Consolation round, ANY open entry not qualifying for the FINALS will go into the draw for the consolation round. Clean slate/Random drawA contestant may qualify multiple horses for the Showdown finals, but a horse and rider combination may qualify only once for the Showdown Round.   Example – if Bobby Barrel Racer qualifies his horse “Lightning” for the showdown finals round in the 1st go in the 1d and then comes back in the 2nd round and has a slower run and places in the 2d (or again in the 1d), he will still win money for the round, but he will not receive an additional qualification spot.
