2/15 - Race # 16

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.
