What does a horse’s grade mean?

Horses in Photo Finish Live are graded based on their genetics. The Grades are:

  • D
  • C
  • B
  • A
  • S
  • SS
  • SSS

D is the lowest grade and SSS is the highest. Each grade is subdivided. A horse with A plus is stronger than a horse with no marker or one with a minus. A horse’s attributes (Start, Speed, Stamina, Finish, Heart, and Temper) are all graded as well. Each of these grades shows the strength of the horse in that specific trait. A horse’s Grade is the average of it’s attribute grades. Grades are a range. An S grade is not a single number of a small range of numbers. Two horses with S grade Start will have very similar Start but may not have the exact same value.
