Re: Will you be using First Class Shipping?

Is it so much about getting more starts? Or better effort for the normal races and the ability to ship further without repercussion? I'd take the latter as the only thing to focus on. Perhaps your runner gets you a stakes win versus a second place finish with 1st class shipping. at the low end, you...

Re: Will you be using First Class Shipping?

Assume a player uses First Class Shipping
and averages 1 additional start per horse per year
and averages, at least, $5K per start.

Wouldn't the additional earnings from the additional start more than cover the additional cost of First Class Shipping?

Make that 3 :)
But you have to admit that the 3rd one was a very impressive pinhook -- $742K profit on a DR stakes colt that will likely earn less than its original purchase price ($258K).

Re: Y55 Update Thread

Remember that this is one of the ways to pull money out of the game, so it seems to make sense as an all or nothing approach. I try like crazy to find races for my horses within 500 miles if I can and within 1,000 miles if I can't find anything closer. I hate shipping farther, but to know I can now...

Re: Complain or discuss GP Auction Format here

Given the phenomenal success of this auction, I am very confident that the next GP auction will not be held in the Forum -- that is, it will be automated.

Re: W16 Anxiety

I have no concerns about this week. But as always, I will have concerns about the following weeks (break). All of my usual (Sim) routines will be missing. So I am thinking about going to Hawaii. Of course, I will probably just think about going and end up staying home.

Re: TBS Foal Auction-What did you get?

...23 degrees and windy this morning in Kentucky for a cold three mile run, 77 and sunny in Cocoa Beach now. I'll take the change. Of all the places that I have lived, my most enjoyable long (1+ hour) runs in January were in Florida. I even ran the 2000 Disney Half-Marathon (1:32:41). I hope you br...

Re: Y55 Update Thread

Given 1. The price of Steward breds will likely rise dramatically because of their phase out. 2. The limit on how many Steward-breds an individual can own per year will be lifted. I do not understand why the remaining partnerships can not acquire additional Steward-breds. For those Steward-breds com...

Re: Bye Bye Steward Bred's

Just a bunch of thoughts running in my head regarding this new can of worms introduced to us today. I remember the steward once saying that a horses racing ability and mare rating are generated at birth. To me this means that if that bell curve freak limit or stake limit gets filled early on, there...
