Re: A+ Thoroughbred Hypo

I think everyone is right. There appears to be a wide range of outcomes for a DR horse that gallops stakes. I've had a few that have struggled to get to $50K in winnings - I'm assuming they are at the bottom of the stakes galloping spectrum - and you have others like Crayon who I assume is just bare...

Re: TS Campaigning Prep help

I have zero TS horses, but my strategy has always been to look at last few years' top horses and looked at their training/race schedule. I often times messaged their owners and asked if they wouldn't mind sharing the horse's soundness (no one has refused to answer that question). It helps me look at...

If I'm willing to pay $5 million for a Steward's Cup winner who has produced 2 freaks, but not willing to pay more than $1 million for a generic Grade 1 winner, how do I stop the "that's not fair" ness? I was actually leaning strongly towards keeping Steward-breds, with restrictions, transparency, ...

Re: Steward-breds

So what would everyone's recommendation be about me leasing mares from other players. They don't get to race the foal, or they do? If I'm willing to pay $5 million for a Steward's Cup winner who has produced 2 freaks, but not willing to pay more than $1 million for a generic Grade 1 winner, how do ...

Re: Post Position - Does It Matter?

I’m really confused by PPs in game because they work so differently to the way they do when I’m riding in races in real life. That said, I think they only show as a point of difference in full stacked fields like SC. If you’re in a 5 horse field with a superior animal then you could probably run an...

Re: Short DR/Mile Breeding Question

Andrew is spot on (as usual!). Dragon and Pegasus is a great sire for this type of mare. I've had a lot of success with him.
