The 37th season of virtual horse racing started with a bang for players at Digiturf.com on April 1, 2013, and it continues through July 31, 2013.

The popular horse racing website has literally put the cart before the horse by announcing some dramatic new enhancements that have the virtual community chomping at the proverbial bit to start racing as fast as possible in the new season. Trainers usually begin each season by buying new horses and training them up for the most lucrative races where they think their horses will be most competitive.

Digiturf.com have just launched an enhanced new Sales Ring where trainers can buy better horses, and more of them, plus they get an additional three free horses if they make a bulk purchase of ten horses. Trainers get better quality horses and they get better value. More horses allow trainers more racing opportunities because each horse has its own genetic preference for turf or dirt tracks over a choice of nine distances. Your wife might see a pair of shoes that she likes and want one in every colour, at Digiturf.com, trainers see a horse that they like and they want one for every track, distance and going.

You can never have too many virtual horses because Digiturf.com has such a diverse racing program that caters for all types of horses. The Grade 1 races start from a $10 entry fee for Maiden races and increases up to $30 for the qualifiers in the Championship Series. To enter those races you need a strategic game plan that allows you to win as much money as possible without incurring penalties which could lead to your horses carrying more weight in their races. If you can get your horses qualified for the Championship Series then you are eligible to win your share of the $320,000 sponsorships Digiturf.com allocates to each season, of which there are three virtual horse racing seasons per calendar year.

Digiturf.com have also introduced a new $1 entry fee for their Grade 3 races where weaker horses can compete against each other without having so much money on their back. They're mass-market races for the player who just wants to have fun racing his horses without the competitiveness of the Grade 1 races. You can also earn bonus credits in the Grade 3 races which can be spent buying more horses or performance enhancing equipment from Digiturf.com's Tack Shop. They sell everything from racing shoes, blinkers, and even gelding equipment. You can even buy new racing silks when you think your virtual jockeys need a wardrobe makeover befitting your success as a virtual horse trainer.

The virtual horse racing community has just recently participated in Digiturf.com's seasonal yearling sale. Yearlings are considered to be the best financial investment any trainer who is serious about virtual horse racing can make when it comes to building a competitive stable. Yearlings get a head start on their training, so they're ready to start racing from the first day of the new season, and they get free stabling, feed and training. A well trained horse is also the most competitive, so training yearlings as soon as possible is ideal.

If you're a horse racing enthusiast who has always wanted to own your own horses then Digiturf.com is just for you. You get your virtual race horses but it is your responsibility to train them to be as competitive as possible to compete to become the ultimate virtual horse racing champion.

There's over $320,000 sponsorships awaiting you this season if you do join Digiturf.com today … and you'll be missing a whole lot of fun if you don't!
