Stats & Potential

Traits Expert
The traits expert will unlock the stars you see on horses' pages. These colored stars will tell you some information about your horse's Base Stats (listed below). 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.

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 cannot currently improve.
Base Stats
Base stats are the 6 main stats a horse has: Breaking, Early Speed, Rating, Versatility, Acceleration, and Late Speed. These display on horse pages in the Stats table if you buy either Trait Stars (the colored stars mentioned above) and/or Hidden Stats (exact numbers).

Even if you have Hidden Stats, unless you are Pro, you still must buy Trait stars for each horse you own for the numbers to show. If you have a Pro account, it will not be necessary, since they will automatically be shown for each horse you own. Each of these stats can range from 1-10 points, making a total possible "Potential" of 60 and the lowest possible potential 6. A 60 potential is also referred to as a Peerless horse.

Potential and style proficiency contribute to PR, these two together can make up a very large portion of your horse's PR. However, especially in horses with lower potential, other factors will actually have equal or more bearing into the PR than these do. The maximum possible PR is 250, so potential is certainly not the only important factor. In fact, in younger horses especially, it is not uncommon to see lower potential horses outperform higher potential horses for one reason or another.
Maximum Stats And Potential
A horse's maximum stats are determined at birth. Their original maximum potential is commonly referred to as their birth max. Through training, they will improve their current potential until they eventually max all of their stats. Intelligence determines how quickly a horse will learn stats from training.

There are some cases where a horse will automatically max. Horses aged 6 years old or older will automatically max upon any training, horses from the horse trader aged 4yo+ come with all maxed stats, and horses transitioned to SC who have run at least 5 MA races will automatically max as well.

For bred horses, you can read more on what affects birth max on Foal Potential. For horses who are purchased from the Horse Trader or Pro Shop (Created Goldbloods), stats are based directly on stat genes. Select Sale horses have stats that are mostly based directly on stat genes as well. As a yearling, groundwork will improve any stat up to a maximum of three, so 2yos will not necessary start as 6 potentials in January.

You can improve your horse's max stats via buddy working, gelding, and occasionally by buying a horse from the sales. Retired horses do not gain stats from being bought/sold.

Transitioning to Steeplechase or Driving Trials will give a horse an entirely new set of max stats, meaning that a horse can potentially have a vastly different (either higher or lower) max potential than the one they were born with if they’ve been transitioned. This means that in some cases a newly transitioned horse will have to spend time maxing their stats all over again.
