With a new banner refresh that will last until 12 September 2022, we have the addition of a new alt in the form of Grand Live Smart Falcon to the Uma Musume stable. It is worth noting that you can still roll for Copano Rickey who will remain as a rate up character until 29 August 2022.

For whatever reason we have just been bestowed two dirt horsegirls back to back, although this time around it is an alt of an existing cast member. In any case, let us run through what Grand Live Smart Falcon has to offer. Just like her vanilla version, Smart Falcon excels as a dirt runner for mile and medium distance tracks, although with a bit of tweaking you can field her for shorter tracks too. Just about all her abilities grant you speed boosts, with the exception of Full of Zeal and its upgraded version, Aim for the Center! With a 20% and 10% training bonus in speed and guts, respectively, this version of Smart Falcon will be very easy to train. Her unique character skill which grants her a speed boost and heal should prove fairly useful as well. It is hard to gauge how good of this alt will be over the vanilla version, so if you do not already have it, Grand Live Smart Falcon might be worth considering. However if you somehow got Copano Rickey, you could probably give her a skip.
