Steed 2012 - breeding is done now

Steed 2012 - breeding is done now

Postby squirrel » Thu Nov 17, 2011 10:13 pm

rules and prizes and stuff

We're going to run 3yos of 2012 for a change of pace next time around. We know that it may be easier to get the breedings you want done by breeding as either 2yos this year or 3yos in January, so we're announcing contest terms so you all have a chance to go either way. We'll also be able to run the contest longer with 3yos, and hopefully get some faster babies out of the game.

As a reminder, these horses are to be bred by Comedians and will be randomly assigned to other Comedians to campaign during 2012, so we really do suggest some nicer breedings.

The schedule is not yet posted on the rules page above, i still need to add weeks for various deadlines. Roughly, you can expect breedings through about the end of January, some time to ship horses around, and we'll kick off racing the 3rd or 4th week of February with racing running through end of year.

Please note we're adding more interim prizes throughout the year, and new for 2012 are prizes for any stakes wins.

We want to strongly emphasize this: It is important that the stable with your contest runner remain supporting CC over the course of the contest. Failure to do so will eliminate your horse from the competition - which will also elimate the breeder of the horse from winning anything too. Removing your stable from CC support will ALSO eliminate you from any breeder prize you may have won. If this happens, the breeder prize will be split between the next qualifying owner/trainer duo.

So, Comedians, start your breeding! Remember, Steed 2012 is for 3yos of 2012, so if you breed a steed November/December, make it a 2yo, if you breed it in January make it a 3yo.

I like totally just bred one. When it shows up it will be "need for steed" a super fast colt or filly (obviously depending on whether it has a dong when they flip it over and check or not) with the breeding Smart Strike x Silver Deputy x Awesome Again. This will be my steed to donate unless everyone else breeds something even more super amazing and makes me feel bad for breeding such a craptastic beast. Ok folks breed away.

There should be a rule for the max race numbers, so each and every race counts. Don't want to see anyone race their horse 20 times.

Actually, I completely disagree with such an assessment. The fun of BmS for me is twofold. First, I find it interesting the different breeding combos that are entered, and second, I enjoy seeing the different training tactics. I can tell you right now that cmd will run the legs off of his beast, because that is what cmd does. Tartar will bid races for his runner at the same track at a set interval because that is what tartar does. Neither of these tactics are wrong, but they are different tactics.

I like to think that giving extra points for placing in stakes and graded races addresses the 'every race counting' aspect of the contest. It's those extra points that allowed Sluggy Trouble to win this contest two years ago, and while I ran that horse rather aggressively, I don't think I ran the legs off of him.

Now if you want to talk about many of CC's contests rewarding a certain type of racing/training style over a different type of racing/training style - I suspect we could have a lively discussion there.

My only comment on making drastic changes to an existing contest is that on more than one occasion I have thrown out open invites for people to custom build a contest however they choose to and I will make it happen. The challenge has rarely been accepted. So if you have any cool contest ideas and have a certain way you want them ran by all means post something and I'll see if we can afford to make your dream a reality.

The only way that one is beating my beast is if I am the one training it.

I have to defend my title, so I'm in.

Hard Steed - Haradasun x Caerleon x Habitat will be transferred once he/she shows up (Also, that combo cost way more credits than I expected it to. I hope Mike is still giving credits for entering horses into the Wikipedigree database).
