POLL: Pick 10 famous stallions for FF in 2018
« on: October 30, 2013, 10:14:38 pm »
So, we'll try this out and see how it goes as one big poll.

Pick up to 10 famous studs for FF to use in 2018.

The following studs will retire in 2018 as they were not used much this year: Tiznow, War Chant, Smart Strike

The following new stallions were suggested in the thread (http://www.finalfurlong.org/forum/index.php?topic=9005.0):
Al Kazeem
Animal Kingdom
Getaway
Musketier
Skipshot

If you don't want to add any new studs, limit your votes to existing studs. If you want to add new studs, bear in mind that it will mean losing some studs that are currently standing (at least 3 are guaranteed to go anyway to get us down to 10).

Any questions, please ask.

Can you tell a little about how are these real-life studs created? I'm curious how Skipshot's inbreeding to Princequillo could influence his offspring in game ;) but, he doesn't have any real-life foals so who knows what his ancestors can do for them... and I assume that Musketier would probably sire stayers...

Here Skipshot compared to Musketier:

They're created pretty crudely. I look up their racing history to get a sense of what they should be like stats-wise, apply some random numbers, and there you go.

Skipshot's inbreeding to Princequillo would not be included in the game as Princequillo is not in the game. (Even if it were, FF checks for inbreeding doesn't go that far back.)

So looks like of the new stallions only Animal Kingdom would join? ;) And he's related to Musketier - Animal Kingdom's damsire Acatenango is Musketier's sire :)

Nice!

Based on the poll results, the famous stallions available in 2018 will be:

Frankel (15)
Ghostzapper (14)
Sea the Stars (12)
Animal Kingdom (11)
Invasor (11)
Rock of Gibraltar (11)
Giant's Causeway (10)
Deep Impact (9)
Monarchos (9)
Point Given (9)
Sun King (9)

The following stallions would retire:
Candy Ride
Empire Maker
Silver Charm

I think we should do this same vote every year, provided people want to keep adding new stallions.

Cool. Sorry to be picky though - the RL version is chestnut.

Fixed! Put the right numbers in the wrong boxes (which explained why he was originally a retired stallion).
