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 Right turns, Dirt tracks, and Firm ground. It’s always a good idea to find races that your horse prefers running 

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

  1. Click on the Find Recommended Races button to automatically filter for races your horse is eligible for.
  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 a your horse and watch what happens when the race goes live.
That being said, there’s a whole lot more to Photo Finish™ LIVE than the few steps we covered here. When you’re ready for the next step, you can check out the Learn-to-Play guide or pop into our Discord chat server to talk to players and browse community resources.
