The two (2) first finishers from each elimination (three (3) if four eliminations) are qualified for the final which will have a maximum of 12 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) be qualified to the final etc. A horse who has been disqualified in an elimination can never qualify for 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 1-6 (with 10 horses in the final 1-5 and lane 1-4 if only four eliminations). If only four eliminations the second horses will have 5,6,9,10 and the third horses 7,8,11,12. The draw is always done by racetrack who have the final. A Winner (as we call it) is the first eligible horse in each race and it's the same with the second horse or third (if four eliminations) who qualifies for the final it must be eligible.
There are always two horses (five or six eliminations) or three horses (four eliminations) from each elimination that qualify for the final. If it appears before the draw that only one horse or two (four eliminations) from an elimination can race in the final, ST draws between all racetracks which racetrack who gets three or four (four eliminations) horses in the final. ST will also draw between all racetracks which racetracks that gets three horses in the final when it is five eliminations.
