Every 10 starts without success you drop a class......if you are a C10 and race 90 times without winning you will become a C1.The secret is in the understanding of the word "handicapper"......in the races I mentioned and others not mentioned the office respons...

Well then really, that's the trainer's fault - not the handicappers. And I'm not sure that's how handicapping works in WA. I'm 95% sure you cant drop to a C4 to a C1 based on a losing sequence. Mares can drop a class against the boys, and juniors can drop a cl...

Yep, old "qualifying stakes" was for 2.25 or better which equates to C3....agree the RBD of The San Simeon Final makes for a potential no contest.

You sure they didn't get the wrong jockey??? Simone on the 2nd horse stopped riding a few strides out and nearly looked to pull it up, but randy was on a animal paddling at best and if he did much more he could have been accused of flogging a dead horse!?!?!!?...
