Post UK Combo Vanilla Schedule Bugs
* The early races for SA for 2 year olds get no runners.

** Also the top flat 2 yr old seems calculated based only on Jan-Apr. Other flat horse of the year calculations may also be that way, but it is easily demonstrated with the 2 yr old flat category, by combining these bugs.

Steps to reproduce in under 5 minutes.
1. Create vanilla UK combo, unmodded game and schedule, take all default values on all screens.
2. After form run, start game and fix stable location.
3. Sell all starting horses.
4. Skip to next couple of yearling auctions and buy two super cheap yearlings.
5. Set all feed/staff to low, buy one trailer.
6. Skip past end of year to Jan 8th of next year. Yearlings will have popped in to stable as 2 yr olds on the 1st.
7. *Note that the SA Races for 2 yr olds: the Princess Charlene of Monaco and the Kuda Sprint have no runners. They never do.
8. Enter one of your yearlings in each.
9. Skip to race day, and collect your two walk overs. Should be a lot more than the yearlings were worth. ;)
10. Note the next 2yr old SA race, the All To Come maiden does have entries. So bug may be with non-maidens.
11. ** Go to the Horses -> Top Horse by Category button screen, note that your Kuda sprint walkover "winner" is now top 2 yr old.
12. Skip to Apr 10
13. ** Go to the Horses -> Top Horse by Category button screen, note that your Kuda sprint walkover "winner" is almost certainly still the top 2 yr old.
14. ** Skip again to end flat season and see your horse listed on the screen.
15. You WON'T get the achievement. Which is fine, but then how was it calculated? Are they all broken?

* Bug 1
** Bug 2

Currently testing:

start=1
end=365
start_flat=1
end_flat=353
start_jmps=233
end_jmps=159

I play slow. So no data yet on the HotY calculations with it. I widened the dates to grab a few races of each type as well as fixing run to northern hemisphere flat breeding dates.

It does get entries in the 2yo early Jan SA specials. You can tell easily by doing a multi-year form run, then using the Diary to look for past winners. In stock there will be no past winners. Arguably, in a northern hemisphere schedule the SA 2yr old specials in early Jan make little sense. SA/AUS/JPN/HK entries though do make sense as those are southern hemisphere birthday 2 yr olds and could debut early Jan, and the nationalities are in the schedule. So I didn't want to delete them just to fix it.

Works better for breeding realism, as with stock schedule you need to avoid breeding Jan 1 - Apr 10 (most of the real northern hemisphere breeding schedule).
