|Eligibility For Color Shows|
|The ability to enter eligible horses into color shows unlocks with the 9th Training Star on the skill tree. Once you’ve unlocked that star, then it’s time to enter color shows! Horse eligibility has a bit more to it. First, a horse must be a color from one of the following color families: Cream, Roan, Dun, Silver and/or Champagne. Further information on eligibility and restrictions can be found below:||Eligibility Restrictions|
• Grey horses who possess one of the previously mentioned colors may only enter color shows as yearlings.
• Chestnuts who carry the silver gene may not enter color shows.
• Maximum Sabino (fully white coat) may not enter color shows.
• Double dilute Creams (Cremello, Perlino and Smokey Cream) horses may only enter Cream classes - regardless of other colors they may possess.
• Horses with less than 50% condition may not enter color shows - with the exception of Yearlings (they have no condition eligibility restrictions - but condition still affects their score).
• Injured horses may not enter color shows.
• Horses must be named to enter color shows.
• Stallions may not enter color shows during breeding season (February-June).
• Broodmares may not not enter color shows for 8 months following their second pregnancy check-up.
|How To Enter and Class Information|
First, you should go to your horse’s “Manage” page. There you will find a button under “Color Statistics” that says Opt In. Use this button to give your horse the option to enter Color Shows. If the horse has no button there, but it states “Locked In” your horse has already been “Opted In” to Color Shows. If there is no button and it states “Not Eligible” - it means your horse isn’t a coloration that can enter Color Shows.
Next, go back to your horse’s main page. You will find a table there called “Color Statistics”. This will display Coat Condition, results, earnings and points from Color Shows and the horse’s average score, best score and average Coat Condition.
Using the Find A Show button, you can enter your horse into as many classes as they are eligible for. Color classes do not take energy. There is no downside to entering a horse into color shows while simultaneously racing it.
You may enter multiple horses per class. Entry fees are ascending: the first horse you enter into a class cost $10,000. Each additional entry into the same color class cost an additional $20,000. So, your first entry is $10,000, second entry is $30,000, third entry is $50,000 etc.
Color shows are published at the start of each meet, and run at the end of each meet - just like races! This means during Off Season they occur once per month, and during regular season, they occur twice per month - Meet A and Meet B.
Classes are split in a few different ways. First, they are split by breed. Each breed (Thoroughbred, Goldblood, Quarter Horse, Paint Horse and Standardbred) has it’s own classes. Secondly, it’s split by status: Yearling, Racing and Retired. (Pensioned horses cannot show.) Thirdly, they are split by Select Lineage. Horses with 50% or higher Select Lineage compete in classes with other Select Horses. Lastly, they are split by sex: all three sexes (colts/stallions, fillies/mares and geldings) have their own classes. The exception is Yearling colts and geldings compete together.
