Age Restrictions - Age restrictions have been removed from virtually all items.
Items for 2YOs - The following items, formerly age-restricted, may now be used on horses 2 and older: Thanksgiving Turkey, Blossom Tea, Snapshots, Sugar Cubes, Sunkissed Tart, Radiant Truffles, Kickstarter, Distance Dice, Carrots, Surf And Turf, Spiced Cider, Ice Wraps, Cozy Cocoa, Bundle of TLC, Mythos Scepter, Mineral Block, and Alfalfa Cubes. Additionally, Blossom Tea can now be used on horses up to 80% Maturity increase Maturity rather than setting the horse to a specific percentage. (It essentially functions as stronger Bloom without the side effects.)
Carrots - Carrots may only be used once annually.
Series Races - Distances for some TB/GB and QH/PH series races have changed. You can find a list of these updates on the Events page.
New Series Races - Midsummer Maturity, a Midsummer race for 4yo+ QH/PH, and Hill & Dale, a series race for Driving Trial horses.
October 12th, 2021 [November Y46]
Rank - Your Rank, with the exception of Diamond, is now based upon starts rather than points. Your rank will upgrade as follows: Novice - 100 starts; Amateur - 500 starts; Savvy - 1,500 starts; Master - 3,000 starts; Diamond - 50,000 points.
October 6th, 2021 [October Y46]

October 5th, 2021 [October Y46]

October 4th, 2021 [October Y46]
Stallion Grades - You can have your stallions inspected by visiting the Stallion Testing Center within Stud Services. Inspection is free and must be completed annually before a stallion can be listed for stud. Stallions can be rated grades A, B, C, D, or F (Fail), with A being the best. Stallions who Fail cannot be listed publicly, but may still be bred privately. Once tested, a grade icon will show on a stallion's page, in pedigrees, in the Stud Roster, and in Genotype Search results. A stallion's grade is a summarized assessment of his aptitude for producing strong racers. This looks at various factors including Producer Quality, key genetics, and producing record. Thus, a stallion's grade may improve or decline if his genetics are changed or if he has new foals. Breed is also considered, meaning there is a little more flexibility for QH, PH, and STB stallions. Stallions will automatically receive a Fail grade if: he is tested Below Average PQ, his AFP is below 20 (TB/GB only), both of his distance aptitude genes are Poor or Fair, or both of his surface aptitude genes are Recessive. Stallions with none of these qualifications may also receive a Fail grade if they have several other negative qualities. Grade also impacts a stallion's listing fee. Stallions who are A or B grade receive listing discounts while stallions who are D grade must pay a listing penalty fee. Assuming most of the stallions you're standing are A/B grade, this should result in significantly lower listing fees overall.
October 3rd, 2021 [October Y46]
Stud Packages - Stud Packages may now be purchased from the Genetics page of colts/stallions. This bundle will reveal: Stat Genes, Heritage, Peak, Prime, and Athleticism. Prices are based upon rank. If you already have stablewides, this does not concern you - it is just a way for players to invest in promising individuals without purchasing stablewides.

Gelding Incentives - Gelding incentive payouts have been increased significantly.
September 23rd, 2021 [August Y46]

Maintenance - A couple bugs with Maintenance stat gains have been fixed. Horses will now gain stats from Maintenance at the appropriate rate and stats improved will be listed in the successful training notification.
Vacation Pasture - A feature available to Pro players which can be used any time you need to take an extended break from the game where Stable Hands aren't sufficient. Vacation Pasture will immediately send all of your horses to pasture. You do not need official pasture space for this as it is not considered standard pasture. Once you've sent your horses to pasture, they will remain there for 3 to 12 game months. In other words, you can't retrieve them for at least 3 months and if you haven't retrieved them after 12 months they will return automatically. You can only use it once per game year, even if you only use it for 3 months.

Stable Hand is free for Forever Pro players. Pro players (not Forever) receive the 1st week free and pay the normal rate for the 2nd week. Otherwise, standard rates are 100 PC or $1,000,000 per week.
Color Shows - Color shows now award Breeding Passes. These are currently awarded at the same rate as they're awarded for race starts, but may be adjusted in the future. Breeding Passes have been retroactively awarded for all Y46 shows.
Broodmares - Broodmares not bred will lose Fertility in July. (In foal and covered mares count as 'bred'.) Mares who cannot be bred due to injury are exempt.

Energy - Energy has been reset to 100% and Condition to a minimum of 80%.
Travel Affinity - 2 year olds will now receive their Travel affinity advancement bonus if they ran at least 4 races. (3 year olds still require 10 total.)

