Racing - Main

 

Welcome to ABC Racing.

 

 

 

This page will be our central location for all things having to do with racing. You can find links here for everything from owning a track to registering your silks.

 

Also located on this page will be links to all the information and forms that you will need regarding our racing rules. It is our goal to make your racing experience as fun as possible, while maintaining standards that keep our races fair and equal for everyone.


Qualifying Levels...

 

 

 

A horse may enter a race at its Qualifying Level (QL) or at one level below its QL.

 

By clicking on the Horses Stat button in the horse’s menu, you will find two numbers.

 

The Genetic QL

The Training QL

 

Sprint: Genetic QL: 4 Training QL: 3

 

 

Therefore, this horse would only be able to participate in a QL3 race until it has additional training that changes its Trained Index (TI) to a QL:4. Then it would be able to enter a QL4 race, which is the maximum QL for this particular horse.

 

NOTE: This horse may NEVER enter a QL2 (or lower) race or a QL5 (or higher) race due to its Genetic QL being a QL 4.

Jockey Class Dates

 

It’s the time you all have been waiting for… Jockey Classes!!

The following list is the dates/times for our upcoming Jockey Classes. This is just the list for this week more dates will be added, so if there is a date/time that isn’t good for you DON’T PANIC there will be many more classes offered.

 

✫ Please check the ABC calendar for current classes.

 

Please understand that the classes are on a first come/first serve basis and the sim will be set to a limit of 75 people. You must have voice on in order to be able to hear the lecture. Finally you must arrive on time; once the attendance for the class has been taken those are the only tests that will be graded.

Please make sure that you have registered on the website prior to attending class. Once again if we have a test but you’re not registered your test will not be graded and you must attend the class again after registering.


Length of Races...

 

 

The finish of each of our races is determined by how many times the horse crosses the finish line. The chart below shows each of our races, and how many times the horses must cross the finish line.
