Horse Trader

The rules for breeding have changed quite a bit since the last breeding cycle.  Rule changes need to account for a change in strategy.  The old plan of twins is out, and horse trading could take it’s place. One Child Policy We are now working in the one child policy because mares can only have […]

Identical by Descent

Twins and cousin lines are important to the ZedGazette Team (ZGT) breeding theory.  We have highlighted the history of inbreeding IRL when examining Medina Spirit’s pedigree (link) and the importance of creating cousin lines with siblings.  This article will look at the technique “Identical by Descent” used in genetic algorithms. Genetic Algorithms Genetic algorithms are […]

Zed Run Breeding Update

There are many opinions on the recent update to Zed Run’s breeding system. There is a lot to unpack, and I’m sure that my opinion will adjust with new information.  However, at this point I am happy with the simplicity and impact of the current update.  Let’s jump in. Time Breeding and the timeline of […]

Zed Twins Again

We are told by Zed Run that siblings are not able to breed and produce offspring.  To answer a common question asked regarding the inbreeding tests is, “did you learn anything?”.  Yes, we need to redefine siblings.

Twin Hunters

Breeding twins is an important part of exploring Zed Run’s genetic algorithm.  It offers the chance to compare mutation rates and crossover pattern variables.  Additionally, twins offer the chance to create cousin lines of genetic descent.  Collecting twins off the best horses in the game offers new stable ownesr a chance to compete with the […]

Keeping It Exclusive

A question heard form the community often is, how do we value bred horses.  Honestly, it isn’t a science and is determined by the purchasers perceived value.  How do we know how much an offspring from Breathless Edge should cost with 35+ odds?   Is this offspring for collecting, racing, breeding?   This article is to take […]

Breeding Mutants

Mutants are a natural part of evolution, and have helped species grow and diversify overtime.  Similarly, genetic algorithms often require mutation rates to explore all available genomes.  Zed Run has four bloodlines with different populations, and each will a different level of mutation.   Population Size The population size of each bloodline will impact the mutation […]

Why Twins

Previously, we started taking a look at ZG’s breeding theory. For a quick recap, I am bullish on mares being dominant for inheritance of performance DNA, inbreeding is a good thing, and twins are the way to go. This article will take a closer look at why twins are important for all stables.  You can […]
