Not Our First Derby…


We are continually blown away by the organic growth we are seeing every day in both our Twitter and Discord communities.

There are new folks that arrive every day here in our exciting little universe, but many of you may not know that we’ve been building authentic, fun, fair, and strategic horse racing games for over 6 years now.

Search the Google Play or Apple App Stores for our previous games!

Our most recent mobile game, Horse Racing Manager, is very much a blueprint for the new game we are building. It has been out since 2018, and approaches the sport from the perspective of being a horse owner (rather than the first game which was more akin to being a jockey). It is in essence a breeding simulation with live races being run every 5 minutes, in a world shared with other players. So, if you’re looking for more info on the new game we are building, here’s some key details on the last one:


  • + Millions of downloads, still maintains 4.6 star rating
  • + It’s been running live for over 3.5 years, 160+ Weekly “Seasons”
  • + Millions and millions and millions of races simulated
  • + Hundreds of millions of horses bred, thousands and thousands of generations deep
  • + Massive amounts of tuning towards authenticity and realism
  • + Proven to be extremely fair and balanced — brand new players can and do come in and win
  • + Strategic decision-making required for successful breeding
  • + Very deep genetics and attributes system for horses
  • + Natural system of horses aging out and retiring keeps players dedicated and challenge fresh
  • + Has a PVE element to play at your own pace


  • – Is a F2P loot-box based game, so therefore big payers can get advantages
  • – Is a bit too difficult to pick up and learn as a casual player
  • – Doesn’t have wagering (Apple / Google)
  • – Doesn’t have real money (Apple / Google)
  • – Doesn’t have Peer to Peer trading / breeding
  • – Graphics are from ~2016 era

So we’re basically looking to improve on the feature set for the new version here while being able to “fix” a few things about it switching it from a closed economy to an open one. We highly recommend reading our Public Roadmap as a quick way to visualize many of the upcoming deliverables for the next 6 to 12 months.

Our Team

Our team of 10 is full of veterans highly experienced at building AAA sports games — we worked for many years at EA Sports, Zynga, and FanDuel, and collectively have worked on 30+ shipped titles. We pride ourselves on authenticity and attention to detail, and have the resume to prove it. There are too many projects in the blockchain space with lofty promises and no track record of delivering, and we don’t want to see our fellow gamers out there get rugged! Here’s a collection of shipped games our team members were a part of:
