I don't have any solid information on this, but from what I've observed they wouln't take major points off unless it affected the horse's gaits. Most young horses pop splints just running around outside, so it is not uncommon, and I would suppose the judges would grade accordingly. Obviously they are graded slightly better in the appropriate linear scores if they have very clean legs, but I know 1st premie horses who had splints when they were younger and it did not drastically effect their scores.
My own guess would be that unless they are really pretty bad, any mark-down would not be enough to notice.
