It's just sad really. I get it, shit happens, but how are these things not caught?
Now that you mention it, doesn't the photo finish mechanism get tripped slightly before the wire to ensure it's running as the horses cross the finish line? Maybe it stopped the timer instead? You're right though, those two systems should be independent of each other.

I don't look at this as some sort of "mistake" or screw up. This is rather unsettling, and warrants an explanation from the track officials. Which I'm confident will not happen.
