HOW IT WORKS
CREATING A STABLE
The biggest change in SuperCoach Racing is we have reduced the number of horses needed for your stable.
This season you need to fit eight horses and a jockey (who remains free) under your salary cap before the first round of the competition begins.
Your initial salary cap is now $1.8 million – which can increase or decrease throughout the season.
The performance of every horse each round will contribute points to your total, and there are unlimited trades which will allow you to have a full stable for every meeting.
Your stable is locked in for the round when the first race jumps. There are no rolling lockout like other SuperCoach games.
Download the SuperCoach Racing app to check your scores and manage your stable anywhere, anytime.
THE SCORING SYSTEM
Your horses will receive points for finishing in the top 10 in a race. The higher they place, the more points you get.
The higher the rating of the race, the more points awarded. For example, Group 1 races are worth more than Group 2 races.
The top seven scoring horses will count towards your points tally for that round.
Nominate a “captain” and that runner will receive double points.
Pick a jockey you think will dominate. He or she will earn points for every race they finish first, second or third.
Horses which do not finish a race will be awarded zero points.
SUPERCOACH RACING SCORING SYSTEM
Horses have been assigned a value based on previous form and current rating.
The cheapest horses available start at $50,000 and the most expensive are $500,000, which is the maximum price.
Their values will change based on their finishing position from the completion of round one.
The price of horses will increase if they finish top two in a Group 1 or win in a Group 2 and Group 3, or decrease if they run bottom two in a Group 1 or last in a Group 2 and Group 3. There are no changes in Listed/Other races.
Last and second-last will be determined based on last-past-the-post. Horses that don’t finish a race will not be considered to have come last and no price changes will apply.
In another rule change, there must now be at least eight horses running in a race for the last (or last two) finishers to drop in value. Also, if a race initially had nine runners but there are two scratchings, there will be no price reductions because only seven horses contested that race.
