The Breeders Course for 2 years old horses will consist of a maximum of 5 elimination. The two (2) first finishers from each elimination are qualified for the final which will have a maximum of 10 horses. If an elimination is split into two races, the two winners are qualified for the final. Should a qualified horse refrain from participating in the final the third finisher (by split eliminations the second finisher) with best time in the eliminations be qualified to the final. It means for example that it could be only one from the first elimination in the final and three from the second elimination in the final. Before the drawings (to the final) we check all eliminations and see which no 3 who have the best race time in the elimination and give them the posibility of participating in the final. A horse must have participated in an elimination in order to qualify for the final. A horse who has not paid the fees to Breeders Course may participate in an elimination in terms of place but not in the final. In the eliminations is always priority to horses that have paid all fees.

Drawings to the final is as follows:

The winners in the eliminations always get lane 1-5 and the draw is always done by racetrack who have the final. If only four winner starts in the final they get lane 1-4 etc.
