 And once that one foal does

do well, you can nominate your stud for future foal crops.  So only one or two foals would

get penalized for stud owner mistakes.  Not like you have to pick for your stud when he's a

weanling or anything :)

 I like Option 1 too. Just

thought I'd say that even though its already been decided ;) lol

Also, I've heard of

really good horses who weren't nominated as weanlings to the BC races being given the chance

to pay a supplemental fee(I think thats what its called) which is always VERY expenive-as in

$800,000 or so just to enter the race. But if their owner thinks they're good enough

some owners choose to gample the 800k. Maybe we could have that option?

 Yeah I see the point, option

1 is better for me seeing as I have the studs, the mares, and the racers! :P

 Okay so I'm going to show

my total lack of knowledge :P  What the heck is the big deal about cup races anyway? And I'm

not looking at theory here. To me if the stud is a dud (couldn't resist the rhyme :rolleyes:

) , and by that I really mean an inconsistant producer, I'm not likely to pay more for one

of his offspring because he maybe able to run in a cup race.  So

is there a giagaintic payoff that you can't get anywhere else or ...... just bragging rights

:)

 Well yeah the Cup races have

some of the biggest purses in the game with the Breeders Cup Classic purse being

$4,000,000.  It's deffinatly a huge thing if you win the Breeders Cup Classic and any

other Breeders Cup at that.
