Horses will earn points for finishing first, second, third, and starting a race. Below is the breakdown of how to earn points:
⁃ Triple Crown Races
Win: 100 points
Place: 50 points
Show: 25 points
Start in the race: 10 points
– Bonus Races: Oaklawn Invitational, Pat Day Mile, and Peter Pan Stakes
Win: 20 points
Place: 10 points
Show: 5 points
Start in the race: 1 point
A Triple Crown winner is worth an extra 1,000 point bonus!
Claiming: For the first year ever, teams can claim horses every week!
– Players will have the ability to claim horses every Monday. After everyone has had a chance to put in claims on Monday, new claims will be announced Tuesday. In the event of two or more people trying to claim the same horse, a live video shake will be conducted by the dictator, just like what happens when two or more people try to claim a horse out of a race.
– Each claim will cost you points. You can go into the negatives, so you don’t have to have points established to make a claim. The claiming points fees are as follows:
– A May claim will cost you 50 points
– A June claim will cost you 60 points
⁃ Trades are allowed. All trades must involve an equal amount of horses. All teams must always have five members at all times.
⁃ All trades must be approved by the commissioner in case of obvious shenanigans.
