The numbers game would help the cause but that is not the reason a bluetick has ever won. From history that I have heard there has been a couple of times that it could/should have already happened. Here is something that I did awhile back.
There are 26 letters in the alphabet.
I wrote each letter on a piece of paper then pulled 3 letters out at a time.
That represented an 11.5% percentage.
I then tried to find a year, since the UKC World Hunts started, that the last name of the owner of the winning dog started with one of those 3 letters.
After several tries, using different randomly drawn letters, every time I could find an owner whose last name started with one of those three letters.
Not winning one time over 30 years would be like saying that a person who's last name that started with C for instant couldn't win the World Hunt because there weren't enough owners entering with their last name starting with C. Now it would be harder for that to happen since the percentage would be considerable lower than 11.5% but it could happen and would definitely be related to the dogs ability, the handlers ability, and the breaks needed just like any other dog that is entered.
