Horses that have more than 3 starts, only the best 3 scores will be counted in the average.
The series is open to any horse, Under 5 years of age as of July 31st 2016
Horses can have started in a draft
It is up to the local committee whether they run a Restricted Futurity (a futurity for horses that have not started in an open aged event, eg, maiden, novice, open, encouragement, ladies, etc) or Open Futurity (can have started) is held.
Points only apply to HORSES THAT HAVEN'T STARTED IN AN OPEN AGE EVENT
Horses that have accumulated points in the series and then start in an open aged event will be automatically removed from the leaderboard and won't be eligible for the final
Final for the 2017 Future Stars series will be at Alpha on August 3rd
If your horse can compete, it will be just another futurity to boost your average
If you horse can't compete, you'll need 3 previous scores to qualify before Clermont
The rider of the horse in the final must have at least one score in another futurity on the horse. If you are seriously injured, however, you can change the rider in the final at our discretion.
The final will be the top 10 horses with the highest average
Those finalists will receive a shirt from Hitchley & Harrow to be worn during the final.
At the end of this normal event, the 10 will run a separate final on their own
The score in the final will add to your average to obtain a winner, eg. 86.5 + 90 = 176.5

DISPUTES ABOUT SCORES OR INCORRECT HORSES
Any disputes regarding scores must be made within 3 days after the end of each draft directly to us - not the participating committee.
Any discrepancy between committee information and what is alleged, eg, incorrect horse name, will always favour what the committee has recorded.
It's your responsibility and it is respectful to all committees that your information is correct before you ride in their event.
Any misconduct, unfavourable or down right non-human behaviour, such as harassment or abuse directed at us or host committees will be reported to the ACA Code of Conduct committee.
Depending on the outcome of the Code of Conduct, you may be excluded from the next Series as well as all other Campdraft Central PTY LTD promotional activities.
