Evaluating Surface & Distance
Once you have purchased Aptitude Genes for your horse, you will be able to see distance and surface genes on the horse's main page, Exercise page, and Genetics page. Aptitude Genes will give you key information to determine what surface and distance to train and race your horse on.

The types of runners and the distance related terms you will see other player's using in the game are - Router, Miler, and Sprinter. It is also possible to have a Versatile runner who does not have a range preference and can run at any distance. To guage distance, you'll want to look at the Speed & Stamina genes which will range from Poor-Outstanding. Good is typically middle range ie Miler, whereas Excellent/Outstanding means that the horse leans towards Sprint distances (E/O Speed gene), or Router distances (E/O Stamina gene).

Surfaces are either Dirt or Turf (STB: Dirt/Trot & Turf/Pace). Your horse will show one of three terms under these genes - Recessive, Moderate or Strong. It is entirely possible to show any possible mix of these indicators - a horse could be strong on one surface, on both or even not strong on either!

To sum up these genes - If I have a horse who has a Good Speed gene, an Excellent Stamina gene, a Recessive Dirt gene and a Strong Turf gene; this means my horse will prefer and be easily trained at Router distances on a Turf surface which in turn allows them to perform better in races.
Traits Expert
The traits expert will unlock the stars you see on most horses pages. These colored stars (or also numbers if you have purchased hidden stats) will tell you some information about your horse's stats in Acceleration, Breaking, Early Speed, Late Speed, Versatility, and Rating. Each stat will show either a grey or a blue star. Grey stars indicate that a stat is not yet maxed - meaning it has room to improve. Blue stars indicate that a stat is fully maxed - meaning it (currently) cannot improve. These stars can help you decide what types of training will most benefit your horse and, in some cases, what running style they may prefer.

Unmaxed offspring no longer count into a mare's AFP, which means she will need at least 3 maxed foals to show AFP.

We've been tweaking some economy balance things the past couple of weeks. These changes include adjustments to: tack prices, ultrasound & mare check-up fees, breeding pass suggested values & raffle cost, partnership payback, blood range costs (for Savvy & up), and suggested stud fees. There might be a few other little things here and there. All relevant pages (excluding Handbook) should reflect current updated costs/values.

Duplicate entries will be allowed in WCFs tomorrow for stables who had horses qualify in multiple regions. If that applies to you, hold off on retiring any second or third entries you may have!

Experience and Well Rested no longer show on horse pages. This is not vital information to know and over-complicates racing for the majority of players. While similar 'personality' traits will still impact races to some degree, this is not something you need to worry about when entering races.

If anyone has met the Copper Cog purchase requirement to access the special Discord channel and has not yet been given access to the channel, please message me on Discord to have your 'Cogsworn' status updated. I may have missed a few of you in the flurry of the past few weeks.

Rusty Recycler can now be fed every 15 minutes! For now, this change comes with no changes to how fast your meter fills or how often you receive Rumpled Packages. We hope this makes it easier for less active players to earn shiny rewards from Rusty. <3

Gelding now has an additional incentive! You will receive a monetary reward any time you geld a horse, provided he is not pensioned and, if retired, has at least 5 foal slots remaining, although their bonus will be reduced if they have less than 10 slots remaining. Gelding also rewards an additional $2,000,000 bonus to their base reward for each Select Sale parent.
