I had a freak go to allowance LOL and that's not even the weirdest thing. I have multiple horses that somehow improved from Allowance to Stakes*

*Yes I galloped them after the mid year change.

Sadly he was demoted to Stakes from Freak

I saved this name for a Freak, and lol, he get's changed to Stakes. Not sad, but kinda funny. He still has a 44.87 for 4f dirt, which seems like Freak quality.

Oh dear.... I might be wrong about when the adjustment takes place, maybe they already changed...... looking now.

Why are so many galloped horses showing "Unknown" in the improve column now?

Here are the links

Freak to allowance ----> https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1174165 This looks like it happened at mid-year, I didn't gallop her after that but these next two I did.
Allowance ----- Stakes - https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1204124 and https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1190868 this one I even galloped after his second start so really not sure how he got better.

Rhys and Voyage are now Stakes gallopers.

Also, I had a 3yo TR filly who went from Stakes to Freak but have no fear, she still is a maiden :D lol

My formerly freak yearling, who is top 3 in yearling filly 5F workout times (within 2/100ths of the top), sadly no longer a freak.
