StableDuel, a racing fantasy game, officially launches Friday, July 3, with daily paid entry contests. Contestants can begin setting up their stables immediately in preparation.
Featuring an interactive platform that provides players a feeling of virtual ownership, StableDuel contests require contestants to select a stable of horses from a specific race card within the confines of a salary cap. Horses are assigned a price (or salary) based on their morning-line odds. Players earn points when their horse finishes in the top five places, based on the order of finish and the margin of victory or defeat. In addition to daily contests, StableDuel offers players an annual leaderboard competition with selective year-end contests.
“We are extremely excited to launch StableDuel. It has been a long process that was done with the player in mind,” said StableDuel’s Chris Brothers. “It has always been a belief for us that you cannot force someone to like a sport, but if you can get them to like a game that revolves around the sport, there is a better chance they will become a fan. Between exciting daily contests, the media content, and an interactive platform, we feel StableDuel will be the hub of innovation bridging mainstream sports with the Thoroughbred racing world.”
