Track King is a free online horse racing stable management game in which you compete against stables managed by other users all over the world.

As a Track King, you take on the role of Stable Manager - or maybe even a Stable Owner! You buy, sell and breed horses, manage jockeys and invest the stable's money in training and veterinary facilities and stud breeding programs. You select Cup and League race entrants from the horses and jockeys in your stable that best suit the conditions and are in top form, plan your tactics before the next race, decide on what training is needed and much, much more.

You can keep yourself continuously updated on the state of your stable by logging on to the Track King website, looking at your race results (or watching the races!) and checking out the latest horses on the transfer market. You can also give your jockeys orders for upcoming races and tell the trainers how the horses will train during the week. Track King has been designed to be as simple - or as difficult - as you want it to be. Just entering a couple of races a week using the invitations on your Stables homepage, and setting a simple training routine for your horses will take less than 15 minutes a week. But if you really want to explore, there's all sorts of stats that you can look into to try and get that extra performance from your steeds.

The best thing about Track King is that there's no 'Game Over'. If your stable goes bankrupt, it's possible to reset (See Finances/Liquidation). And there's also no right or wrong way to play. Just keep trying, experimenting with different parts of the game, and sooner or later you'll hit a good streak of wins in races, or breed a magnificent foal, or train a superb apprentice jockey...each of which will carry you further along the path to being a successful Track King! Start your new stable HERE!

My memory of Sludge Beast is that she was bred for the right season with Cups in place to suit as each Medium Cup was wet from season to season, bar the 4yo Lowe Guineas. That was fast that day not great for a muddie. So Sludge Beast had the string of wins in the Medium age Cups up until the Jewel of the Mile when she got knocked over by Snopplennart, a monster that
I am sure had a few World Records. Unfortunately he is not in the Hall Of Fame.

Sludge Beast did have one bad day in the Jewel (4th), the odd bad days I think all horses have had. Sludge Beast went on to compete in the Magic Mile Cups and won one, maybe should of won more. Sludge Beast was a dam, who was fine on dead as well as slow track conditions. She also ran well over short distances which saw her win the American Cup.

I competed a number of times against Sludge Beast with Lalani and Lunar Eclipse, so I did see her raced a few times. I was happy to finish in front of her at least once, but she really was Stiffy's work of art. As she was indeed a beast, she was well named.

Saturday we saw the 12th running of the Epsom Derby with 15 starters, 3 late entries. With the track dead it gave many a fighting chance. In such a even field we saw Cee Eee Oh start favourite from Maybe Next Season, with Pleasure And Pain 3rd line of betting.
1st Quarter: As the starter let them go, Cee Eee Oh took off with Maybe Next Season close behind. By the first quarter a group of four, Maybe Next Season, Decidedly, Spells Trouble and Pleasure And Pain were bunched with a small group in behind. More...

Good news! HB has agreed for the Excellence Awards trophies to be added to the Display Cabinets at the end of each season!

"I can organise a trophy, if you'd like to get a graphic done.

The only proviso is that they need to be OC at the time of being awarded the trophy, and it will only be visible on their stable while they are an OC member." -HB

So please keep your OC subscriptions up to date!

There will be 8 awards, but only 4 different trophies awarded. Please see how this will work below as well as the images above;

Trophy A with Popup Text: 2yo Horse of the Year - Season 29 - The Racing Report Excellent Awards - (Horse Name) of (Stable Name)
Trophy A with Popup Text: 3yo Horse of the Year - Ditto for rest
Trophy A with Popup Text: 4yo Horse of the Year - Ditto for rest
Trophy A with Popup Text: 5yo Horse of the Year - Ditto for rest
Trophy A with Popup Text: 6yo Horse of the Year - Ditto for rest
Trophy B with Popup Text: Horse of the Year - Season 29 - The Racing Report Excellent Awards - (Horse Name) of (Stable Name)
Trophy C with Popup Text: Trainer of the Year - Season 29 - The Racing Report Excellent Awards - (Trainer Name) of (Stable Name)
Trophy D with Popup Text: Jockey of the Year - Season 29 - The Racing Report Excellent Awards - (Pro Jockey Name) apprenticed for (Stable Name)


Additional information: The Horse, Trainer and Jockey of the Year awards will all be connected to the 2 year old - 6 year old competitions that The Racing Report covers. All jockeys competing must have originally apprenticed with a players' stable.

