    Rate Your Racing in 2018 on!

    Each passing year presents its own set of trials and tribulations for trainers in the virtual horse racing community.

    It is a good thing too, otherwise the game would become stagnant, predictable and boring, and trainers would become complacent and apathetic, and the sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, and literally all hell would break loose. It would be the end of the world as we know it. Fortunately, we have the power of the most unpredictable randoms in the world to keep your world rocking and racing.

    No need to thank us for that – being of service to you is our reward.

    While we have the power of the randoms on, we don’t actually have any control over them. Admittedly, we don’t have an invested interest in them either. We’ve resigned ourselves to the fact that the randoms are a force of nature that exert themselves with impunity in the community. To interfere with the randoms would be akin to messing with Karma – and we all know what they say about her!

    We prefer not to meddle with the inevitable because altering the course of destiny can have catastrophic implications in the remotest corners of the community. Sometimes the natural order of things just needs to be respected because the outcome could be much worse if we interfered with it.

    It is common knowledge that every win in the virtual horse racing on deserves a round of applause because we all know that there are no easy wins. You think you have the best horse in a race – or at least one with a chance, and miraculously you pull the worst jockey known to mankind. Alternatively, you race a horse that couldn’t win a Claimer just to complete your 500 Wins Award and bada bing, bada boom, you not only get the best draw, best jockey, and best track conditions, but your closest rival has accidentally overdosed his prime steed on vitamins. It’s devastating, but life is filled with uncertainties that can work in your favour – or not!

    So, we would like you to rate your racing on in 2018. Preferably without blaming us for your misfortunes, pointing fingers at the Race Programmer, or throwing shade at the Forum Police. Just an honest assessment of your highs and lows, what you could do better, and what you would never do again.
