Oh hi, I'm back (maybe?)

Post by Madelene Gilbert » 3 weeks ago

So.... it's been a while since I've paid attention to the SIM. Lots of "life" happened in the last 2 RL years. :P

Thank you to everyone who messaged me over the many months. I might not have time to reply, but I appreciate you checking in with me! Unfortunately most of my messages have expired, but I'm happy to catch up if you send me a PM.

In an effort to reboot my stable, I'm selling off a BUNCH of my stock. They won't be worth much, since they're old and unraced (unfit, unnamed, etc.) but maybe they'll find a good home with people who can give them more attention. Here's the auction link.

I'm also *woefully* out of touch with the current state of AW affairs, so I'd appreciate any tips, news, updates, and anything else I should know about? Who's winning the G1s? Who are the big trainers? What stallions should I breed to? Help!

Welcome back!!! I'll do my best to get you caught up via PM. I'm glad that you have returned, even if it's in a limited capacity. The game is better off when you're here.

I certainly remember all you’ve done for the sim and am delighted you’re back! I do feel you shouldn’t restrict yourself to all weather...turf route wants your love!

Welcome back!

I'm super into Midnight Aria, Hot Dog, Good Samaritan, Mile After Mile, Mitole, Cracksman, and Avacas for AW milers/Routers. I also like Sottsass for turf/aw mile/route if you are looking to get into that area.

Welcome back! I don't think we've been in contact before, but I remember really looking up to you and hope you can get your barn going again and that you'll stick around :)

Well I'm happy to see that the majority of the sires I'm accustomed to have stuck around long enough for me to breed to (looking at you 12-14YO boys lol). I'm doing all right on cash; thanks to everyone who's been breeding to my stallions btw, you've keep me in the black! ;) I've also got a fair amount of talent left in the barn, so don't feel too bad for me. Here's hoping my 28 Blue Hen mares give me lots of nice babies. :lol: I won't have any good runners for a few years though, so I can say with confidence that Garrett will beat my total AW wins before I'm back to full strength. :mrgreen:

So happy to see you are returning in some form, Madelene!! AWR just hasn't been the same! Garret said he would update you; he is the man to do it!
