OK Trainers, it is here, possibly the greatest showcase in Sim Racing, EQUINICS, the thoroughbred equivalent to the world event, THE OLYMPICS. Most trainers in our great game strive to participate in this time honoured event, glory and prestige await but a few but being part of a team representing your chosen Residency is an achievement in itself. I would firstly like to thank Mike, on the behalf of ever player for making this possible and his continued focus on making this the best horse racing Sim worldwide. I would like to congratulate every player that have entrants and wish you all the best of luck. To all the people co-ordinating the event, game staff, Residency bosses and a myriad of people behind the scenes, we salute you.
This years event carries a Hall of Fame theme so I would like to pay tribute to some of the legends of the Sim world.
