Class Progression
Every racehorse will begin with a base rating of 17, 37 or 57 as outlined in the previous section of this blog. After each race, a racehorse will be awarded the following points based on its finishing position which will be added to its base rating.

After every race, a racehorse can either regress into a lower tier Class, stay in the same Class or progress into a higher tier Class.
For example, if you own an un-raced Z4 racehorse (Griffin Class) and it finishes in first place, its post class rating will be 61 (57 + 4), thereby starting in Class 2.
A racehorse can compete in higher tiered Classes outside of its current Class, however it cannot compete in a lower tiered Class. For example, a Class 3 racehorse can compete in Class 3, Class 2 and Class 1 races, however it cannot compete in Class 4 or Class 5 races.
As of 7th Aug 2021, when competing in a higher tiered class there will be no points deducted. This is a temporary measure implemented while the new class system is being developed to prevent users deliberately losing races to keep a racehorse in a lower class.
