Crown Prep Weekly: Valley Happy Stables Wins The Third Time Derby!


In PFL terms, the calm because the storm is one last weekend of Beta 2 racing before things transition to real money-only Beta 3.

Thanks to our incredible community, the calm wasn’t actually calm at all, and in fact, featured one of the closest 20-horse Third Time Derby races ever, and a Crown Prep Sprint Series slate with lots of new names.

Before we move on to bigger and better things, let’s take one last glimpse at the rear-view mirror and put a neat little bow on last Saturday’s action.

Third Time Derby Champion: Valley Happy Stables | Infiniti Quays

You know what they say – where there’s a will, there’s an Infiniti Quays!

If it seems as of late that a different stable has been winning the Third Time Derby title, that’s because that’s precisely what’s been happening.

For the fourth straight week, a new stable has won the race of all races, yet another testament to our community, and the variety and skill involved in competing at PFL.

Congratulations, Valley Happy!

Crown Prep Sprint Series Scorecard

Another week, and another nearly completely full Crown Prep Sprint Series slate!

Of the 240 available gates in this week’s Crown Prep, only 8 remained vacant when the bells rang — that’s impressive for what was considered a bit of an in-between week before Beta 3 kicks in the door and announces itself to the PFL world.

Thanks again to everyone in the community for showing up and showing out for a weekend of season-ending fun. With Beta 3 on the horizon, you can bet the Crown Prep races are about to get that much more intense.
