Where Do I Start? (Pt.3 – Picking a Race)

Step 4 — Find a Race

Once you’ve purchased a horse, it’s time to race!  Go to the My Stable tab on the left menu bar. Then, pick a horse who is Ready to Race.

Take note of the stars below the name of your horse. These are its Preferences. This horse prefers Left turns, Turf tracks, and Firm ground. Finding races that your horse prefers running is always a good idea. 

Now that we know our horse’s preferences, let’s find a race. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Click the Find Recommended Races button to filter for races your horse is eligible for automatically.
  2. Go to the Races tab.

The Races Page shows all of the races in the current season. It’s a big list, so you may want to use the Filter options to find something suited. Consider sorting by Turn and Surface to find races your horse prefers (you cannot sort by condition because the weather is not confirmed until all entrants are in).

Another valuable filter is Race Type, which determines what competitive tier or special rules will be in play for the race. Don’t worry; races with special rules list them clearly, and you can find more information on the various race types here.

And that’s it! You’re ready to run your first race. Enter your horse and watch what happens when the race goes live.
That said, there’s much more to Photo Finish™ LIVE than the few steps we covered here. When ready for the next step, check out the Learn-to-Play guide or pop into our Discord chat server to talk to players and browse community resources.
