Questions / Re: Final Furlong Owned Horses
« on: December 09, 2018, 03:40:08 pm »
Thanks Shanthi for the info! It's greatly appreciated!  Generally what time of year is the mix of everything auction so I may keep an eye out for it?  Also if the conditions are favorable to make a request, how should I contact you to make the request?  Its the just the one mare and 4yo F I would be requesting, is that acceptable or should I pick one or the other?

thank you!

At the moment it's just via PM on the forum. (I have an item on my mental to-do list to add a button to the horse page to allow it to be flagged for auction consideration, but that's not done yet.)

Re: your request in particular, it would depend on what mare/foal they are. Perhaps the mare would go in the mixed auction and the 4yo in the Select, or vice-verse. Or it may just end up being one of them that goes into an auction.

You can request that a horse be consigned to the main FF-held auctions. (There are 4 every year: 2yos only, mix of everything, high quality horses that have reserve pricing, and the weanling/yearling auction that's currently happening.)

n.b. your best bet on this happening is 1) if the auction has already been created 2) if FF horses haven't already been consigned. also, please be sensible and don't ask for a dozen horses to be consigned, and bear in mind that the goal for FF horses in auction is a nice mix of ages/bloodlines/etc so I won't just add a broodmare and all her foals, or a bunch of horses by the same sire, etc. Thanks!

General/Questions / Re: Breeders' Series 2022 Qualifiers

Hey Shanthi, I'm trying to enter Amati into the Breeder's Series race for 4yo+ ponies. He's qualified (#7 on the list), but he's not an option to enter. Seduction who is an alternate, on the other hand, is. Would you mind looking into this?

Amati is available to enter...by Sakura Springs, his owner. ;-)

I feel like the lists are off...I'm fairly certain most of my homebred ponies were nominated, but none (except Spamalot, who was nominated by his breeder) are showing on the lists.  For instance, 2yo MSW filly Launch Sequence on the 2yo Dirt Fillies.  Am I just mis-remembering how qualifications work?

Unfortunately it looks like you didn't nominate for this year (if you go here: https://www.finalfurlong.org/stablebs.php it shows "Nominations Closed" instead of "Already Nominated").

Poet’s Word is a grandson of Dubawi, would it have to be one or the other?

I'd have to look at the full list we end up with but usually it's only a swap-out if it's father/son or there are 3+ closely related horses in the voting

I don't mind Gun Runner's connections since Candy Ride was active in FF for only one season.

This is now updated, and should be fixed so that it auto-updates going forward. (I know I've said that before with the Breeders' Cup, though...)

How'd You Do? / Re: 10/3
« on: October 04, 2018, 08:37:49 am »
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).
