More info on optional claimers


Effective with the May 20 edition, Daily Racing Form past performances include the allowance conditions, or class codes, in optional claiming races instead of just the claiming prices. For example, a $40,000 optional claiming race with a nonwinners-of-two allowance condition will be displayed "OC 40k/n2x." If the horse is not entered to be claimed, an "N" will be appended to the class code. The new display helps to define more clearly the class levels for optional claiming races.
