Or is there a lack of 7F/1400 meter Group 1 races on turf.  I can only find 1.

I'm missing all kinds of races.

10K claimers NW 1 in 3 months. That's one.
50K NW 2 in a year. 2K NW 6 months.

These races don't exist.

I think that is correct Crawford. It is the Strand Broke on June 1.

There are 14 computer generated G-1 races for 3YOs at a mile or more in 2019.

ZERO G-1 for 3 YO turf sprinters.   

Most years I don't notice and don't care. This year I care. Hey, as long as this thread is the complaint department ....

Im with you on that, hadn't really noticed until i needed one.  It just seems a little strange as the sim usually mirrors real life races and in my home town Melbourne we have 4 Group 1 races over 7 F.  As usual with my horses i'm getting ahead of myself as its yet to win a group race yet, but its showing potential.....over 7.5F (try finding a group race for that distance Angry)

There are very few grade 1 races in the world at 7f on turf so that is no surprise.

Mike was going to review the stakes schedule you would have hoped the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot a grade 1 3yo race would now run in the sim. It is fast becoming one of the most important races in the Northern hemisphere especially when it comes to stallion duties. I am not sure this says great things about the direction horse racing continues to head.

try finding long distance graded turf races for older fillies.
My turf filly has to run on dirt.

the graded and stakes schedules in the sim leave a lot to be desired in my opinion.I'm all for slotting in real world races but just make a schedule that is balanced and caters for all distances and surfaces and ages and sexes for the whole season whether it is based on a real race or not.It's a game and more attention should be paid to the details then has been historically. there should be 4.5 F stakes and graded stakes for example.Mike really is dropping the ball in this regard.
