New Game Features – Summer 2013

We are pleased to highlight the new game features in the latest release of Blazing Silks!

1. Multiple Horse Ownership

Now you have the opportunity to have up to 8 horses in your stable. You can either earn horses in special challenges or buy them from the market. Each one of your horses is unique, and you can train them to be either an all-rounder, a distance runner, or a proficient sprinter. There are separate “horse levels” that you can complete to increase their ranking and rating and fulfill the game objectives. Don’t forget that you can race any of your horses against your friends in match racing!


2. Free Champion Horse Cards

Once you have won the Breeder’s Cup at the Santa Anita track, you can make a free prediction on a classic champion in a special challenge race. If your chosen horse wins, you can add the horse to your stable for free!If your chosen champion loses the race, you will get a consolation prize.

You can also unlock champion horses by inviting friends to the game. If you invite 5 friends to the game then you can choose a champion horse. Thereafter every time you add 10 friends you can choose another champion horse card for free!


3. New Training Regimens – Horse Pathways

A “Horse Training Pathway” is a training regimen designed to specialize your horse for different kinds of racing. By choosing a pathway, a unique set of game challenges will determine preferable race distances and surfaces for your horse in the future. Every time you add a new horse to your stable you have the opportunity to choose a “pathway”. New horses can be added to your stable by breeding, earning them in special challenges, buying them from the market, or earning them when you invite friends! So you can build a stable of sprinters, distance runners, or a mixture of abilities and earn your place on the leaderboards!


These are the different training regimens you can select:

Super Horse:

Super Horses have the same performance on any track conditions, improve at your discretion and train the best champion ever!

Sprint Dirt:

Quick acceleration on dirt tracks allows you to run these horses pretty fast and hit the finish line at the max speed!

Sprint Turf:

Quick acceleration on dirt tracks allows you to run these horses pretty fast and hit the finish line at the max speed!

Distance Dirt:

These horses have strong stamina to keep running long distances at high speed even on dirt surfaces!

Distance Turf:

These horses have strong stamina to keep running long distances at high speed especially on turf tracks!

4. Player and Horse Level

With the advent of multi-horse support the game now distinguishes between horse and player level. Each horse starts at level 1 and progresses through a series of challenges and races gaining experience points as it goes. A level distinguishes how many experience points your horse has earned.

The player level is your character’s level, as you play you earn coins and progress up the leader board, as you increase in levels you can gain more special items and the opportunity to unlock new tracks and challenges.



5. Horse Lifecycle

At the beginning of the game, your horse comes to you as a young and untrained 2-year old horse. As you progress in the game, your horse will be trained and its racing abilities in the track will be enhanced. Your horse will travel all around the world to become a great champion, but this will take time and effort that will, eventually, degrade his performance. You can keep your horse in good condition by meeting its daily food and sometimes medical needs. But once your horse reaches level 9, it will turn 4 years old and it will be past its prime. Then you will have the chance to retire your horse and use it to breed a new champion.


6. Breeding Horses

Once your horse is retired, you can use it to breed new champion horses. By breeding your own horses you are able to breed your own line of champions by careful selection from your own stable and famous champion horses.

When you buy some food for your horse, or you get a food or an energy “gift” from any of your friends, those items are stored in the Store House. Here you will find your items,how many of them you have availableand the maximum amount of each item that you can have.
