2/15 - Race # 16
« on: February 15, 2006, 08:03:26 pm »
Hi Shanthi,

Just wanted to confirm that Persuasive Lover was scratched from race 16 today.  I guess you had some problems running that race and had to scratch some horses.  Not a big deal at all, I just want to make sure I'm not goin' crazy and didn't enter him.

Yes.  I think I've said this before, but if not:  The current race code has been on crack for a long while, and sometimes it refuses to run races if the field is too big.  Therefore, I have to scratch horses at the last minute.  The order of preference for doing this is:

1. duplicate entries by a stable
2. most recent entries

I also generally default to scratching my own horses first, if they apply with the above conditions, since it's not members' fault the code's being grumpy.
