Zipse: Maybe racing should use a BCS system to determine HOY
Like many racing fans, HRN’s Brian Zipse is frustrated over how the Horse of the Year vote is decided, and he offers some food for thought on a possible point-based system similar to the BCS (Bowl Championship Series) used in college football.
The system might use a statistical rating system that consists of the subjective polls of the NTRA, an industry ‘straw poll,’ and computer rankings. Is it possible that such a system might even encourage owners of the nation’s top horses to consider more match-ups?
What do you think is the answer?
