The 25th is a very special day every month as the finals of the famous Royal Team Cup, the oldest racing competition of the game, are being held.
It starts at 7:01 pm local time with the 1Y old Flat Racing final, till 10:18 pm with the latest race, the 8Y old Trotting final. 24 finals will follow one after the other: in 3 racing disciplines (Flat, Hurdling, trotting), 8 generations of age (1 to 8 years old horses).
The competition ranking table will be calculated and published in real time after each arrival. The Team Cup is a fierce competition where the horses (the best of their generation) are prepared for this special occasion since a long time. Most of them had first to pre-qualify within Team Races and then qualify during the first round races that were held on the 15th.
For a Team, winning the Team Cup is entering the legend of the game.
For a stable owner, winning a Team Cup final is an excellent publicity for his stud, and always good for the portfolio too!
Nominal Stud fees:
€8.0 in Flat Racing (€5.0 funding to the Flat Racing Prize Pool).
€3.0 in Hurdling, plus a €1.5 optional supplementary fee to give a future access to Golden Races.
€4.0 in Trotting (€1.0 funding to the Trot&Harness Racing Prize Pool).
The final stud fee is negociated between the breeder (the owner of the stud mare) et the stallion's owner. The nominal stud fee is deducted from the final stud fee which is credited into the stallion owner's account. The stallion's owner also pays an additional 10% on his profit.
The Random Number Generator (RNG), scaling, and mapping algorithms used (in small proportion) in the transmission from one generation to another of genetic factors (heredity and breeding algorithms) have been independantly evaluated as fair and not predictable.
