New players start with 15 horses but may extend by adding more after they have shown reliability and commitment. Maximum number of horses in a stable is 80.

There are leagues for Trainers points (3 for a win, 2 for a 2nd and 1 for a 3rd place) - Gambling (Game money) - Jockeys (Full and Conditional) - Percentage (based upon points to runners)

Every horse has an age, handicap rating, speed rating, jump rating and stamina rating. There are early declaration races and Lady Lucks (a sort of chance card).

Be realistic with your expectations and don't expect to beat the players who have been there for years, immediately.
