You are looking for horses to get killed in the making of the race!
If I ever what o use this problem statement, I would specify full length of the course with enough room for one horse in each lane.

If you make use of only half the length of the track, then it would'nt be a good indicator of the winner. The standard racing distance ought to be maintained. Hence I feel that you have to run seperate races.

5/25:1 - 6
5/25:2 - 7 (last race: 2 horses)
5/25:3 - 7
5/25:4 - ?
