We’ve reached the mid-way point of Season 7, a season that thus far has featured so much but still has the best yet to come.
From increased racing and wagering juice to rising sales and news coverage, while many watch floors, Photo Finish™ is searching for a ceiling, with no sign yet.
Let’s take a look back at Week 2 of Season 7.

Photo Finish™ Featured in Our Network Mega Issue
Photo Finish™ was recently featured in the OurNetwork Mega Issue newsletter as one of 23 Solana teams building an industry-leading product.
The entry mentions that Photo Finish™ LIVE players had purchased $2.64 million in racehorses and nominated $2.44 million in race entry fees as of its publishing. It also provided readers with an abbreviated elevator pitch look at the tokenomics system we’ve all come to adore and the game’s rapid overall growth.
What an honor to be included in this detailed data-focused breakdown of some of Solana’s best.
Solanaut Stables Nears $150,000 in Breeding Fees
Whenever a Photo Finish™ player makes news, we want to ensure the world hears about it. And we feel confident that Solanaut Stables securing a $144,000 breeding fee bag this early into PFL history is damn sure newsworthy.

Featured Racehorse Sale
At least a handful of times a week, there are racehorse sales that pop up in the sales-bot channel in Discord that turn us all into the blinking meme guy. But this week, one had us rubbing our eyes to ensure it was real.
Wolaf Farms let go of his high-quality S Filly, La Fantasma, for a cool 1,000,000 $DERBY. That’s right – $12,500 United States of America dollars.
Congrats to 360WIN on the extraordinary purchase, and the overall behemoth of a stable they have put together.

La Jolla Farms surpassed two incredible racing milestones over the weekend — 500 career wins, and 4 million in $DERBY earnings.
Both of those feats would be noteworthy in their own right, but they adequately put into focus how dominant La Jolla has been on the tracks.
Congrats to La Jolla on a dominant first few seasons!

After Dark: Mo and Fib
The twice-a-week After Dark series continues its upward trend, with more and more stables vying for the juiced purses and getting involved in the horse pick action.
As has been the case, this past week featured Dough Boy throwing it down on Tuesday night for some wagering-intensive commentary, followed by the grand finale Thursday night edition starring everyone’s favorite race caller, Mo Knowz, and Community Manager Fib.
If you missed any of the action and can’t get enough of the PFL Primetime, go back and soak in the replay before his week’s races.
If you’re new to Photo Finish™ and wondering where is the best place to start diving into the analytical side of the game, look no further than MJ Gaming, which offers both third-party tools and content that gives fellow players an added edge.
This week, MJ’s ‘Across the Board’ focused on how track preferences impact performances, a vital part of the gameplay, and what makes Photo Finish™ so realistic.

⛵️ $2,000 Harbor Classic
🆓 Entry Major Races. Big Prizes. Every Saturday.
— Photo Finish™ LIVE 🌹 🐎 Virtual Horse Racing (@photofinishgame) October 8, 2023
The Saturday Carnival went off with a bang, with the grand finale, the $2,000 Harbor Classic, kicking out of the gates at 7 p.m. Early indications were Pocono Racing’s horse Kan Kan Pork Chop would be the favorite to take down the race, but in the end, Michael Collins from the Gap Data boys dominated on its way to the $940 payday.
Congrats to everyone who clinched a spot in the free entry race and everyone who took home a share of the $2,000 up for grabs.
