    Perhaps someone can tell me why there are colts in this carrying less than the 9st 2lb

    ‘Weights colts & geldings 9st 2lb; fillies 8st 11lb Penalties a winner of a Listed race 3lb; of a Group 3 race 5lb; of a Group 2 or Group 1 race 8lb’

    Thanks, Tim

    The weight they carry is I believe to do with how much they cost at auction.

    Its to do with the average price of the stallions offsprings apparently .

    I stand corrected.

    Thanks Potato. You’d think they’d make a mention of that in the race conditions.

    Another odd one in the 6.00 Doncaster, The Jean Genie not in receipt of a fillies/mares allowance.

    ‘Weights 3yo fillies 8st 12lb; colts & geldings 8st 12lb; 4yo+ fillies 9st 4lb; colts & geldings 9st 4lb’

    If you look at those weight allowances there is no fillies/mare allowance. the allowance is only for age due to it being a classified stakes race.

    Agree with yesterdays race that they should have made it clear how the weights were worked out.

    Thanks again Potato, found the rule you quoted regarding clasified stakes
    139.1 All weight allowances for a horse are cumulative unless otherwise specified.
    139.2 Fillies and mares shall, unless the Authority directs otherwise, receive the following allowances

    139.2.1 5lb in respect of a flat race which is not a flat Pattern Race, is not a flat Classified Stakes or is not a Rating Related Maiden Race;
    139.2.2 3lb in respect of a flat Pattern Race;
