ZED of Origin Game 3
The final round of ZED of Origin took place last week, and it was the NSW team that came out on top! (Reverse result to the State of Origin, where Queensland took out the series!).
The NSW win completes a jarring comeback after the squad tied the series 1-1 with a 123-97 win in Game 2. A full breakdown of the series results can be found here.
Congratulations to Team NSW, and thank you to all the stables that participated in this stellar event.
The third episode of ZED Center debuted last week, with topics including ZED Token, GVG Genetics retirement, and a chat with East Coast Stables.

ZED Racer Adds Stable Activity Heatmap
We can not stress this enough – no community rivals the ZED RUN community. Exhibit 5000 being ZED Racer, and their new stable activity heatmap that indicates how active, and when, your rivals are on the racetracks.
Now, ZED Headz can study their opponents and plan accordingly, not unlike an NFL team does all week in the lead-up to Sunday. When we say ZED RUN is a game of skill, this is what we’re talking about.
DanShan Twitter Spaces
Pac Protocol Racing joined DanShan last week to talk about his racehorse Perfect Cadence and past, present, and future strategy. DanShan also welcomed Arbitrage Racing on the show to chat about a variety of topics, including the launch of his website, Arbitrage.run.
If you missed the chat, give it a listen.
Bruce Buffer sends GVG Genetics off right
GVG – one of ZED RUN’s biggest and most respected stable owners – recently decided to downsize his stable, and the ZED RUN community sent him out in the only way it should be done – in VIP fashion.
While we hope to see GVG around again in the near future, we wish him all the best and thank him for being a mainstay A1 ZED Head since day one.
