Shanthi - I have a question about qualifier Tie-breakers. I have noticed that there is a fluctuation in rankings from one minute to the next.

In the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, one of my horses, Londesborough Boy is currently showing up as 20th, with 83 pts, 2 Stakes Wins, 2 Stakes Places and 0 Allowance Wins. Earlier this morning, a different horse was showing up as 20th, with 83 pts, 2 Stakes Wins, 2 Stakes Places and 0 Allowance Wins. When it comes down to the last day for entries (i.e. Monday 28th), how will either of the owners know which horse is eligible to be entered, assuming the race doesn't have 14 entries already?

Earnings would be the tie-breaker.

Thanks, Lewis! (and shanthi)

I have a mare and the qualifier page says she's #5 of 6 if I nominate her, so I'm really tempted.  That's a pretty high percentage at getting a paycheck if she entered, right?

Not really. My ponies have a bad habit of being near the top of the qualification list and then not even hitting the board. My bank account doesn't really appreciate that. But maybe your luck is better than mine?

Based on 6 entries, yes - if she's competitive against those 5 horses.

She's got better times than one of the other horses confirmed to run, so my fingers are crossed! :)
