Feb. 3, 1989: Apprentice jockey Nate Hubbard hung on for second literally when his horse, Sweetwater Oak, stumbled near the finish line at Golden Gate Fields and flipped the rider out of his saddle. As he tumbled forward, Hubbard grabbed on to the fillys neck and hung in mid-air until the race was over. The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race.
