The “bubble,” is the score you must have marked equal to or greater than in order to make it back to ride in the next go. The bubble for all Open levels for the 2nd go & for the Finals is listed below.
The 1st section of the 2nd go will begin this afternoon (Tuesday, 12/1). Riders will ride in the same sections as the 1st go (qualifiers from the 1st section of 1st go will ride today, 2nd section tomorrow, etc.). The draw is the draw from the 1st go but in reverse order (the 1st draw to qualify in the order from the 1st go will now ride last in the 1st section of the 2nd go).
How the bubbles are factored for the Open Finals:
Level 3 Open – Top 25 horses (plus ties)
Level 2 Open – Top 20 horses (plus ties)
Level 1 Open – Top 15 horses (plus ties)
Here are the bubbles for the Open Finals:
L2 – 426
L3 – 428.5
L4 – 434
Congrats & good luck to everyone showing!
Level 4 Open – Top 100 horses (plus ties)
Level 3 Open – Top 75 horses (plus ties)
Level 2 Open – Top 75 horses (plus ties)
Level 1 Open – Top 50 horses (plus ties)
L1 – 203.5 (L1 riders must score a 203.5 or greater to ride in 2nd go)
L2 – 209
L3 – 211
L4 – 212