How the awards will be determined:
This has not been decided yet, but all players who subscribe to the new Racing Report's official forum in Track King can give us your ideas on this matter and they will be considered.

Jockey of the Year award:
Hint: It would be a good idea to get your Apprentice jockeys competing in the Apprentice Leagues and Yearling Pulls around the world. The more experienced they are, the better qualified they will be for this award.

Novus Propinquo is the Best Damned Horse I've Seen in the Game
I ran into Woodchucker at the pub tonight who told me an interesting story about Novus Propinquo, the Hall of Fame stallion that was .owned by Manor Park. "Did you know that. damned Novus won World Cups over 3 distances; sprint, short and medium between the .ages of 3 to 6 years old? Now that was some feat in the age restricted Cups and against .some of the best horses in the world at those distances too! What makes it even better is .that it was done at a time when there was a lot less of those Cups.. It was a feat that I don't .think has been done before or since!

Because of what Novus and Manor Park did, it gave me the idea to try something like that myself with one of my horses. Now .my horse can't be spoken of in the same breath as Novus heh, heh, but without seeing such a .horse I doubt that I would of even tried to compete at multiple distances. So for me what Novus did makes him simply the best damned horse in Track King!" Woodchucker just shook his head in wonder while he continued to draw on his pint.

I later left woodchucker thinking that I should go to the Hall of Fame museum tomorrow and watch Novus Propinquo's 6 World Cup and 2 Regional Cup replay races for myself. I had to agree with him,. that I. had not known that any horse in Track King had accomplished such a feat before as well. -JimCougar

The State of Restricted Races in Track King

If you have been having difficulty finding age restricted races for your colts and fillies recently, here is the reason. There are only 15 player-created 2yo stakes races in the Track King world for the 3-week period of Oct. 24th through Nov. 7th. There are 2 in America, 3 in Asia, 3 in Australia, 0 in Africa, and with the best showing of 7 in Europe.

The number of races for 3yos is much thinner. From that same 3-week period there are only 4 player-created races for all of the continents in Track King. In that same time period there are 3 races for 4yos, 2 races for 5yos and 0 for 6yos.

There used to be some very good rivalries of many stables' colts & fillies from season to season. What needs to happen to inspire players to create more races for these horses in Track King? Please post your ideas in The Racing Report threads in the various Forums. All suggestions are welcome.

Addendum:
I am getting some good information on the various 2yo & 3yo leagues around the TK world so when it is completely sorted out, I will report on them. It will definately show an increase in the 2yo & 3yo restricted races, at least in Australia and Europe. Would still like to see more of these races in Asia, Africa and America. It would also be good to have a nice showing of races for the 4yos through 6yos as well.

Horse race at the Oktoberfest in Munich 1823
The History of Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is the world's largest funfair held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-day festival running from late September to the first weekend in October with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often simply called Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese) themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.

The Munich Oktoberfest originally took place during the 16 days up to, and including, the first Sunday in October. In 1994, the schedule was modified in response to German reunification so that if the first Sunday in October falls on the 1st or 2nd, then the festival would go on until October 3 (German Unity Day). Thus, the festival is now 17 days when the first Sunday is October 2 and 18 days when it is October 1. In 2010, the festival lasted until the first Monday in October, to mark the anniversary of the event. The festival is held in an area named the Theresienwiese (field, or meadow, of Therese), often called Wiesn for short, located near Munich's center. Large quantities of Oktoberfest Beer are consumed, with almost 7 million litres served during the 16 day festival in 2007. Visitors may also enjoy a mixture of attractions, such as amusement rides, sidestalls and games, as well as a wide variety of traditional food such as Hendl (roast chicken), Schweinebraten (roast pork), Schweinshaxe (grilled ham hock), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Würstl (sausages) along with Brezen (pretzel), Knödel (potato or bread dumplings), Käsespätzle (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Rotkohl/Blaukraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a spiced cheese-butter spread) and Weisswurst (a white sausage).

Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields were named Theresienwiese ("Theresa's meadow") in honor of the Crown Princess, and have kept that name ever since, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to the "Wiesn".

Horse races in the presence of the Royal Family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in the subsequent year gave rise to the tradition of the Oktoberfest.

"The festival was eventually prolonged and moved ahead to September to allow for better weather conditions. Today, the last day of the festival is the first Sunday in October. In 2006, the Oktoberfest extended two extra days because the first Tuesday, October 3, was a national holiday. Over the past 200 years, Oktoberfest was cancelled 24 times due to cholera epidemics and war."
