Park Avenue Joe & Probe: Dead Heat Excitement

The 64th Hambletonian looked to be one of the most exciting, eagerly anticipated battles in many years - pitting two-year-old champion colt Valley Victory against two-year-old filly champ Peace Corps. The Hambo did indeed live up to its hype but neither Valley Victory nor Peace Corps played a part in it. Valley Victory, suffering from a virus, never entered the race, leaving Peace Corps the overwhelming favorite.

The filly carried a 17-race winning streak into the Hambo, and the hopes were high among her trainer Tom Haughton, driver John Campbell, and owner Bjorn Pettersson of Sweden.