Golden Apple Orchard - All broodmares are eligible for special trade-in at the Golden Apple Orchard. You will receive no rewards for using this limited-time option, so if a mare is eligible in the normal trade-in use it instead.
August 20th, 2021 [April Y46]
Broodmares - Broodmares not bred will lose Fertility in July. (In foal and covered mares count as 'bred'.) Mares who cannot be bred due to injury are exempt.
August 16th, 2021 [March Y46]

August 1st, 2021 [January Y46]
Golden Apple Orchard - The Golden Apple Orchard prizes have been rebalanced and include some new additions.
Suggested Stud Fee - Suggested stud fees have been adjusted to reflect recent changes in Development and Heritage. This is unlikely to result in significant changes for most horses, but may be important for some.
July 31, 2021 [January Y46]
Stat Caps - Yearlings may not exceed 2 in any stat, 2 year olds may not exceed 5, and 3 year olds may not exceed 8. Stat caps, like maxed stats, are indicated by blue stars and bold/underline stats on pages. Horses cannot improve a stat beyond the cap for their age, however, they may uncap as they age until they finally reach their max.
Training - 2 year olds and 3 year olds always use Energy for the first training of the month with the exception of Maintenance. 3 year olds, like 2 year olds, also use extra Energy when training.
Advancement - 2 and 3 year olds now have a hidden Advancement trait that helps horses perform better in races. Advancement is permanent once earned. Each race a young horse finishes adds 10% to their Advancement, meaning it will reach 100% after 10 races.

DQs and Refusals - DQ chances have been greatly reduced so DQs should mostly be limited to horses with 0-1 Consistency. You may occasionally see DQs from horses with 2-3 Consistency, while horses with at least 4 Consistency very rarely DQ. Training refusals have been increased slightly.
Apple Blossom Raffles - Apple Blossom raffles are similar to Select raffles, except they are composed only of retired mares and tickets can only be purchased with Golden Apples. These mares tend to have slightly lower genetic quality than Select horses (similar to Imports or Custom Goldblood) and are guaranteed to be at least Average producers. They also start with 7 foal slots.
Imports - Import prices have been reduced to: 2,000 PC (Master/Diamond), 1,500 (Amateur/Savvy), and 1,000 (Green/Novice). This does not include the initial browsing deposit.

June 29, 2021 [August Y45]

Amore Charm - There is a new version of Lace! You can view it in the Custom Previewer and can apply it through Amore Charms.
DAQ - DAQ has been updated as Dam Producer Quality (PQ) and the Far Above Average level was removed, shifting Above Average and Average slightly. We've also added Dam Genetic Quality (GQ) to better understand how genetics may be impacting a stallion's AFP. Finally, average Select % of foals has been added as another means of measuring the overall quality of mares a stallion has been bred to.

Zodiac Zeniths - Standardbreds are ineligible to enter Zodiac Zenith races they have previously won.
May 10, 2021 [Jan Y45]
Training Assistants - Training Assistant purse fees have been adjusted as reflected on the Tracks - Each region has two new tracks, rounding out to a total of 9 flat tracks per region.
2YO Performance Ratings - Horses who raced as 2 year olds will now carry over their best 2yo PR as Trinity preparation. This PR will count toward Trinity entry pools, ensuring successful 2 year olds have a strong chance at getting into Trinity races. It will also provide a small PR boost to their PRs in Trinity races.

Flourish - This Goldblood exclusive gene produces the colors known as Rose, Lilac, and Morpho, which show up on red-based, bay-based, and black-based horses respectively.

March 09, 2021 [Y44]
Risk - Risk impacts will be gradually increasing in races throughout the rest of this game year. Horses with high Risk may suffer consequences at monthly rollover. These will also be phased in incrementally throughout the rest of this year. Horses with high Risk may have a slightly harder time maintaining Condition. Horses with extremely high Risk (90%+) may lose Soundness.
Long Gallops - Can be used to both decrease Risk and increase Soundness. Please note that horses with low Maturity may still gain Risk from Long Gallops, though they may gain less than with other types of training.

Rest Fix - A bug which was causing some QH/PH/STB to gain Rest in races rather than losing has been fixed.
January 29, 2021 [Y43]
Performance Ratings - A major bug was discovered that hyperinflated Performance Ratings, all PRs were retroactively adjusted for the year to no longer exceed the mathematical maximum of 250. This in no way impacted placings in any races which had already run this year, but will help immensely with PR balance in terms of year end awards and lifetime PR records.
