: I have a dog born on 1 Sept 2014 - I want to
: run him in an American Field Derby stakes
: and the ages are confusing
: Is he still a derby or not?
Years ago, I told Bill Brown he should change the "derby rule" to allow a dog to run derby stakes until it was 30 months old. He told me that "Pros could never remember the birthdate on all their derbies." I told him that AKC pros must be a lot smarter than FDSB pros because that's what the AKC does with my ECS. I got no response to that but years later, that rule is still the same and still confuses people. I think it took me a couple of years to figure it out.
