How do you continue with the race if less than three horses have crossed the finish line when the Running Strength boxes have all bee used?

We decided to continue by using the last Running Strength number again.

But it did seem that you might just end the race right there and use the horses closest to the finish to decide the top three.

This has happened a few times, but I can not find it adressed in the 3M rules, nor do I think I am missing any other rules.

Do thers have this problem?

I don't have the rules in front of me, but I'm almost certain it says you keep using the last value.

That is exactly right: you continue to use the last number each turn until the race is over. This is specifically mentioned in the rules for the Avalon Hill edition of this fine game.

Thanks for the quick replies. This makes sense as it reward horses with stronger class.

I do not see this anywhere in the 3M rules.

I would say you start with the first movement again, but then I don't have the rules in front of me and I could be thinking of the way you do it in http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1869/jagersro

I don't think this would be correct because then the advantage goes back to horses who rate well in SPEED. This does not seem right to me.

The 3M game addresses this issue in the 1970 copyright rules. Repeat the last Running Srength number until the race ends. The Daily Double odds chart was changed in 1970.
