Missing a race incurs penalties. You are allowed to miss 3 races in a week. If you miss four, you will not be allowed to race for one hour.

How do I change my name?

By clicking on the pencil to the right of your name, you will be able to edit it.

How do I change my horse and silks?

From the main menu, click on “Profile”. This will display your profile’s preferences, including your display name, horse type, and jockey.

By clicking on the pencil to the right of each of these, you will be able to edit any of your preferences. Different horses perform differently on different tracks, so be sure to change your horse regularly.

How do I change the resolution settings?

Not all computers are made equal, so we made sure you could manage the graphics of the game to best suit your machine. To make the graphics either higher or lower resolution, click on “Settings” from the main menu.

From here, you will see three settings: video, graphics, and audio.

Clicking on Video lets you change the ratio of the visuals to suit your screen. You should make sure that the resolution settings match your screen, so if your screen is 1920 x 1200 pixels, you should select this option from the dropdown and then click “apply”.

Changing the render quality of the graphics can have significant affects on your computer’s processor, so only play with these settings if you know what you are doing. From the settings menu, click on “Graphics” and change these settings to your preferred. We recommend not going above Medium for any of the settings if you have a computer that isn’t specifically designed for gaming. Once you have changed your settings, click on “apply” to save them.
