Questions / Breeders' Series Question
« on: August 20, 2018, 07:03:40 pm »
So, I've been going over all the old posts regarding the Breeders' Series, and I'm still just a tad confused. So, I understand that both the Breeders' Cup and the Breeders' Series require nominations in order for horses to race in them, despite still showing up in the schedule search after checking the "does not require nomination" box. (Bug, maybe?)

The Breeders' Cup is pretty easy to spot in the schedule, but am I understanding right that the Breeders' Stakes races at the end of the year are what make up the Breeders' Series? I noticed nominations for that set of races are required to be submitted in January, and that it seems to only refer to horses you've bred. So I'm guessing horses you didn't breed and who haven't been nominated by their breeders are just out of luck?

These probably all sound like really dumb questions, but I'd appreciate any clarification I can get.

I've got one entered, Ch. Fractal. She won the 9.5f Gr. 1 Acorn Stakes in June and placed 2nd in the 9f Gr. 1 Go For Wand Stakes last month. She seems to be doing well on classic distances, but we'll see how she does running against a bunch of boys.

Great day for our crew!! Gifted Detail was entered on a whim after I realized he had won both his races this year in very big fields. He's still undefeated this year and probably too early to be excited but at least he has a G1 win down! Our first G1 win as well :D

Congratulations! That's always super exciting!
