As per the Ontario Rule 11.02.01 If a horse meets the conditions of Rule 11.01 it will be considered qualified and eligible to be declared to added money event races provided that one of its last three charted lines is a clean line in a purse, qualifying or schooling race, not more than forty-five (45) clear days before the closing of declarations and its individual time in that....
So she's in, right?
Well, not so sure as per rule 11.02.02: Not withstanding the provisions of 11.02.01 no horse shall be considered qualified and eligible to be declared to added money event races if that horse, since having obtained the clean charted line referred to in 11.02.01, is required to qualify in accordance with the rules, including Chapter 12 where applicable, or is on the Judges List or is other wise ineligible to race.
So we look at Chapter 12 and see the following:
12.09 A horse making a break in or off a qualifying, matinee or schooling race must qualify again unless the break was an equipment break or caused by interference, or unless the horse is declaring into an Ontario Sires Stakes or other added money event.
Well, the Breeders Crown is an added money event, so she's in, right? Well, lets move ahead....
12.10.01 A horse making a break in each of two consecutive races must qualify unless the breaks were equipment breaks or caused by interference.
Oops, maybe not.
To me, it appears there will be some fancy footwork required to get her in to race, though I certainly don't think she deserves to be in the race based off her recent performances. It should be interesting on Thursday morning as the owners and the racing commission tries to define what 'must' means.
