How is there a barn auto dispersal of his horses if he is still playing? What am I missing?

This is probably the most bizzare part https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1246519 This horse is owned by someone else and listed in the auction. You can't bid on it, but it is a listed horse in this auction https://www.simhorseracing.com/auctions ... ionID=4457

George had made an offer to new players to be given some of his horses and Gwen was in the process of accepting them when the auctions were generated. There will be a number of them in the auction that are actually ones that were given to Gwen and Em has passed those onto her as they were meant to be.

He was allowed to do so 🤷‍♀️ Up to 30%. He had thousands of horses, I highly doubt his stakes+ equated to 30%, I could be wrong.

Side note: why would he want to share them with anyone else? Glenn E was his “partner”, and no one seemed to approve with how they played...

I wasn't aware of a 30 percent rule. I stand corrected and thanks for the info.

I tried to take them all out of the auctions while I did it. The one linked above has an auction ID of 0. Are they still in the auctions???

I can confirm this. George offered me about 60 or 70 miler horses. I was doing some bookkeeping on the first batch of horses he sent me (because I thought I had time) and then George deleted his account, and the horses I hadn't accepted yet went to the pending auction list.

I PM'ed the Steward in a bit of a panic and she kindly manually transferred most of the missing horses to me.

I didn't even realize accounts could go that quickly. Maybe this can be a learning lesson for everyone - if someone offers you a lot of horses because they're quitting click "accept" first and do the bookkeeping after!

Is it winning a lottery? Seems like he lost two trainers he was very close with and had great relationships with...I’m sure Glenn would rather have JR and George still in the game than “winning the lottery.”
