2016 Rivals by Geronimo24
2016 Rivals
Edit: SINCE CHAOS AND LITERALLY LIGHTENING HAS MUCKED UP MY WORLD AND GOD KNOWS WHEN THE PONY DRAMA OF THIS SEASON WILL END THIS IS GONNA BE A DRAW TO ADOPT FROM HERE ON OUT. If there are horses with multiple bids (I dont think there are but I'mma check my favorite folder to be certain) I will auction judge them like usual. If not if you drew it you won! That said if you bid/win any of the old rules still apply (bolded) and I gotta use these guys to finish my season for continuity & feel free to message me about a collab featuring them!! 

1. To bid on any of these guys you need only submit an image, story will gain you a few extra points but nothing major if you don't include
2. You are more than welcome to bid on multiple horses in fact I encourage it! But each horse you bid on just get its own image for comparisons sake to others bids
3. No whining complaining or any such drama about the results these are only pretend ponies after all. This is all done in the spirit of fun and sharing a common interest after all!!

Finally! Stay tuned for that auction I've been promising. It's going to be my most ambitious auction yet and will be up by the end of this coming week! In the spirit of the actual American sales season it will be a mixed breeding stock sale auction so there will be mares in foal, horses of racing age, yearlings and wealings! Some will be foundation some will be out of foundation mares by my HARPG stallions. So something should appeal to everyone!!

Okay, first things first, I do my seasons by year and since HARPG is essentially an alternative universe (basically after 2011 any events in the racing world ceased in favor of my own canon story ie. no American Pharoah, no Beholder, no Tonalist, no Orb, no California Chrome, get it?) 

Essentially this is a mini-auction. Outside of Colpevole (Who I have plans for) all these horses are up for adoption once they "retire" So it's pretty simple, draw a picture of the horse, drop the link in the comments or note me, and if you do a nice job of it, the horse is yours! 

On that note; some things to know. ALL the two year olds will be racing through my next HARPG season, so they won't be available for breeding use for a while. 
Both 4yo colts will be retired at the end of this current season. (Also last year I had no three year olds on the Triple Crown Trail, so meet last years top colts.) 
Pharaoh (okay I created this guy in 2013 WAY before American Pharoah was a blip on the map and I think it's just hilarious) could be retired at the end of this season or not, it would be the new owners choice 
Honorbound will be retired after this season
Tizadarling will NOT be retiring after this season, its been hinted that her present racing owners want to race her through her 4th year
Jezebel is like Pharaoh, she can retire or she can keep racing through her 4 year old season 
The race listed underneath the horse stats is the BEST race won, all of these horses have won multiple races in addition, they're the top class of racehorses 


FINALLY: If you are a-okay with me writing your stable in as the present owners of any of these horses, if you win/adopt one of these guys I will incorporate your characters/silks/etc into my plot BEFORE they retire, thus you can list them as part of your stable etc. HOWEVER I already have this season planned out and next season sketched out so you wouldn't have any control over what races the horse won/lost or any injuries they might accumulate. I can promise you that all of these horses win at least one G1 race and NONE of them will be fatally injured. The two year old dirt colts will go onto the Triple Crown Trail and find success (not spoiling what obviously). Once I retire a horse they are 100% yours to use for breeding purposes, heck if you wanted to retrain them on the side you could. They're yours a 100% is what I'm saying. 

So, uh, put some bids in guys? :)

Remember how I just posted life was busy etc etc etc? GUESS WHOSE HOUSE GOT HIT BY LIGHTNING AND CAUGHT FIRE? 

Yeah, it me. Everyone was okay and our 4 dogs are okay as the fire was mostly contained, but water damage etc is extensive and we're going to be out of the house for about six months while they gut it and put up new drywall, new floors, etc. SO. Silver lining we are moving into the beautiful house on the farm where the horse I leased lives so it can't be all bad right???

Hey! So, I'm not going to be using my breeding to Genghis just yet, I've decided to cross the mare with one of my own studs this year.
