Can my racehorse still win if it's at low stamina?

Yes, but its chances will be reduced. Stamina primarily affects your racehorse's maximum speed.

If I can only enter each racehorse in one race at a time, is there a limit to how many races in a row I can enter?

No. You can enter any given racehorse in as many races in a row as you wish, but you must consider that a racehorse will lose stamina.

Yes. You can continue enter your racehorse into more racing events, even if when it is at low stamina.

Can my racehorse die from low stamina?

No. Over-racing your racehorse will not result in its death.

How many races can my horse be entered in at once?

One. As soon as that race entered is finished, you will be able to enter your racehorse in another race.

If I win a ‘Below 5% win rate’ race, can I still enter in more?

Yes, you can continue entering and winning these races until your racehorse's win rate exceeds 5%. If after more races your horse's win rate falls below 5% again, you will be able to re-enter these races.

Will I be able to drop down a class when my racehorse performs poorly in higher class races?

No. Your racehorse will not be able to lose class rating points by losing in a higher class race. For example, if your horse is a Class IV runner, and you enter it in a Class I race and lose, it will not lost any class rating points. Therefore it will not be downgraded into Class V.

How do I know which distance to race my racehorse at?

Distance preference is an element of discovery within the game. Racing at a variety of distances helps you get the information you need. ZED RUN has some cues to help with this discovery process.

Why did you remove odds?

The team aimed to provide a more fair approach to racing and promote racehorse discovery.

Without odds, how do I figure out if my racehorse is a good racer?

The discovery process is meant to be an exciting and challenging experience for stable owners. To truly find out if you have a winning racehorse, you will need to enter your racehorse across all distances, multiple times to begin discovering and learning its distance preference. You can also use the race performance indicator (🔥) as a tool to help with your horse discovery process.

What does the flame symbol (🔥) mean?

The flame is a race performance indicator that appears next to the three racehorses which are the most likely to win/place (finish in the top 3 positions) in any given race.

Why did you introduce stamina?

Stamina adds another layer of complexity to ensure more fair racing.

Why did you remove queues?

The team listened to the community, and after receiving feedback about the growing wait times for races, wanted to ensure users can enjoy more races, more often.

Why can I only enter one race per horse?

This is to ensure the fairness and integrity of race eligibility for racehorses. For example, if you were to submit your horse into three races, one of which is a 0% win racing event and two other racing events, and win one, you would technically no longer be eligible for the 0% win racing event.
