In Track King, you own a horse racing stable competing in Leagues and Cups and Stakes races to try and become the most prestigious stable. You don't need to know anything about horse racing to play!! You can buy/sell horses or stud rights, breed and train horses, manage your finances and staff, and enter into races - and best of all you can watch the races LIVE in your browser!
Track King is a game that can be played in 5-minutes each week or two....but once you're hooked, we're sure you'll be visiting the site several times a week to check in on your virtual steeds.
Races are run using a detailed simulator, which factors in the body stats and condition of the horses, their experience, the track conditions and weather, the race distance, and the jockey's style - amongst other things! In the race, jockeys use their own Artificial Intelligence to make their decisions on the best action to take - with each jockey having a unique personality type and "brain". In fact, players even have the ability to mould the "brain" of their apprentice jockeys to try and create a jockey that is perfect for the style of racing they want from their horses. You can be certain that no race is random - and that no two races will be exactly the same.
Watch the races live in your browser using the Race Vision tool, or analyse the performance of any horses on the Race Analysis Tool (RAT), which shows various data from the race in graph form, to try and interpret what went wrong - or what went right!
Breeding uses a simple-yet realistic version of genetics. Each horse has DNA consisting of 18 known gene-pairs - and some unknown ones! When two horses breed, the mare will be unable to race for several weeks, during which time the foal develops. Players can keep track of the progress of the foal by monitoring an "overall rating" as often as they like. Eventually, the foal is born and will carry DNA created from crossing the DNA/gene-pairs of both parents - think back to your High School biology class!
Anytime players want to test the DNA of their horses - or of any of the horses on Auction for sale or for stud - they can obtain a report for a small fee to their stable. The report is often humorous, with comments from the geneticist and his faithful assistant.
