I've read the articles on what each of the equipment is supposed to help with but I was wondering if there is some sort of equipment that helps with horses when it says: "Chased off rail" I understand what the term means but I don't understand why it happens. Does it mean this is just not a confiden...

Thank you for this, Nikki. I'm probably not going to run my 2-year-old router either. It's only a few weeks until the longer races, I'll be patient. Should I maybe give her another workout instead? Would that be good for anything or is it just as well not to?

Thank you!

I'm curious about this, too, since I also have a horse in this race. I think I read somewhere on this forum that sometimes it is okay to race a 2-year-old potential router in one of the shorter races but to just not put too much into the result. I think it was said, something like, if it's between a...

Thank you so much for the gift of a week of SIMperior, Laura!!! WOW! :) There is a BIG difference between the regular screen and the SIMperior screen. I think I will be hooked and going for the SIMperior too! (Shame I didn't think of this yesterday when there was the sale on game points.) Thank you ...

Great advice, thank you very much! How in the world do you keep track of all of those horses???? Ara, is there a way to separate the horses so you can have the 2-year-olds. 3-year-olds etc. together? On my stable list the horses are listed in alphabetical order. It's a little confusing for me and I ...

Well, I'm definitely interested! It'll be Trial Park for me and my herd! Thanks to everyone with the help with OTB - On The Board makes much more sense here. Thank you so much Miryam for coming up with this contest and for offering your mares and for paying for the breeding! It can't get much better...

Wow! Thank for the great help! I'm learning, slow but sure! Cleo Patra (nice name!) I had no idea that week 16 and week 1 were so close together. I didn't realize how soon the new season starts after the old one is over. I actually thought there were months off inbetween. That poor horse! Worked int...

What a great idea, thank you! I have a stupid question, what does OTB stand for? I always thought it meant Off Track Betting, but that doesn't seem right in this instance. Thank you!!

I want to thank everyone for all of their advice and help! You're all great and I really appreciate it. I ran 2 horses in races on Friday. They both came in last! :( I love them anyway, though! :D One of them was injured during the race, though, and I feel terrible! She has an entrapped epiglottis t...

Hello Everyone! Another Newbie here! :) I'm not totally new to horseracing (I can decipher a racing form to a degree), but I am totally new to SIM-anything!! I have never played any sort of "SIM" so this is all new to me. I do have questions, I'm sorry in advance if they are stupid or obvious. Are t...
