ON THE TRACK WITH NEWPORT BEACH STABLES
This week we got together with Newport Beach Stables! They took the time to answer our questions and give some great advice for new stable owners!
Here is the interview!
Q – What Is Your Stable Name?
We have three stables all apart of the “Newport Beach” brand.
As you could guess, we were established in Newport Beach and all our horses reside in the Newport meadows.
The racing stable name is Newport Beach Stables.
Our female stable name is Newport Beach Breeding.
Our male stable name is Newport Beach Stallions.
We currently own 123 horses between our three stables.
To date (9/29/21), we have won 481 races. In addition, we have placed second 452 times and third 408 times for a total of 786 races shown.
We have a 11.21% win rate and have earned over 2 ETH in profit.
Q – When Did You Start In Zed?
We would like to shout out to Top Shot. We went heavy into Top Shot in early February and saw some tweets about a digital horse racing platform.
Having played the Dave & Buster’s horse racing game growing up, this was something we knew we had to check out.
We were lucky to get a few genesis horses in the March drop and have been addicted ever since!
Our proudest achievement in Zed has been reaching a double-digit win percentage.
We started our stable in March and couldn’t even get a free win no matter what we raced!
Eventually, we turned around our stable’s 4% win rate into the 11.21% win rate it is today! We are very proud of that!
On another note, our worst/proudest achievement was breeding Steph Curry and selling him unraced for .075.
We still have both parents and have bred them every cycle since hoping to make another!
Q – What Is Your Primary Focus In ZED? Breeding, Racing, or Selling?
We are focused on breeding, racing, and selling as you can tell from the three different stables we manage.
We are still in the process of splitting our horses into their respective stable. For instance, we aim to split them by Males, Females, and Racers.
The breeding for profit model is slowly becoming unprofitable due to recent changes in the market. Thus, we are looking at exotic niches to sell unraced foals.
For example: Z11 Legendary or Exclusive Buterins, z7 Legendary Finneys, ect. Basically whatever the market needs we look to provide!
Q – How Many Hours A Week Do You Dedicate To ZED?
We currently spend about 40 hours a week on Zed Run.
As our stable grows, we anticipate that the hours we spend per week will grow as well!
Q – What Is Your Favorite Horse You Own And Why Do You Love It?
My favorite horse is a Z9 Buterin Genesis: Speeding Bullet.
First of all, the name is extremely fitting. Second of all, this was my best horse early on and earned me the funds to build out my stable.
According to LIR Rankings, he is the 59th best horse in the game!
Q – What Advice Would You Give To Someone Starting A ZED Stable Now?
If you’re starting out in Zed, we would recommend having two stables. You’ll want to buy a male and female of the same genotype for those stables.
By having one horse in each stable, you can breed foals for a 54% discount.
This is a cheap way to start and grow a stable.
Q – Who Is Someone You Respect In The Zed Community And Why?
Steppe Stable and the Blood Tool discords are the best learning platforms for Zed Run.
The discussions and arguments in the discord group have really opened my eyes to the different strategies and ways to play Zed.
Q – What Are Your Thoughts About The Blood Tool And Why Did You Buy it?
The blood tool is complete game changer in the way we breed at Newport Beach Stables.
Our strategy used to be breeding the lowest z numbers.
Overtime, and from the Blood Tool that has evolved to breeding the best base ability horses with the best base ability horses.
We can’t fully explain how the tool works, but only that we wouldn’t be where we are today without it.
Q – Where Will ZED Be 24 Months From Today?
24 Months from today we see ZED as its own sporting league with customizable races.
We expect Zed to also have different NFT race-tracks that are sponsored by large companies.
Eventually, we could even see a race that has a higher purse than the Kentucky Derby!
Q – If You Could Change One Thing About Zed What Would It Be And Why?
We wish they built out their own blockchain network early on.
Polygon currently has issues which causes problems in Zed which they have no control over.
We are bullish long-term and with high growth products like Polygon & Zed this is par for the course.
Q – What Is One Secret You Hate To Give Away But Will Tell Us About Your ZED Strategy?
One secret about Zed is the double stable strategy.
We mentioned it earlier, but we really want new comers to pay attention to this trick.
By having females and males in separate stables, you will be able to save 54% on breeding fees which is a huge way to save money in breeding!
If you are not taking advantage of this trick, then you are just wasting money monthly.
Q – Any Last Comments?
Zed will be around for as long the technology we have has been around.
This game is meant to last over 1,000 years and is a great substitute for the horrible industry of horse racing currently.
