ZED RUNdown Edition 12

You know the drill, ZED Headz. We’ve reached the end of another whirlwind week with a slew of community news and product updates to share, so let’s cut the small talk and get to the good stuff.


Remember back in January when we celebrated the one-millionth lifetime race at ZED RUN? Remember the video documenting our journey leading to that point? 

Yeah, about that. 

Folks, we are now approaching the midway point to our two-millionth race. That escalated quickly!

To date, ZED RUN has now paid out nearly $36 million USD in prize pool earnings, and we’re only just getting started. Huge thanks to our incredible community for continuing to ride shotgun as we continue to build.

Product and Roadmap Update

To enable the Product team to deliver on the scope set out for 2022, we’ll be transitioning to monthly product updates. But don’t worry, we got ya. As progress is made, it’ll be captured here in the ZED RUNdown.

Recent updates: 

  • The Stud Farm was paused last week due to the discovery of a bug. Breeding has since been reopened, and you are once again free to procreate at your pleasure. Further details are available in the Announcements channel of our Discord.
  • A comprehensive Q1 check-in on our 2022 roadmap will be published in the coming week. We’re excited to take a moment to pause and celebrate what has been delivered so far and what’s yet to come. 
  • Conditional racing has begun to roll out for racehorses with 0% and < 5% Win Rates. As we test this new racing feature conditional races will be of the $2.50 entry fee variety.

Content Creators 

The ZED RUN community never ceases to amaze us. Whether diligently studying the game, grinding out an edge on the racetrack, or breeding strategically, content creators continually produce some incredible events.

The latest example of our community going above and beyond is the #ZEDMadness event organizer by numerous members of the ZED RUN community, including Zombie Racing, Award Racing, Pony Zook, and, of course, @ZEDDraft

Make sure to follow them and keep tabs on all the excitement as their bracket challenge crowns a winner. 

Community Milestones 

We love to celebrate any time we catch wind of a community member accomplishing big things on the racetrack. A huge congratulations to Pixie’s Paddock on their stables 3,000th-lifetime win! 

Winning a lot of races is one thing, but coming in first at a nearly 12-percent clip is quite another. Check out Pixie’s Paddock and follow them on Twitter for their insight and tips on how to race successfully.
