Fixed! The two categories affected were Older Male Steeplchaser (tie) and Arabian Older Female (tie).

I thought she had a HOTY type of year, Brian, but she's been butting her head against this new system since day one with her big win against the boys in Week 4 (beating Alsayyad decisively head to head) not even properly counted. Despite that, she tied for Older Arabian Female, but then again, didn't even make the ballot for the second round. Her only blip was in Week 14, when she ran at two miles for the first time and finished second, but avenged that loss two weeks later at two miles in the SC. At this point, I feel the voting is already tainted and it won't matter where she ends up because of it.

EDIT: She's included in the voting now, but only after voting had already been up for a while. She's still at a disadvantage because of issues in both rounds.

Why is All-Weather one category for voting? Shouldn't there be North American All Weather and European All Weather?

Why not just crown the point leader in each division champ?

Would be a good poll topic. For or against?

I for one welcome the chance for Horse Of The Year to be something that never won a G1!

With the qualifier, a horse must be a G1 winner.

That's not what you proposed, and it defeats the purpose of just going by points :D
