Can't wait to see some of those 100 speed figure babies in Barrier Trials over 5 furlongs this week!

I just galloped mine but I have a few new older freaks that I'd love to 'boost confidence' with!

I had a 6 year old turf router upgrade to freak status so he will need it lol

I generally don't have any issues having my horses fully fit for their first start, so going to pass on them.

I’m trying out a couple of 3 year olds waiting for much longer races to keep them fit. Rather handy, but in the future will they be available on other continents?

Maybe you mentioned it somewhere, but how long will the barrier trials be available? I'm trying to decide how to plan my training program and have a few that I would like to send to the barrier trials, but don't want to completely miss the chance if I procrastinate on entering them. Thx!

I'm trying to grasp how this works. I thought the idea was that a single player races his or her own horses against each other, for all the benefits, per the FAQ. But now it looks as many as six players can enter a horse is a single barrier trial.

To quote the FAQ:
"For 500 Game Points per entry, these mini-races pit player's young horses against each other"

I bolded player's because I think the apostrophe needs to be moved to after the s, if multiple players can participate in the same race.

For that matter, is there a limit to how many horses a single player can enter in these races? It looks like two, because I have two horses in a trial and can't enter any more.

We also need a field added on the Search page to filter for trial races.

I'll update the apostrophe right now. Yes, the limit is two per race (it's like a race).

The search page has had a filter since before the rest went live - it's under "Type" (like flat, bumper, steeplechase, and now barrier trial).

Is it ideally meant to be like workout distances? So 3f for sprinters, 4f for milers, and 5f for routers? I know you can enter whichever one you like but is that where the idea comes from, basically a workout in company?

2 horses per player per race with a max of 6 entries doesn't leave room for everyone to participate =( the 5F Dirt trial is maxed from what i saw.

They split like regular races, just keep entering.
