About SimRacing

The SimRacing platform was built in conjunction with horse owners, breeders, trainers, jockeys, handicappers and patrons of horse racing.

The unique user experience is unmatched by any other virtual game on the market offering Real-time 3D texture-rich animated races.

The SimRacing virtual world is the heart of the game. Elray has re-created the world of live horse racing down to every element from breeding, bloodlines, speed rating and track conditions adding an element of skill and this all resulting in an engaging real life experience.

SimRacing has over 7 years of history including 400,000 horses that have been bred through the characteristic profiling and historical performance of the parents and grandparents. The virtual blood-lining process ensures that horses are unique by taking on the running style and characteristics bred into them by their virtual parents. Some horses will be afraid of the getting to close to the rail, some will lead the race and the fall off, while others will come from behind. All of the excitement you expect to see in live horse racing. Based on these bloodlines and work outs, horses gravitate to different classes that they will compete in, moving up or down in class depending on their race results. This promotes organic behavior and produces a real horse racing experience.

As of March 14, 2014, the Company has approximately 51,381,487 common shares issued and outstanding.
