Breeders Cup Qualifiers
« on: September 09, 2016, 05:00:59 am »
Hi Shanthi

With the Breeders cup just around the corner, there doesn't seem to be a lot of horses qualified for any of the races. Are the lists correct, or do you need to do you magic for them to auto update.

Regards

Hi Shanthi,

Just a follow-up to Spudly's post of 3 weeks ago, when do you think you're going to get around to run the script to do the BC rankings? The BC races are in just over 4 weeks.

I, for one, like to plan my entries ahead of time so I can ensure that any horses I plan to run have a bit of rest at home before shipping to Belmont with enough time for them to become acclimatized to the track and conditions. In addition, once I know which horses are qualified (i.e. Ranked high enough) for these races, then I can map out racing plans for those that either aren't "quailfied" or whose recent form don't warrant them being entered.

Thanks.
Lewis

Update: script ran without issues, so I'll keep an eye on it when races run again (it should be running automatically every race day, but clearly wasn't).

I've wiped the BC qualifiers list and re-calculated it as it double counted things today. I think I've got it sorted so that it should auto-update every race day, will find out on Wednesday.
