RULES & ENTRIES
It's a 2yo contest and the simple stipulation is that all entrants must be bred using a sire that is located in England. When searching sires, simply click on the all locations tab on the right and select ENG-England. I've pasted a list of all eligible sires at the bottom of this post so please check that list before you breed if you aren't sure.
Entries can be either scratch bred or bred from mares and be either credit or BP breeds. There is no limit on what you can spend on any horse – that's completely up to you. To level the playing field, all races count the same, whether a maiden claimer or a graded stakes. HOT races do not count, but any other race does. So you can breed at the cheaper end and start off in MCL's if you want to - something available for all and with an equal chance of picking up prizes. A word of warning though, if you do run in a claimer and your horse is claimed, any further races do not count to that horse's points total. So it could be a risky strategy...!
The contest is open to everyone who resides at Pastures. Each player can enter a maximum of 3 horses and each horse's first 4 race results give it's score. All horses must be unraced when entered and be in a stable supporting Pastures.
A win is worth 5 points, a place 3 points, a show 1 point. So the maximum score a horse can put up is 20 points in their 4 races. Any points ties will be settled by fastest spf in those 4 races. If still tied, monies won will come into effect. Each player can only win 1 prize with the winning player getting first pick and so on. There are 6 prize horses to choose from:
The contest starts straight away but you must declare each horse in this thread before you run it. Please list each entry in a separate post (unless you are declaring 3 at the same time, then one post is fine) and link the horse if you can to make it easier for me to track. The contest will close at the end of August which should give everyone plenty of time to get 4 runs in.
Here's a list of the eligible ENG sires:
We had some really nice entrants last year so hoping for some good ones again this time around. Also hoping the prize horses work out a little better this year... And there are some really nice looking Freshman sires this year too. Might be using one or two of those myself.
Good luck and hope to see plenty of winners!
