Anything Goes / Horse Racing Card Game
« on: January 12, 2018, 05:29:44 pm »
Hey everyone! I have a question. I've recently been working on developing a horse racing card game. Would anyone be opposed to me using the names of our FF horses? I know some of the names used on here are pretty generic, but some are also pretty noteable, like Foolhardy or Alley Cat. I can make up names if I need to, but thought it might be fun to sort of immortalize our FF ponies. Anyway, let me know what you think. Thank you!

Questions / Race Entry Issue
« on: March 25, 2016, 08:46:37 pm »
So, I have a mare who is 4 years old and ran in a 4yo+ claimer earlier this month. Today I tried entering her in another 4yo+ claimer and she isn't showing up on the list of eligible horses at all. Is this a glitch, or is there some sort of limit to what kind of claimers different horses can be entered into?

Finally have some results worth talking about.

He's Her Knight (3yo, Double Cross) in an Allowance
Sunset Boulevard (3yo, TakeMeToHollywood) in a NW1 Allowance

Also Rans:
Dreamfield (3yo, Created) 14th in a maiden

This hasn't been my most successful year so far, but hopefully this means my horses are getting back into the groove of things.

I've been debating whether or not to post here since I don't have nearly as big a crop as some of you, but I finally figured, ah, what the heck, might as well.

Have had 2 born so far this year, both fillies.

First was Glass Belle by ICh. Belanso (S) x All Those Glasses on Jan. 30. Her mama is stakes placed (2nd in the 2014 Saratoga Breeders' Cup) and has 3 speed records, so I'm hoping for a good career with this little girl.

Second is Simply Flirtatious by NCh. Player (S) x Minute in Gigi (a GCh. Simply Heroic girl) this morning, Feb. 2.

Have a total of 9 left to go. Next one is due 2/7, so we'll see where we go from here.

Questions / Breed Rankings Question
« on: January 23, 2016, 02:18:03 pm »
Ok, so I apologize in advance if this has come up before, but I searched the forums and didn't find anything.

I've been playing this game for a few years now, and I was wondering exactly how breed ranking is determined for broodmares. I've read the FAQ and all the forum posts I could find on it, but I still don't get it. I know that it has to do with a points system and all that, but it doesn't make sense to me that you can have one mare with a silver ranking who only has 2 foals - one a winner, the other unraced - and yet have another mare with no breed ranking and 5 foals - winners, SW winners, placers, and unraced. Is there a reason behind this?
