We are currently undergoing a lot of change in an effort to rejuvenate SS. We're currently working on some new show systems and other goodies for you guys, so hang tight! If you have any suggestions, let us know here!

March, 2015
Spring is on it's way! Be sure to make sure your horses get lots of fresh grass and sunshine! Take some time to spend with your horses and show us how they're enjoying spring by showing them off!

Have a horse that has earned over 30pts? Then maybe that horse is deserving of being featured on the banner rotation here at SS! Apply Here

This is the 1st of 7 Kentucky Derby preps on Seeing Stars! Any points your horses earn in this race will be put toward a place in the starting gate of the Kentucky Derby on May 3. Only 14 horses will be allowed to enter on Derby Day, so enter as many preps as possible to build up point counts and stats! GI and under horses may enter! GI - GIII horses will incur high weight imposts to level the field.

Any horses that competed in the 2011 - 2014 Triple Crown trails are ineligible to enter this race. See this thread for a full list of ineligible horses.

Rules
+ Fill out the whole form
+ Up to three horses per person, will race AT A MAX OF 14 HORSES

PLEASE NOTE. When entering, COUNT THE HORSES IN FRONT OF YOU. Only 14 horses max are allowed per race - please make sure when you enter, you are not over the limit. I do not want to have DQ anyone for any reason.

Ability List
Racing Silks

Note: Be sure to play to your horse's distance. A long-distance runner at 10 furlongs may not be able to get up for a sprint and vice versa. Some horses may be able to go an extra furlong, but may run out of ground too quickly in a shorter race for its closing kick!

Results:
1st - 5 points to add to one stat of your choice
2nd - 4 points to add to one stat of your choice
3rd - 3 points to add to one stat of your choice

Call

The horses have reached the starting gate! They're all in line... andddd they're off!

It's a good break for the field with Spitfire and Magnhild off quick, Tyka rushing to challenge from midfield with Player between horses. Tyka wants that lead and he will take it, he's up by about two here with Spitfire running on four wide to chase, Magnhild even wider to the outside, Player right there with them with Texas Hold Em another two back in fifth, Avarice two more back in sixth with Pharlaris right there with her, Derringer up to the outside, Danger Keep Away futher back today with Citation at his flank, Prince of Thorns running on four wide to the outside, Colt Pistol back etween horses, Whirlaway running on second last and Ranger is our trail here as they run that opening quarter in 23.1 and head into the clubhouse turn. Tyka leading the way here but three now, Spitfire chasing with Player third, Magnhild very wide to the outside, Texas Hold Em fifth at the rail, Phalaris and Avarice picking it up a bith, Colt Pistol running on with Danger Keep Away at his flanks, Derringer between horses, Prince of Thorns to the outside, Citation at teh rail with Whirlaway just a length behind and Ranger two more back trailing as they come to a half mile in 46.9, a good strong pace here today. Tyka running on to the lead here with Spitfire still gamely chasing, Player right there with them as Magnhild begins to tire, she's given all she's got and she's on the retreat, Texas Hold Em picking up the pace with Avarice looking to come on between horses, Citation scraping paint with Phalaris beginning to lose steam, Derring and Colt Pistol running on with Danger Keep Away picking it up, Prince of Thorns still running on very wide to the outside here, Whirlaway trailing with Ranger starting to get momentum as they run six furlongs in 1:10.7 and approach the far turn! Tyka still in front by three lengths here as he rounds the bend and leads the field into the homestretch!

At the top of the lane, TYKA leads the way with a furlong and a half to go, Spitfire is losing steam here as Texas Hold Em splits horses to challenges, he'll scrap paint to try to get within striking distance of free wheeling Tyka, Avarice looking to come on between horses AND PRINCE OF THORNS RUNNING 10 WIDE TO CHALLENGE ON THE OUTSIDE! Prince of Thorns pushed widest of all on that far turn but he will roar down the center of the track to challenge, he's eating up that ground as they come to the final furlong, he's got dead aim on Tyka and Tyka is asked for more as they come within the eighth pole AND TYKA DIGS DEEP TO FEND OFF A CHARGING PRINCE OF THORNS! Tyka finding more as he looks to wire this field, Prince of Thorns roaring up on the outside, Texas HOld Em at the rail with Avarice charging in between horses, Player fighting to keep on with Danger Keep Away right there, RANGER running huge between horses, Spitfire fading with Citation looking to get a piece of it, Derringer adn Colt Pistol running on together, they're coming to the final sixteenth, TYKA REFUSES TO BE HEADED AND PRINCE OF THORNS CAN GET NO CLOSER, Tyka is no trouble today as he just romps over this deep field on the first stop on the Road to the Kentucky Derby.

Tyka a sparkling winner today to smash his half-brother's record by almost 2 seconds! Prince of Thorns was second, Texas Hold Em third, Avarice fourth and Player fifth.
