Horse Racing Manager 2018 is a new game for the iOS and Android platforms where you manage horses, train them, send them out to races, and compete for first place. You can earn horseshoes and cash, manage every bit of your horse’s health and performance, and breed new horses to try to find the one that can win all sorts of races. Read on for some tips and tricks for Horse Racing Manager 2018!
One of the most important aspects of winning is to strike the right balance between training, weight, and rest. After a race, you’ll need to skip ahead by a month or two in order to get the rest and weight up. If you want to conserve food, rest until your horse is overweight, and then do some heavy training to get its form up to speed.
Your horse has traits that you can’t change that you’ll become privy to later in the game. Hit the “info” button above your horse for stats such as left turn, right turn, mud, dirt and grass stats. These stats, which are ranked from one to three stars, are something that you breed to improve, because you cannot improve them on your current horse; however, you can train in order to mitigate the negative effects of some of them.
The other stats, such as speed, stamina, start, burst, heart, and temper, can be improved in training. It doesn’t matter much what surface you train on, but gate training, for example, can improve start performance heavily. Light, medium, or heavy training all have merits, but the one you choose should depend on when you plan to race and how much rest your horse has.
When you begin a race, you can either hit the fast forward button to make it go by quickly, or the skip button to simply finish it all at once. Watching the race can show you where your horse needs to improve, and it can show you your horse’s weaknesses and strengths, as well as the traits of its style. For example, a “closer” style will speed up about halfway through a race, and can easily jump from mid-pack to first place.
Be sure to take every video reward that pops up. Also, complete trophies and challenges and claim the prizes in order to earn significant rewards. In addition to earning horseshoes, which are the premium currency of the game, you can earn free energy refills, allowing you to race even longer and to train and rest as needed before a race.
