November 24th, 2020 [March Y43]
  1. Quick Match - There are now checkboxes on mares Genetics pages that are the foundation of Quick Match, giving you the ability to tailor your searches to whatever genes you want to prioritize for each individual mare. Any gene not checked will not be included in your search. Any checked gene will be included within the parameters of search type.
  2. KISS - Will remain relaxed crosses, including distance and surface genes. If a Performance gene is selected, all stallions with Good or better will be included. All other core functions of KISS and Forever KISS remain the same as in previous years in regards to Performance Merits, Peak, and so on.
  3. Standard and Forever - Will provide more ideal results, only including stallions who are Excellent or better in all selected Performance genes. This also applies to distance and surface genes. (If you want to include intermediate distance or semi-surface studs, untick distance and/or surface boxes.) All other core functions of Standard and Forever searches remain unchanged.
  4. Horse Trader - Any horse purchased from the HT will now come with Morale, Distance Proficiency, and Surface Proficiency high enough to begin training and racing immediately.

November 21st, 2020 [February Y43]
  1. Grooming - Grooming is now a training option for racing horses who are not yet saddle trained. This will allow you to groom and attempt saddle training within the same month.
  2. Yearling Groundwork - t now has a chance to raise any stat and can improve different stats each month. However, the maximum a stat can improve to from Groundwork is 3 - and yearlings may not reach 3 on any/all stats by the time they age up.
  3. Producer Quality - Producer Quality can now be tested from the Genetics page of pensioned horses. Horses are only eligible for this method of testing if they are: pensioned, at least 20 years old, and owned by their breeder. Horses without a breeder are never eligible. This Producer Quality test costs $2,000,000 or 200 PC for males and $1,000,000 or 100 PC for females.
  4. Bloodline Mutations - Bloodline Mutations can now be tested from from their Genetics page. Horses are eligible to test if they are pensioned or have at least 10 foals on the ground. The ‘Mutation Test’ costs $1,000,000 or 100 PC for males and $500,000 or 50 PC for females.

November 19th, 2020 [February Y43]
  1. Foal Slots - Stallions are no longer born with foal slots unless they are Stock or Standardbred (which are born with 5). When a colt retires, he will have either 5 or 15 slots awarded based upon points. If he earned 50 racing points he receives 5 slots; if he earned 100 racing points (Performance Merit) he receives 15 slots. These are in addition to the 5 slots STB and stock start with. Considering baseline slots, SIP bonuses, and item bonuses, and possible CoS reward, the maximum possible slots for Thoroughbred and Goldblood stallions is now 38 and the maximum for Standardbred and Stock is 43. This does not include AI straws, which can be drawn regardless of a stallion's limit.
  2. Legacy and Victor's Blades - now award a set number of slots rather than a random amount that can sometimes feel unfair. Legacy now adds 3 slots up to a maximum of 25 slots. Victor's Blade now adds 5 slots up to a maximum of 30 slots. Legacy is also now awarded free to any horse who earns Performance Distinction (250 points), rather than giving them 1 extra foal slot.

November 17th, 2020 [February Y43]
  1. Surface Aptitude - Surface proficiency will now decline at each month's rollover, just like distance proficiency. Surface also now mirrors distances in breeding in terms of impact on stats. Horses with no Strong aptitude will suffer small penalties to their stats, while horses with no aptitude at all (dd tt) will be impacted more severely.

November 14th, 2020 [January Y43]
  1. Distance Training - Horses will now gain proficiency at the distance you train as well as neighboring distances. At each month’s rollover, all horses will lose proficiency at different rates depending upon their distance genes.
  2. Proficiency Bar - The proficiency bar (on Horse page) and star (on Exercise page) colors. With the inclusion of a new grey color, there are now 4 categories of training a horse can fall into: grey - 0-24% (Poor), red - 25-49% (Fair), yellow - 50-74% (Average), green - 75-100% (Excellent). Although green is most ideal and will reward your horse with the best PR in races and no chance of injury, yellow-range proficiency is acceptable with insignificant chance of injury. Entering races at distances where a horse has red or grey proficiency should generally be avoided.
  3. Distance Aptitude - There has been a small tweak to how horses inherit their favorite distances.
  4. Style Proficiency - There is a new bar for horses Style Proficiency, for each style: Frontrunner, Midpack, and Closer. Horses improve their proficiency in a style when performing buddy workouts or entering races. It will determine how much style bonus they receive in races. Unmaxed horses have a chance to gain bonus stats when training based upon their style proficiency. Style proficiency never contributes to injury risk. There is nothing wrong with entering a horse who has 0% (or otherwise low) proficiency. Although their PR may suffer.
  5. Track & Trail Rides - Track Rides now improve a horse’s Experience while Trail Rides a horse’s Rest.
  6. 2YOs - All exhaustion penalities have been removed however 2YOs now require more energy to train, including first intervals or gate training. The only training options that remain ‘free’ for the first training of the month are Maintenance and Saddle Training.

The new HT series race divisions will be kicking off in Thoroughbred Gems and Trinities this year for both sexes, on both surfaces, in both America and Europe.
