Crown Weekly: Off and Running

If this past week indicated the pace at which Photo Finish™ will make news, 2024 will be one hell of a year.

From alliances with one of the biggest crypto influencers to collaborations with one of Solana's premier tokens, it's tough to believe last week was just a week.

And we haven't even yet mentioned what happened on the tracks or in the breeding barn.

Some weeks require more of a review than others. Last week was one of those weeks. Scroll down, refresh your memory, and prepare yourself for another week of horse business.

Coming Soon: Bonk x Photo Finish™

When Ryan and Bryce alluded to it being a newsy week for Photo Finish™ on last Monday's Spaces, they weren't kidding.

First came Becker, then came Bonk. Three weeks into 2024, the Business and Marketing team is already making moves to raise awareness and take Photo Finish™ to the next level. 

The trailer was adorable, but the race will be for real money and massively reach exposure. More details soon.

Meet Exoticus, the First SS- 

Season 11's Foal's Day introduced over 4,000 new thoroughbreds into the Photo Finish™ world, but none with more fanfare than that of a new legend – Exoticus, the first-ever SS-horse. 

Behind the historic achievement is the team at Elder Racing. We recently had a chance to catch up with them and chat to understand their reaction to being at the center of this monumental moment in Photo Finish™ history and their plans for the horse.

Rising Stars Weekend

The Rising Stars Weekend brought $14,000 in free entry races, and the best up-and-coming soon-to-be-Derby-contenders Photo Finish™ has to offer.

We all knew that was happening, though. It happens every season like clockwork, only the purse prizes and rewards get bigger, and bigger.

What was a startling surprise was the fact that a combined over $4,000 was dumped into the pick pools across the four races. That was a shocker, and another sign horse picks are on the come-up.

Congrats to the Rising Stars winners below:

  • Virgin Julep Derby: Ciara (Ted Racing)
  • New Olympian Cup: Even More Jazz (GD Stable)
  • Dinghy Classic: Costa (JPeg Lord Stables)
  • Third Grade Championship: Bubble Rose (Ted Racing)
