Title: Breeders Series qualifiers
Post by: imagine on November 11, 2016, 04:51:48 PM
Will these be updated fairly soon? Just trying to get my race planning in order (also known as procrastinating from more serious work!).

Thanks for the reminder - re-ran the scripts. :)

Hi

I thought that the Breeders Series races were gender specific? If so, then there is a filly (Hurricane Election) in the 2 year old colts race (Rainbow Quest Breeders Stakes)

They should be gender specific, I'm not sure if the code is setup to handle colt-only races though. Having said that, she shouldn't have qualified for the race to begin with, so I'm not sure how she got entered.

Hurricane Election isn't even qualified for any of the BS races, so shouldn't have been able to be entered at all.

In addition, Take Wing, who finished last in the Demand To Know Breeders' Stakes for 2yo F, Race # 44, isn't qualified either.

Shanthi - I remember that this was a problem with the script a few years ago and you had fixed it then. Possibly a change that you made to "fix" some problem or another may have undone part of the section preventing a horse being entered for a BS race who isn't on the BS qualifiers lists.

FYI, I believe I've fixed the bug for allowing non-qualified horses to enter.

Unfortunately, unless Krajina entered Beer Street & Personal Revenge in the Townsend Prince Breeders' Stakes (Race #44 on Dec 21st) & Faithful Lady & Silver Sixpence in the Dream Skipper Breeders' Stakes (Race 45 on Dec 21st) before you made the fix, it didn't work, or there is another bug related to this issue.
