We could let go of a random mile race w7. It should be possible to create two mile races w9 and w11, no?
Another possibility would be to have a 3yo DC stand-in racing over the mile w7, but there may not be an abundance of 3-yo different careers around. :)

Garret, maybe send a help desk email through the Contact Us form? I know miler races open W7, and I don't see why you couldn't create a race during that time. It might be that you can't create the race until closer to the time (since miles aren't available for 2yos at the beginning of the year). She might be able to hand code those for you.

I talked to Em and you cannot create Miler races during Week 7. I tried Week 8 and it didn't seem to be an option there either. It was offered to card the races for this year, but it would be a 1 time thing, and I'd like to make this an annual thing. I thought about getting rid of the mile races, or running it at 7 1/2 furlongs (close to a mile).

Some people are not following instructions, and there are a few outside trainers who have entered horses not on the list. Race B is already full for Week 1, and I still need to enter my horse.

Should be good to go Maddie. I didn't realize the link for the first race A is actually to race B and entered race B. Whoops!

Yeah, i'll scratch one from race A if needed to let someone else run theirs- I couldn't enter the specified one in race B as it was already full when i got around to it.

Is there a way we can ask the people who didn't enter in here to leave the race?

As of now Benard Kowk is entered two horses in Race B that are not suppose to be in there and in race A it's Xander and Kwok again.

Is there any way you can use the contact us or send a straight PM to whomever is in charge and have them restrict it to the details for the race?....otherwise it really isn't worth running cause the horses that aren't supposed to be in there are likely better and will win defeating the purpose of the game....I'd rather just scratch and send the horse back to its owner

I message Kwok and explained the contest and asked him if he would consider pulling out. No response yet. The fun is kind of being pulled out of it because of it. Is there a way the Admin could restrict the horses able to enter like the pegasus?

Race B is ready for the last three entries!
Race A is ready for two out of the three entries! I can pull mine for this round if anybody hasn't gotten in

Sorry everyone, I was away all weekend and didn't get to check on this. I had messaged everyone that wasn't signed up, but had entered. Not sure if they got out of the race or not.

I apologize again for the issues getting this off the ground. What I'm going to do is keep the original schedule, and make the races as long as possible (7 or 7 1/2 Furlongs) for the Week 7 Mile race. Again, it's not ideal, and I know people have already missed a race. Every horse that missed a race has been given 2 points for the first race.

Here is a quick and ugly version of the standings...
