Hidden Stats

What are Hidden Stats?
Hidden Stats are purchased in a bulk Stablewide option, via Stable Upgrades in the Pro Shop for Pro Coins. This purchase not only gives this to every horse you currently own, but all horses that ever come into your stable. These will appear on the horse's page in the Stats section.

Hidden Stats will include a specific number for each stat as well as potential and (once maxed) birth max potential. The numerical stats will appear under the colored stars you get from the Traits Expert. More information on these perks is explained below.
Stat Numbers
Each number shows how a horse rates in each individual stat. If it is bold, it means that stat is maxed, meaning it can no longer improve. For instance, if a horse has a bolded 4 for Acceleration, that means Acceleration will not improve any further. If a horse has an unbolded 4 for Acceleration, that means Acceleration can still improve with the proper form of training.

If bold numbers are hard for you to distinguish, you may change this in your stable Settings to display as underline or bold and underline instead.
Potential is a number which tells you the current sum of all of a horse's 6 base stats. If your horse has just been born, it will usually have a potential of 6 unless you have a skill that sometimes allows foals to start out with higher stats. A young horse's potential will go up as they get older and improve through training unless they have a low enough maximum potential that they were born maxed.

A horse with a low potential may or may not be a bad horse in the long run, because it may just need some training to improve. Bear in mind that this figure is called Potential because it is just that - a potential estimate of how well your horse may run. Many horses do not run as well as they potentially could, due to other factors in races. On the other hand, many horses perform better than their potential would suggest. Potential is not definitive of a horse's abilities and is just one indicator of talent.
Birth Max
Your Hidden Stats also allow you to see a horse's birth max, or the maximum potential they had at birth. This will only show up when a horse is fully maxed and, in most cases, a horse's max matches their birth max. The only cases in which it does not match is if a horse has improved their birth max through things such as gelding, Oracle, or buddy workouts. A horse's current max will also be different from their birth max if they have been transitioned to Steeplechase or Driving.

A birth max is not incredibly important to pay attention to, but can be a good indicator when studying breeding. It's nice to know how bad (or good) a colt would have been if he hadn't been gelded - after all, the birth max is the number that matters in calculating a horse's Average Foal Potential (AFP). You may see a 50 potential gelding from a stallion and think that's great, only to realize his birth max was 15 (not so great). In addition, it allows you to see the true quality of a horse who has been fed Oracle so that Oracle cannot mask bad producers/bad birth stats.
Below are a few examples of how Hidden Stats may look in different situations. Irrelevant information (not included with this upgrade) has been blocked out for clarification - you'll still see Trained Distances and Genetic Aptitude on a horse's page!

This horse is unmaxed. Since the horse is unmaxed in versatility, rating, and acceleration, given the current stars we can see, the chances of this horse finishing in the high 40's low 50's is high!

This horse is fully maxed (all bold stats) and is lucky enough to be a Peerless (60 potential). You notice here that the current max matches the birth max (the 60 shown in parenthesis). The horse was destined to be Peerless from birth and nothing 'artificial' has been used to achieve this potential.

Like the horse above, this one is fully maxed. Every stat is bold and the potential is bold. However, the currently maxed potential of 38 does not match the birth max of 16. In this case, you see an Oracle wand next to the birth max, indicating that the horse has been fed Oracle at least once. This horse is not a gelding and is not transitioned to Steeplechase, so we can assume the entire difference between birth max and current max is due to feeding Oracle.

This is another horse who is fully maxed. It is also a horse whose current potential is higher than its birth max. In this case there is no wand, meaning the horse has not been fed Oracle. This horse is actually a gelding still running flat races, so we can assume his potential improved a few points due to gelding.

In the final example, we see another fully maxed horse. This horse improved upon being transitioned to steeplechase. However, horses that have a lower aptitude for steeplechase may lose potential. The only way this can happen, which can be confirmed by looking at the horse's info, is through Steeplechase transition. In this case, the horse was a 29 potential before steeplechase and improved to 52! Even if your horse loses potential transitioning to SC it does not reflect on the parents' producing ability and pulls directly from your horse's jump gene. If the jumping gene is Above Average you should match for steeplechase foals, if they are Below Average they should not be bred for steeplechase.

Goldblood stallions are temporarily eligible to test for Producer Quality if they are: 100% Goldblood, retired, and not Cloaked. Testing fees for Goldbloods during this period are reduced to $500,000 or 50 PC. Although mares can benefit from discounted fees, normal testing restrictions still apply.
