I'm sure some of the early studs were qualified as 2yos, since you only needed 7SW at the time. Don't think we've had any under the current requirements though.

Congratulations Wolfhound!

And Shanthi, I think that would be my entire racing string haha.

It's less than 1/3 of my string! I need to sell off a ton, but...I want to hoard all the ponies.

Also, congrats @Wolfhound! Well done. :)

I hope he has a long and happy retirement - sorry you didn't get more breedings out of him before he had to retire.

Questions / Re: Question About Natural Energy
« on: August 26, 2018, 07:01:09 pm »
Horses should be able to go from 0 to 100 natural energy in 20-60 days. I think there's also a bottom limit on how low NE can go (I don't remember if it's -50 or -100, but it's not negative infinity).

Questions / Re: Breeders' Series Question
« on: August 21, 2018, 07:31:31 am »
So, I've been going over all the old posts regarding the Breeders' Series, and I'm still just a tad confused. So, I understand that both the Breeders' Cup and the Breeders' Series require nominations in order for horses to race in them, despite still showing up in the schedule search after checking the "does not require nomination" box. (Bug, maybe?)

Hm, yes, I think the search will still be going off the old collection of races that did require nomination (for the individual race, not a set of races). I'll see if I can fix that.

Quote
The Breeders' Cup is pretty easy to spot in the schedule, but am I understanding right that the Breeders' Stakes races at the end of the year are what make up the Breeders' Series? I noticed nominations for that set of races are required to be submitted in January, and that it seems to only refer to horses you've bred. So I'm guessing horses you didn't breed and who haven't been nominated by their breeders are just out of luck?

Pretty much. You have to rely on the breeder to have nominated your horse's crop at the start of the year. (Note: FF does not nominate, so any FF-bred horses are automatically not qualified.)

Annual Select Auction / 2022 Horses Consigned
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:31:49 pm »
Final Furlong hrses have been consigned. Bidding starts on Sept 1. :)

The script is pretty basic and set everyone's reserve price to be the same. This has no bearing on the (perceived) quality of the horse.
