Claiming Question
« on: January 21, 2005, 09:39:12 pm »
 Why is the claiming deadline

the same as the entry deadline? Isn't the incentive then to enter your horse as late as

possible so as to make claims impossible?
 Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

 Technically, yes, but few

people actually do that, and FF needs to be able to enter horses without them being claimed

since FF needs all the racehorses it can get, to use as filler horses.

 Read the newbie guide, it

has an in-depth explanation/tutorial on claiming.  (Not that I can vouch for its helpfulness,

but it got good reviews ;))
