Crown Weekly: Road to the Roses


The Road to the Kentucky Derby is underway, and so is the final stretch to another eventful and successful season at Photo Finish™ LIVE!

We’ve seen new major contenders enter the fray, the debut of new shows from community content creators, and a rapidly evolving racing and breeding ecosystem beginning to flourish on the cusp of another Foal’s Day.

Season 12 has been filled with everything we could have hoped for. Let’s set the stage for the final week.

The Hangover Cup

This past Sunday, the DeStables boys, Fdawg and Aaron, debuted a new Photo Finish™ activation — The Hangover Cup.

Nothing cures a hard night out the following day like some coffee, a big greasy breakfast, a shot of whiskey, and some live-streaming Photo Finish™ races.

If you missed the debut of the Hangover Cup stream that aired live on X, catch the replay here.

Welcome: Zedge Joins PFL

Nearly 4,000 new Photo Finish™ stables have been created in 2024, but none more impactful than that of one that joined the fray just ten days ago — Celtic Monke Racing, owned by a player that goes by Zedge_jpeg on X.

Want to learn more about why Zedge estimates he has invested over $500,000 in Photo Finish™ LIVE in just the last two weeks? Read the full story in the community blog.

Monday Mayhem 

‘Eight races with a 2,000 $DERBY horse pick subsidy added? That should get your week off to a good start! 

In Photo Finish™ LIVE, there are no weekends. But if there were anything close to resembling a break, it would be Sunday, the day following each week’s Major Race. 

We don’t take kindly to ‘breaks’ around here, so to ensure each Monday re-ignites a fire under our collective asses, we cooked up Monday Mayhem, another Doughboy wagering joint. 

Don’t have a case of Mondays. Get involved in the Mayhem here

DoughBoy After Dark

If you’re new here – and, judging by the number, many of you are – you should get acquainted with two of the juiciest and sexiest words in all of Photo Finish – After Dark.

After Dark takes place twice a week – once on Tuesday night, hosted live on Twitch by DoughBoy, and on Friday night, live on Kick with Mo Knowz and Fib. 

What is After Dark? It’s your chance to grab horse picks by the tail and yank the $DERBY they offer back into your account, all condensed into the two most potent wager-heavy nights of action Photo Finish™ has to provide weekly.

The action kicks off this Tuesday with DoughBoy After Dark.

Road to the Kentucky Derby

If you want to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. That goes for any competition, but it’s particularly true when reaching the pinnacle of horse racing — the Kentucky Derby — and its virtual counterpart.

The Road to the Kentucky Derby is off and running, with plenty of time to collect enough qualifying points to secure your spot amongst this season’s 20 participants.

There is no bigger race at Photo Finish™ LIVE. And there certainly is no more significant event in web3 gaming that bridges an IRL event into the virtual realm.

Click here to view all the qualifying races and spend this week securing your spot in web3 gaming history, and don’t forget to tune-in this Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. for the live stream of the big race!
