Breeders' Stakes Series Qualifiers

I was just wondering approximately when the list of qualifiers will be available for the Breeders’ Stakes Series?

The list is done, but nominations don’t close until Monday, so the list will be posted on Tuesday.

Looking at the list, it’s pretty sad (only 5 qualified 2yo fillies for the Turf series).

Therefore, I’m nominating all FF-bred horses to the Breeders’ Series, at least for this year. That should help boost the number of qualified horses.

Shanthi…I was looking at the stakes race schedule, and noticed that both the Highland Sorceress and Highland Raven Breeders’ Stakes are apparently in the database as open races, not F&M.

(Along similar lines, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is, for some reason, in as a dirt race…is this deliberate?)

I fixed the Highland Sorceress/Highland Raven stakes yesterday.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe should be a turf race, and is now in the database as such.

Thanks!

I think Shanthi originally changed some turf races to dirt races because with including international racing, there would have been a pretty big imbalance. Some of the Australian ones are the same. :slight_smile:

Breeders’ Series Qualification List

Only horses on this list will be eligible to enter any Breeders’ Series race (use the schedule search to search for “Breeders’ Stakes” in Nov/Dec and it’ll pull up the 42 races in question).

Only 2/3 entries per stable, as usual. (The 2nd/3rd entry may only be entered on the final day entries are open, same as always)

Note: This list is dynamic…this means that your horse may qualify for one race but not another.

Any breeder that breeds any one horse who sweeps any one triple will get a supplemental bonus of $500,000 (per horse, of course, so if you happen to breed 14 horses who somehow sweep all 14 triples…well, you’ll be sitting pretty :wink: :stuck_out_tongue:).

The stable that breeds the horses that win the most points in the Breeders’ Series will get a supplemental bonus of $1,000,000.

Oh, and it goes without saying (I hope) that Final Furlong is exempt from winning the series. (Though, having spend $2.14 million to nominate all those foals to the series, I will probably give FF the $500,000 if any horse(s) it bred win(s) (a) triple(s) :wink:)

Just as a reminder: If I have to scratch your horse because you didn’t bother to verify that it qualifies before you enter the race, you will not be notified, and you will not get your entry fee back.

And another reminder: This list is dynamic. That means that, while you may qualify for race 1 of a series, if your horse tanks and another horse happens to do well, your horse may not appear on the qualifying list for the next race in the series. That’s the way it goes - deal with it.
