Bizarre horsepower shootout waged on Australian track

Yesterday's Aussie audience at the Victoria Derby at Mooney Valley witnessed an unusual horsepower battle-- I Am Sam, a 3-year-old gelding, versus a 2004/2005 Porsche Carrera Cup 911 driven by racer Dean Grant.

Part of a Hankook Tires promotional event, Porsche pilot Grant cropped his way to the win, no surprise given jockey Andrew McCarthy was saddled with but a single horsepower drivetrain.
