Well done on that because I can't breed anything over 1m2 in my US game and i'm struggling to breed 5 furlong horses, 99 percent of my horses are between 7 furlong and 1m2 and they are useless

Another monster performance by my best horse Cross Master, probably even better as a 10 yo than at 9. Even though he's only 5 gen he might be the most impressive in game horse I've ever breed over jumps. :D

2 of my stars. Stamina bar almost the same. G I Joe is a 3 mile chaser that won the gold cup and grand national in the same year. Unendliche Geschichte is a 2 mile hurdler who only matured at 6, looks like she is peaking at 7. Both will probably be running in the trials

But as you can see from the stamina bars its pretty hard to tell what distances a horse likes without running them, both are useless on the flat.

Both nice looking horses, better 2m hurdler than I have found so far.

Is common for my jumps horses to mature at 8yo, have a few who go earlier. I have not found stamina to be much of an indication as to distance either. 4yo league horses will be a mystery as I have nothing that’s any good at 5yo so returning will be a bit of a waste, I may carve off a flat line in my combined game for them.

I am beginning to think you need to keep racing them for better ck performances. My mass trial is favouring those who raced until 9/10 over those who I rushed to export and only raced until 4/5. Should get a few out for the trials.

Yes found this too. If they don't run over fences they trial terribly. Luckily you can bring the stallions back into racing after they have covered some mares, so you can race them for longer.

I think the jumps game is now perfect, u can race them at their full potential until around 10 and have lots of fun and still have them in between in the breeding shed . The only down side is u have to try to work out when they are at their best in the CK but that's minor. It's great now if u just want to play the game normally without joining the league or if u want to breed for the league, my jumps game i'm playing is the most fun i've had in any SO game.

I agree it is a lot better now the horses mature properly am enjoying both my jump only games, how they will stand up to cast off flat lines that peak at 5 or so remains to be seen. The combined game is a bit of a pickle though.

I’d like to think the game is smart enough now to stop jumpers appearing in flat games and vice versa but I doubt it, you’ll have some jump genes in there somewhere i figure.

I know people like playing combined and people seem to think that it might have a advantage but I could never get on with it, im just happy to play my jumps game and even if it meant being at a disadvantage then so be, since the game got changed its taking me even longer to get through a jump season but I just love seeing my chasers race in game. I have no idea at what age a horse is at its best over jumps.

This race has been so hard to win for me. Only won it 1 time before after 60+ seasons, so to to win it again off top weight is a big achievement. So stoked :D
