The Claimapalooza Contest Main Page

Post by Sten Rino Haakonsen » 11 months ago

This will be the Main page of the contest meaning this is where people will enter their claimers

Here are some ground rules
* To Enter you must get together a group of 6 horses that they either claimed during week 1 of the season or claimers already in their barn that were claimed before by the player that wants to enter them
* When the contest starts you just enter those horses in races as normal and you get points for how well they do in races
higher difficulty gets more points
* people will enter 6 claimers each and they might be claimers already in a players barn or a claimer that the player claims during the first week of the season which will be a preparation week so if any of the horses are entered in races during week 1 they are still eligible for the contest but any results they get during that week will not count towards their point score

* races with restrictions will not count towards your point total meaning I wont say you cannot enter a horse in a restricted race but if you do you wont get ny point in this contest

* If your horse is put in a claiming race and gets claimed you will still be able to get points from it as you only need to own the horse at the start of the competition

* A horse must have been claimed at some point for 5 k or less to be eligible for the contest


*Points will be awarded as follows

G1 1000p for WIN 750 p for 2nd 500p for third
G2 750P for Win 500p for 2nd 250p for third
G3 250P for win 100p for 2nd 50p for third
listed 100p for win 50p for 2nd 25p for third
allowance 50p for win 25p for 2nd 10p for third
claimer 25p for win 10p for 2nd 1p for third


Okay Good Luck everybody
If there are any rules you think I forgot and need to put in please do tell me about it
Prizes and stuff like that will be mentioned in the other post

Go enter your horses below and
Get your claims on

What about restricted races like got new players only or Junior players only etc.
Do NW's count the same as allowances? If not what about claiming NW's?

No restricted races will count and that goes for new player only and junior player only races as well
The rule that is here to make sure this is equal is the one that makes sure you cannot enter anything that was claimed for more than 5k
Yes regular nws count the same as open allowance races and claiming nws count the same as open claiming races

So the horses need to be claimed for less than $5k or they can be claimers we already have? Does this mean they galloped as ‘claimer’ or ones we have gotten in claiming raves from prior year(s)? Sorry if I’m confusing things!
Claimed from claiming races for 5k or Less whether it’s this week or ones you got last year or beyond

I don't think it's fair if you start counting points in week 2 because the people with previously claimed horses can race before the ones who claim horses week 1

We have terrible luck! Hopefully Sten will let us claim more. I’m fine missing some racing points with late claims. It will still be fun to play.
Maybe we could divide # of points by number of starts? To get average points per start
