When I click on race 45, Belmont 8 furlongs Stakes for 3yo (Dirt) – Jerome Stakes (Grade 2) on September 12 to enter my horse, Unabridged (finalfurlong.org/viewhorse.php?horse=6138), his name doesn’t show up on the list to enter him. He is in Belmont right now, so it’s not a shipping issue…
Sorry in advance if this is a dumb question.
Key in the race is 3yo dirt, Unabridged was born in 2007 (its now 2011) which makes him a 4yo So he’s just a little bit too old to be racing with the young guns. I do it all the time, so it happens to everyone
Whenever I come up with a “weird” thing like that (a horse I’m sure qualifies for a race), I find it helps to check the Upcoming Races option on the horse’s page…if the race shows up there, I at least know the horse should be able to enter the race if he can make it to the track.
Oh, wow. I thought I saw a plus after that ‘3yo’. Maybe I need glasses. :
Hrmm. I haven’t looked at that Upcoming Races link before. Useful!
Thanks for your time!
