Perfect Spirit placed first after wild finish in Hambletonian

It may not have been a perfect finish in the Hambletonian on Saturday at the Meadowlands, but those connected to Perfect Spirit will take it.

Perfect Spirit, trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt, finished second in the $1 million marquee race but was declared the winner because of a disqualification. What The Hill, who finished first, was placed ninth, for interfering with Guardian Angel AS in the stretch. Perfect Spirit (7-1), lead throughout the race, but in the stretch was challenged by What The Hill, who went on to cross the finish line a half length in front of Perfect Spirit in 1:52 3/5.

Looked like the 9's front left clipped the wheel of What the Hill.

Stewards took a while to make a decision. Curious to see what you think Yappi since you know the rules better at about standardbred racing.

I don't know the specific rules but watching the race, that looked like the right call. The #4 didn't have the room to make the move.

Judging by the drivers reaction right after the other horse broke and after the race ended, I think he knew that was the correct call too.
