That's all really interesting.

(No way it's coming to FF, though, just thinking about it makes my brain hurt, let alone adding logic to the game. I know you weren't suggesting that, but just to be clear.)

It made my brain hurt figuring out the RL setup, lol. Luckily FF operates in a magical world where everything is the same season, there's no quarantine, and it's years in the future.  ;)

Jack O'Lantern, and SW's Ch. Marilyn Monroe and Ch. Trick Or Treat. Named after Ray Bradbury. Midnight Return will visit Demand the Best for 2023.

Honestly not sure. I know for the Dubai World Cup carnival they specifically say southern hemisphere horses must be X age and northern hemisphere X age to account for the difference.

UAE Derby (UAE-G1) Qualification:
3-year-olds from the Northern & 4-year-olds from the Southern Hemisphere

So I imagine those in the southern hemisphere must be 1 year "older" than American horses to compete in age-specific races, rather than 1 year younger. So a 3yo in Australia would be classified as a 4yo in America to account for southern hemisphere horses being born much later in the northern hemisphere racing season. If a 3yo-restricted USA race comes along, southern hemisphere horses must be considered a 4yo down under as a way to give them extra growth months.

I had to really draw that out for it to make sense in my own brain, lol.

I'm so glad everyone has been enjoying these!

We really liked 4th/5th at allowance or higher. And it seems like I have several older mares who gave me false hope last Nov/December and have decided nope, not working for us. Maybe retire. Maybe not. Going to keep you guessing and spending money in hope of a top 3.

Better but not great.

10-2-2-0-3 $34,600

Roman Crow (3yo, Joyeux Oiseau) in a maiden.
Siege (3yo, In The Navy) in a claiming race and stays home.

Zombie Train (3yo, Dr. Evil) in an Allowance.
Addicting News (3yo, Yes It's Paddy) in a NW1 Allowance.

Cagun Rock (4yo, Rock of Gibraltar) in a NW3 Allowance.
Harken (3yo, Worth The Wait) in a NW1 Allowance.
Successfully claimed Wary Hope (3yo, Dark Demand) in a claiming race. I thought I had read he was in the 5k claimer, not the 20k, so...oops. Oh well! I liked his damline and he's half to 2 SW's from as many runners, so maybe he'll at least make back the price tag.

Also Rans:
Murciélago (4yo, Empire Maker) 8th in an Allowance.
Warsprite (3yo, First Born Son) 6th in an Allowance.
High Proof (4yo, Unabridged) 7th in an Allowance.
