I didn't realize FF gave out birthday presents.   :o
I saw my stable budget today and figured it was a glitch, so I went to investigate so I could report it.
Thanks, Shanthi!  It was definitely a nice surprise!

Thanks, guys.   :)
I had a wonderful birthday.
My friends threw me a BBQ, then we all went out to celebrate Sat night.  Then I did the family thing at home I got the best of both worlds.   :D

General/Questions / Re: Famous Stud Reshuffling?
« on: March 29, 2007, 08:27:42 PM »
I voted for currently standing-at stud stallions, but was going to say that I honestly wouldn't mind either way since they ARE separate from RL horses in that the best aren't necessarily the best.  I'm all for realism, plus I think it would help members who aren't up-to-date on today's top stallions get motivated to learn a bit more about the racing world.  Names like Secretariat & Man O' War are already well known enough & likely to show up in generated pedigrees anyway - adding some new RL studs would add some variance, I think.

But now that you've mentioned that the "old" RL stallions would stay indefinitely & are listed as being 90 years old or whatever (I hadn't realized that, being new to the game & without any breeding stock so far), then I'm even more in support of switching to stallions who are currently standing at stud in RL.

I know - spring has just broken out here at home with some LOVELY sunshine-filled weather.  Isn't it nice??
That means it's a good day to wash & wax the car - it's been due for a good cleaning all winter!

Hopefully you'll be accepted soon - that "estimated join date" is awfully intimidating.
At least, though, you've got plenty of time to get used to how the game works.  Makes it easier to be successful once you DO get started.   :)

Ooh, congrats.  Have fun!
Never been to Vegas myself.  I'm envious.   :)

Also, there is no way to gauge Natural Energy like you can gauge Energy/Fitness - you're supposed to just watch for a dramatic performance drop or the comment about the jockey, because it will be more case you were wondering.   :)

Relaxing at the farm is the only way to remedy it, I believe.

I know - I realized that after I'd gone to bed.
For some reason I was thinking that picks were due Wednesday and Friday nights by midnight EST, and I was thinking I was way early.   ::)  I went ahead & left them up, though, so I could check to see how I did as I used a different method this time around (worked on them throughout the day, so I actually spent a lot more time than usual...which is all the more frustrating, because I could easily have been done with them by early afternoon had I really buckled down & not been mistaken on the due dates...I kept running off to do other random, unimportant things instead).

Thanks for paying attention, though, in the event that I hadn't noticed it.   :)

Thank you so much for the new coding!  The alerts on voting status are helpful, and I saw that you added the track location to the race name after all.  It makes voting decisions SO much easier, so thank you!

Annual 2yo Auction / Re: How'd You Do?
« on: March 05, 2007, 09:49:15 PM »
New to the game, I was all set to force myself to not be picky and get the 3 cheapest horses I could...  Boy, was I surprised to end up with 2 fillies  :o and the colt I had my heart set on, each for $1,000...

Kiasport - Red chestnut filly.  Love her name, although it makes me think of the car brand...  Should she run well & wind up as a broodmare, oh, what fun I shall have naming her offspring using tidbits of her name...

Santiago Roja - Red chestnut filly.  Went based on her name (it sounds so exotic) & that she was a filly with no bids yet, not quite caring what color/etc.  I was surprised to see I'd wound up with another red chestnut, so we have "twin" 2YO fillies now.   :P

Swingshift - Strawberry roan colt.  I think his name has the most wonderful ring to it (rolls right off the tongue).  Getting a roan boy was just a bonus!

They're my first purchases in the game.  I can't wait to see how they fare.   :)  It was so hard to choose which horses to bid on, as there were so many quality horses there!  I'm just sure there are a couple I'll be kicking myself later for passing up on...but I'm hoping these 3 combined will earn more than enough to make up for it!

Shanthi, I had a curious question.
Is there any way that you could list the track location along with the race name for the suggested races/voting column?  It's certainly not a big deal, but it sure would make team race decisions a lot easier, I think.  Location does play a factor, afterall, with shipping costs & energy levels to consider.  Or am I a dummy and am already missing an easier way to view this info (besides looking up each suggested race individually)...?

Just curious.   :)
