The Unusual Will



Here is an old riddle that I heard a while ago.

An old man passed away, leaving his two sons as the heirs to his fortune. His will clearly stated that, to determine who got all his money, his sons would have a horse race, and the owner of the losing horse would inherit his fortune. The sons raced, but it ended in a stalemate because both sons prevented their horses from crossing the finish line. The lawyer in charge of the affair knew that this would not work. So he made one small change to the race. This time, both sons raced, and the one who crossed the finish line first got the money. However, all of the specifications in the will were followed according to what the father wanted. What did the lawyer change?
