This past weekend of big races at Photo Finish™ LIVE reminds us of the wise words a man Ron Burgundy once said – “Boy, that escalated quickly.”
A combined 234,500 $DERBY and a total of nearly $3,000 USD were on the line in Saturday night’s Third Time Derby and Crown Prep races alone, a pretty crazy thing to be saying just weeks out from Beta 2, an archaic long-ago time where all racing was strictly for testing and bragging rights.
As PFL continues rolling towards a massive month of April, let’s take a gander at what the last big race Saturday of March brought to the Third Time Raceway.

Third Time Derby Champion: Gumdrop | Wolaf Farms
Sometimes, it’s best to save the best for last.
On Saturday night the PFL action did just that, with the Wolaf Farms horse Gumdrop putting on a closing-speed clinic to take home the illustrious crown.
Congratulations to Gumdrop, and thanks again to everyone that helps showcase PFL each week on the biggest stage there is — the Third Time Derby.

In the case of Third Time VP of Engineering Abhijit Lothe, he’s a crucial part of the behind-the-scenes magic that’s made.
Abhijit and his family were recently profiled by Parkland Talk about their experience living in Parkland, Florida, a town, ironically, well-known for its IRL horses.
