Yes I think some of them would be definitive, and a couple would be relatively
easy to achieve. What the paper said was that heartrate recovery was not
definitive--not close, as far as actual recovery and readiness to go on is
concerned. So, if that's a primary criteria, then why not substitute something
else, rather than passing a horse that can't go on or holding a horse that can
go on?
