Seeding formula: Note: In accordance with the conditions and with the intention of making fields of equal caliber, the eliminations, if necessary, of the Hambletonian® Open and the Oaks will be seeded by the following procedure:
1. Horses will be sorted in the order of total money earnings based on the following formula: Total career money earnings will be considered -- but monies accumulated through the date of declaration during their three-year-old year and in their last six starts would be weighted twice as much as the monies earned during the two-year-old season. For example, if a horse earned $100,000 as a two-year-old and $200,000 as a three-year-old and $150,000 in his last six starts, his assigned value would be $800,000 ($100,000 + (2 x $200,000) + (2 x $150,000) = $800,000). These earnings would be based on USTA official money earnings at the time of declaration. 2. Horses will be assigned a rank (group) based on the above formula and the number of elimination heats. For example: If there are eighteen horses, there will be two elimination divisions. The horses with the highest and the second highest money earnings as calculated above will be assigned rank #1; horses three and four would be assigned rank #2; horses five and six would be assigned rank #3; down to horses seventeen and eighteen who would be assigned rank #9. Beginning with the 1st rank, at least half the field of each elimination division (five of nine horses in this example) will be determined by randomly sorting the horses of each group into a separate division. The remainder of the divisions will be determined by lot.
3. Horses either owned by common interests or trained from the same stable will be separated as much as possible.
No horse shall be permitted to race in the Open or the Oaks with Phenylbutazone (Butazolidin ™) or Furosemide (Salix™, formerly Lasix).
