2017 Requests
« on: September 28, 2013, 08:14:18 pm »
This was done via a script, so any requests for specific horses to be added were not handled. Eventually, the beta will allow you to request a horse be considered for consignment, which the script will take into account.

Does this mean that you (Shanthi) don't have the ability to manually add horses to these Auctions?

Presumably you will be using this (probably already have) to select which foals will be added to the Annual Foal Auction in December?

The reason I ask is that there are a couple of FF-owned Foals that aren't consigned to this Auction that I would love :D ;D to see added:-
Dancing Smash, a yearling filly by Sixth Day out of Trafalgar.
Unnamed weanling colt by Boldness Shows, also out of Trafalgar.
Unnamed weanling colt by Magic Glory out of Alydar's Frolic.

The first two because they are out of a Mare we just bought and the third one is by one of our Stables Sires.

No, it means I don't have the time (hence spending time to automate it). It amounts to the same thing, though.

FWIW, I wouldn't add two half-siblings anyway.

Perhaps you'll get lucky and the script will pick some of them - I'll run it closer to the date.
