  • Off Track Training

    Going to post a quick overview of the new Off Track Training.

    I just bred a yearling colt named Ott Ott Baby

    Went through the normal training techniques and got him down to the 1.09.33-1.09.36 area.

    First we are going to begin the Off Track Training on him.



    Here is the layout of the Off Track Training page.




    Here is the best work so far for Ott Ott Baby

    Let's do some gate training and see if we can improve him.





    I went ahead and trained on the gate training twice, slid the slider to +2 and saved. Now let's see how he works.

    Compared to

    Notice the great improvement of the first split and general improvement overall.

    Hope this helps to explain a bit more of the Off Track Training. It may be a bit daunting at first but once you play around with it and experiment with the sliders it should be a useful tool to help improve your horses some. It probably won't change a dud to a Triple Crown winner but it may save some from the glue factory.

    Best of luck.

    I may have missed a few things but this should give you the general idea of how the OTT works.

      So you have to save first before hitting the train now button on your chosen slider?????

        No you hit the train button move you slider then save. I think they also reset after another train so after training will have to set them where you want then save. Sorry if i was confusing.

                OK let me see if I have this right B

                These are only meters to set that affect the timed works? These aren't actually works themselves?
                First you click the train now button to unlock the meter?
                Second you set the meter where you want it?
                Third you click the save button to save the meter setting?
                Fourth you go to regular training and train your horse?

                Does the meter stay at that setting so that you can say for example train that same setting on push and
                steady, etc. without using up another training bar?

                If I remember correctly I think Lone mentioned that once the horse turns 2yo this option on training disappears. Do the meters then stay as last set so that you are locked into those settings for racing?

                  Fourth you go to regular training and train your horse? All Correct

                  Does the meter stay at that setting so that you can say for example train that same setting on push and
                  steady, etc. without using up another training bar? Yes they should.

                  They should as well. Would be pointless if you cant take advantage of the training on the track. I'm sure we will test it at season change to make certain.

                    So if, theoretically, you wanted to race a horse with different styles say quicker out of the gate in sprints but slower from the gate with more endurance at slightly longer distance you wouldn't be able to change settings so you are stuck with what you last set?
