The anime is based on a game by Cygames that was supposed to come out in 2018 with the anime. But the game was then delayed to an unknown release date. Recently, Cygames have come out with a release date set for the third quarter of 2020 for the android and ios apps.
During these delays, the game company has been busy spanning out the series with manga spinoffs, like Starting Gate: Uma Musume Pretty Derby, Uma Musume Pretty Derby: Haru Urara Ganbaru!
And, of course, Umayon, the manga that the recent Umayon anime spinoff is based on.
