All About Racing Traits

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders

Recently, I have seen a few breeders asking about racing traits and thought it might be helpful to give some detail on how to tell if your horse is a racer, what the racing classes stand for and how to utilize these traits for maximum breeding fun!

When the version 3.5 Horse update came out on July 6, 2012, exciting new racing traits were hidden in new starters. You have a chance at the racing traits by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses. Racing traits ARE passable. So, you can get racing traits by breeding horses that already have them, as well. When the racing traits pass they can pass as the same class, one class higher, one class lower or two class’s lower than the shown trait.

The racing traits consist of a Speed Class and a Stamina Class. Speed is the sprinting speed of a horse. Speed is ranked using the following class system:

  • S = 3x Avatar Run Speed (ARS) (Highest Possible Class) 50 minutes of training time
  • A = 2.5x ARS 45 minutes of training time
  • B = 2x ARS 40 minutes of training time
  • C = 1.5x ARS 35 minutes of training time
  • D = ARS (Lowest Possible Class) 30 minutes of training time

Stamina is the amount of time a horse can sprint with recharging. Stamina is ranked by using the following class system:

  • S = 50 seconds of sprinting and 50 minutes of training time
  • A = 45 seconds of sprinting and 45 minutes of training time
  • B = 40 seconds of sprinting and 40 minutes of training time
  • C = 35 seconds of sprinting and 35 minutes of training time
  • D = 30 seconds of sprinting and 30 minutes of training time

You can, also, change/increase a horse’s speed and stamina class by training them. Experience or XP, is gained through training. To move from one class to the next you must train from 0% to 100% in the current class of that field. XP gains as follows:

  • Class D gains XP @ .5% per minute of training
  • Class C gains XP @ .4% per minute of training
  • Class B Gains XP @ .3% per minute of training
  • Class A Gains XP @ .1% per minute of training

To race or train your horses, you need the racing HUD. To get the HUD, simply click on the horse for the Menu. Then click the Help button and select HUD to have an Amaretto Horse HUD sent to your Objects folder. Next add the HUD to your avatar. For racing or riding, you will pick up your horse into your inventory and add it to your avatar as well. Click the connect button on the HUD to connect your horse.

Find detailed instructions on how to use the HUD for racing and training here:

*It is important to note that once a horse with racing traits is past the age of 120 days (retired), you will not be able to train or race it.*

Amaretto even has a racetrack available for you to race anytime! Check it out here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amaretto%20Ranch%20Haven/148/37/2489

Till next time…Happy Racing & Happy Breeding!
