Sometimes common sense must over-ride verbatim rules. But that does require some stones. The production of horse races is not always a smooth, risk-free process. Tough calls and trouble tend to pop up.
I think you meant interpolate.
I agree with Tom here.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
If a rule is too rigid or doesn't make sense you don't circumvent the rule.
And why was it such a problem to schedule an additional workout to qualify this horse? Was there a fear that the horse would not qualify again? What important motive was there to not simply report the facts and instead tamper with one's integrity?
