First off, I'm going to extend breeding at least an hour today.  There's a lot of new sire blood getting infused into the sim.. gotta love that!
 
Also, a new rule on admission into graded races for all horses 3 years and older (including 3yo only races):
 
Begining week 4022, entry into graded races will get a bit tougher.
 
To gain entry into a G1, a horse will have to have at least 16 stakes points in the division the race is, or 64 overall.
 
To gain entry into a G2, a horse will have to have at least 8 stakes points in the division the race is, or 32 overall.
 
To gain entry into a G3, a horse will have to have at least 4 stakes points in the division the race is, or 16 overall.
 
Update :  For 3YO ONLY races that are run before July, the points listed in the section immediately above are halved.
 
Update #2 : Filly and mare races should be halved as well, since they earn points in these races half as fast.  So a 3 YO Filly race in June would be 1/4 of the listed points.  Sorry about that.
 
These rules override the other rules already in place, meaning if your horse cannot hit this benchmark, it will NOT be allowed entry into the graded race.  As you can tell, these are very, very easy hurdles for any stakes quality horse to clear.  The primary objective is to keep non-stakes level horses out of the sim's elite races.  This may be 100% effective, but it should help greatly.
