9 years of playing and I had no idea this was a thing.

Andy - You can always just back track and check those days. And if a horse is injured their training schedule is removed so they don't risk working while injured. That's usually how I find out if I didn't catch it on the main page (or their name simply being red on the actual workouts page).

If an email option is added, I would prefer it to be that: an option. Nearly-daily emails for 50+ horses worked would drive me batty. I just check periodically, see how their comments have been, update race setting if anything new has come up (ex: running on the lead), when was there last race, and enter or keep working from there. Or send home if the jockey keeps having his pants ripped off. ;)

I agree I can do that but when there is over 300+ in the stable and if you don't check every day .... you get my drift. I'd love to be able to filter by ages etc, so I could just see my say 2yr olds or 3yr olds or even SC etc.

It would be like a print out from the stable foreman reporting in.

Obviously it would be an option FWIW.

Sometimes if you don't log on for a day or so you can miss that there has been injuries etc and with the daily notifications you could quickly sent a horse back to the farm or adjust a horses equipment, running position for it's next work out if the jock advises.

Thoughts?

I thought I explained that pretty well.

Also being in a different time zone is problematic.

I had a bit of a lightning moment today  8)

As many of us have lots (lots!) of horses, it becomes quite hard to keep track of them and their training, would it be possible to have an automated e-mail sent after the stable has worked each day with a print out of each horses work outs?

Cheers Shanthi,

I guess I'll just have to rest her and bring her back for the remaining 8 starts. Not many make it back from bowed tendon's though!

General/Questions / Injuried Mare?
« on: July 17, 2017, 11:52:38 am »
Hi Shanthi,

I came across one from left field today, a mare that I claimed (6 year old) during her first start injuried herself (bowed tendon) after her 2nd start.

I thought seeing she was 6 I'd retire her to the breeding barn but worked out as she hadn't had 10 starts she's ineligible  :-\ Obviously by the rules she can't be bred with but I don't think the rules took into consideration 6 year old first starters!

Thoughts?

Fingers crossed he turns out like some of his siblings.
