    Default Full Moon Effect? How Many Series?

    Been pretty calm on RTF lately. We had a full moon this past week along with more than one trial in which non-derby stakes went less than four series.

    An Open did not have a land blind, yet finished by noon Sunday. At another trial the Qual. had only one dog survive the first series. This lone dog ran a water blind and the stake ended.

    What do you feel are legit reasons to have less than four series in any stake?

    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.

    Where did anyone give details about the test? How are you able to call it a nice Qual test?

    I'm just wanting to know what instances allow for less than four series?

    no that was a derby judge that dropped dogs that picked up the birds. He had to get to the Am.
