Welcome to ABC Racing!

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. Below you will find basic racing information to help you get started.

 

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.

 

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.

Race Types:

Small Flat, Large Flat, Kaiila, Draft Pull, Sprint, Steeplechase, Horse Sulky, Pony Cart and Thoroughbred.
