Hey folks!

As most of you are aware, there a big effort from my end (as well as several players) that goes into updating the game for the following year. The primary needs are listed below :

* Create an assortment of 1 year old horses that will become 2 at the beginning of the year (giving us new CPU horses in the even of unfilled races

This is done!

* Get as much sire information (new sires, sire updates/upgrades, retired sires, etc) as possible and incorporate into the game

This is always the most detailed part, and I'm going to have to take it down to the wire this year I fear. My normal sources for accumulating sire information have made it more difficult to aggregate. I spent the majority of my weekend (slowly) getting the information together, but I'm not quite finished yet. As always, feel free to send me emails on updates (particularly non-US based sires).

* Updated stakes schedule

I will try to get this out during the next week; generally this isn't super difficult, but it does take time due to the manual effort involved in finding the actual day some of the sim's real counterpart races are carded (which isn't always decided at this time of year).   I realize some stakes races are incorrectly placed by several weeks (or more) at the moment and will try to fix as many as I can(especially the $1 million+ races) but, if a race is a week or so off after the update (and it doesn't affect the dynamics of similar races around it), I'm likely okay with that.

So estimated schedule is :

Dec 10 : New Stakes Races Posted (possible adjustments through Dec 17)
Dec 17 : First pass of sires added/removed
Dec 24 : Final batch of new sires added/removed

Dec 17-30 : Minor tweaks for sires/races as necessary

Thanks guys!
