That was today's R5. at Evangeline Downs.
While watching the race, I thought that #6 Kiki Kat won easily, but the stewards called it a dead heat with Rockett Magic.
So, it's a dead heat.

Dead heat is the correct answer!

You can't go by that photo, the stewards have much better quality I would hope.

It looks like a old Polaroid.

Photo finishes posted online are compressed as I understand it.

I was literally on the finish line at the rail for that race. I was 100% sure (maybe wishful thinking since I bet her) that Beholder won.

It was such a great race by both horses I still get goosebumps when I watch it. Songbird developed less than you would hope from 2-3 and then tailed off later, but what a race!

Evangeline are dead-heat happy! That's 3 in 3 days so far.

Those are not the images the Stewards see.
From my understanding, photographic equipment used to record finishes uses a 10k frame per second(FPS) camera which is also High Definition and digitized.

Worth noting that Collmus, who gets a booth very close to the finish for the BC, called it definitively as Beholder. He had no doubt.
