I've never seen it used as an excuse before when a horse puts in an average performance... another factor to consider before backing a mare??

Never seen it? It's one of the classic excuses. I've seen it dozens of times and that's just on mares I've backed so I noticed.

The one thing I haven't seen, now that I think about it, is a mare scratched from a race because she's in season. It's always after the flop that we are informed.

It's a well known fact of dealing with horses & ponies of any description but usually overcome in racing by the use of drugs which, unfortunately, often affect their reproductive systems so, damned if you do &.................
Occasionally the odd mare improves her performance whilst in season but it's rare.
Whilst in season, many appear more highly strung, moody & highly uncooperative in general.
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

Have one of our fillies in season this week.

Very distracted & can easily impact performance.

Do you think that stables have no clue that mares are in season on race day or do know and race them anyway?

I would reckon they would  know,  ( how could they NOT know ??  ) ,  but once committed to the race they probably just feel obliged to race and give the horse and owners a chance anyway  .  after all , lots of them do go on and win, so there is nothing to say it will most certainly stop them.  With a lot,  it doesnt,  and how can you know until after they have run ?  Unless of course its happened with the same girl before .  Then you would question the wisdom of it .

A mare racing the other day at her past few starts has been agitated in the yard, when asked pre race by her trainer if he was concerned he said no not really, just having girl issues and had been rather 'horny' lately. I wish I knew earlier because I wouldn't of blown my cash backing her.

Caslicking only stops them sucking air into the vagina. Has no bearing whatsoever on whether or not they are in season.
Regumate shots work though.

I think in Rising Romances case it may have been a bit far fetched she ran up to her run the start prior

sometimes heat or travel can bring it on - often wonder what fillies were given as young'uns to grow as a lot of the spend far too much time in season

You would think mares would not race as well in spring/summer which is their breeding season, however statistics clearly show they actually race better than in winter. Go figure. Perhaps the hormones are a positive.
