is it just me or do hold up horses seem to have little to no chance ??? have had little to no success with hold ups compared to even paced or handy runners just me or a general theme ??

Hold up horses struggle in my game but my US games courses are real tight short 6 furlong and so anything trying to run wide has little chance , think chester but twice as sharp. :D

Does anyone know how I can completely re-install the game now? I want no record of it at all on my computer, so the new download is like I just bought it. There's not a chance that me buying this game during a period of there not being any 100 potential horses isn't affecting me getting them now. Not 1 single 100 from hundreds of seasons buying 10's of thousands of horses.

I don't Know about it being a Monster has you guys know I am more a jump fanatic than flat so for me to try the greyhound racing in America is a rare change 5 Seasons in and my first 3 horses I bred are now 3yo with just this one looking worth a post FLINTY BAY as just won the Triple Crown its has a pure Group 1 Linage with both The sire and Mare Group 1 Winners I have the mare in Stud but I have learnt a lesson that I should breed all Mares with 1 sire has the Sire was only in the Stud for one Season Hopefully General Ting will come back but I will only have Group 1 Winning Mares breed with Flinty Bay and keep the linage Group 1 only.

I have found one 100% horse in my US flat game, actually I did not find it, I restarted the game thousands of times until one turned up, but he is crap and so is everything he has bred. I am 40 seasons in across 4 game stables, and whilst I quite enjoy just playing the game at my own pace I am nowhere near a league team, right now I would not even enter, maybe in a year or so I could fill a stable :)

I've now decided that I will no longer just be 'throwing darts' an breeding loads of crap mares with high potential an getting 100 yearlings a year. I'm giving up on 100 potential as I think that's probably not gonna be as important now, given no one will be able to perfect the background stats. I'm now just gonna breed very good game horses, get the lineages going for distances and hammer the CK.

I think stopping looking for 100% potential may quicken up my search too.

I've not hit the 100% yet, my best been 95%. But what i'm finding is you don't need them for CK horses. Seen some weird results while trailing horses in the CK. Just like earlier editions of the game, what you think are very average horses in the game mode turn out to be very good in the CK trails.

Does any of you have the same issue when trying to trail horses in another country my game crashes all the time. I'm i missing something here?

What else I've found is towards the end of the season around 4/5 horses which i'm breeding just disappear. I sent Mark a video of it to show him.

Right i see. Thanks for the update Jalupen.

I've been questioning myself on whether or not i'd breed those horses. Until i found out it wasn't me going crazy.

Never had a 2yo it the 130's ratings before.

Not great looking stats but was surprised with the 131 rating after 3 runs.

What's peoples highest 2yo rating?

I've had a rating of 140 after 2 or 3 runs before (3-4 months ago). Mentioned it in general discussion thread, no one responded :lol:

I've noticed in a UK game if you run your 2yo abroad in the feature or even maiden races you can get 100+ easily. The 140 rating came after winning G1 races in Australia you have in your screenshot by several lengths each.

Wow that's very impressive. Not sure it's realistic though. No 2yo should be hitting 130s after only a few runs.
