It's really not! I promise! Lol Say that the fastest time of the night was a 15.0. That's where the 1D starts. So, the 2D would start at 15.5, the 3D would start at 16.0, 4D would start at 16.5, and the 5D would be 17.0. (If they're running a 5D race. That's usually just for the bigger shows though.) It really just depends on what the fastest time of the night is. Does this make any sense?
I wish a 17.0 would win 1D here.. I consistantly run 16s but for 1D you have to hit a 15 to place..I fall in the 2D hole all of the time..The 2D "hole" as we call it, is what a majority of the people I run with run those 16..It's the toughest to place in, we're all always right on top of each other.
I still have a month until shows start up around here! I wish it was sooner. I cannot wait! I've gotten all new western show tack and I cannot wait to show it off in the ring. Haha. Along with my mare who has improved greatly since last show season! Good luck to all of you whos shows have started up! :) I'll try to remember to post about my shows when they start up.
