Breeders looking for entries
After our site upgrade to version 2 we split the Cards from the Entries. This was for a number of reasons but what we didn't know was that certain breeders looked for what horses were entered via the Breeder Search. Of course, this didn't work any more.
The good news is we have added that facility back. You will now see an "Entries" link next to the "Carded" link. Click to see where your horses have been entered.
Few glitches in V2
With testing and feedback we have encountered a few glitches in the Formgrids upgrade to Version 2 Phase 1. Considering the size of the update some problems are to be expected.
The good news is that most of these have been fixed.
On the whole, though, the upgrade went very well. Hope you are enjoying the new features :-)

J & B MET - Kenilworth - 1 Feb
J & B MET. Grade 1 race at Kenilworth.
This year’s theme, ‘Made to Conquer’, encourages the well-heeled to take charge on the grounds and dress for victory in unforgettable stylish, sophisticated and glamorous garb. After all, while tradition and pageantry may constitute the core of the historical horse race, the J&B Met is just as much about ground-breaking haute couture that challenges conventions and celebrates bold attitudes. Or, more simply, it’s about decadence, debauchery and ‘who’ you’re wearing. - Cape Town MagazineView result for J & B MET

A winner, a 2nd place and two 3rd places have come out of the formline
The formline is proving to be very good. More runners are carded: TEE JAY AR and SOLAR TRIPTYCH with a very outside chance for WAR TRAIL.
Please note that this is only one of many HOT formlines. Take your time and find some others. It's the ability to see formlines is what makes Formgrids so special.Link to HOT formline
CHINA BEAR comes in 2nd
As the formline indicated, CHINA BEAR came in a place (2nd). Didn't win but it can still come out to win in the next race. Sure it was the favourite. But the formline shows what will likely come out to win or place regardless of it's favour.
In the formline still keep a watch out for SONNY BILL and TEE JAY AR.The result showing the hot formline

3rd place coming out of the formline posted below
SIROCCO BAY bred by Clifton Stud and trained by St John Gray comes third (a place) from the formline. If a 10th placed horse comes into a place out of a formline and previously we had two winners coming out of the same formline, then we have a really hot formline.
So watch for CHINA BEAR (trained by Alec Laird) and SONNY BILL (trained by Sean Tarry) in their next runs. In either their next run or the one after they look good for a win or a strong place.
Also, don't forget TEE JAY AR (trained by Geoff Woodruff).
Watch these three horses. The formline has foretold you.The HOT formline
Another winner from the HOT formline posted below
TAKUSHI comes out of the formline to win at a starting price of 25/1.
Now look out for CHINA BEAR and TEE JAY AR in their next few runs. Wanna see the hot formline again? See here
