There's a lot more planning and effort that goes into this game than into others. Final Furlong is run in real time, despite the year being in the future. The FAQ page is your friend, and anything you can't find on there can probably be found by searching the forums. Training your horses is important, and giving them rest at your home farm every few months or so is critical. Like real horses, FF horses need time between races, and they have jockeys and equipment they like and dislike. Keeping records of their successes and failures will help a lot. Everyone does that differently (I have a variety of Excel sheets on Google Docs that track everything from the best times run in races to my horses' parents' maturing patterns), so it'll be up to you to figure out what works and what doesn't. You can breed horses from the start, but bear in mind that breeding is expensive, so having a team of good runners is important. I've nearly sunk myself several times due to buying/breeding way too much. Also, due to the way the game is run, there's only so much you can do in a day/week/month/year, so patience is important.

Very interesting. I'll have to show this to my husband. He's always entertained by the horses with Star Trek names here.

Halfway through the trial deck I'm creating so I can start testing the game's playability. Got a bit behind because of wedding/honeymoon/family ending up in the hospital/etc, but I'm hoping to be able to actually try out the game mechanics soon.

Last of the late babies has hit the ground. And of course it would be another filly. XD

Macha
ICh. Dark Continent (S) x Gallant Lassie - NCh. Boldness Shows (B)
9.1h chestnut filly
Feeling a little uninspired with names recently, but figured this would do for now. Macha is one of the three Morrigna (war goddesses) in Irish folklore. From Wikipedia: "Like other sovereignty goddesses, Macha is associated with the land, fertility, kingship, war and horses."
