Borrow a Racehorse for Free!
Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for; the Borrowing market is open for business!
Last week, in a major first for ZED Token utility, we opened the market for phase one of Lending, and saw thousands of racehorses enter the Lending Marketplace within a few days.
Now, anyone can head to https://zed.run/marketplace/borrow to choose from a selection of those racehorses to temporarily call their own for four days of excitement and fun via free and paid racing.
Borrowing a racehorse is a great way for a new player to dip their toes in the water, or for an O.G. player to come back and experience what’s new. Limit is one borrowed racehorse at a time per stable.
This initial phase has been designed with no filters or search in the marketplace to provide opportunities for new players to play with minimal stakes as they learn the game. For players who want to borrow a specific racehorse, watch this space. More details about Borrowing and Lending can be found here.
September Shootout by Zombie Racing
The Zombie Racing tournaments are back for a fun and engaging September series, the September Shootout!
Featuring four tournaments for each week of the month with unique scoring styles, the series aims to maximise fun and give any racehorse or stable a chance to take home some prize money. More info on the events and deadlines can be found here.
All races will be custom tournaments hosted on zed.run, so no need to worry about gaining class points! There are 144 tokens available for purchase on OpenSea.

Swift gifts - our community is the BEST!
One of the best parts of ZED has always been our stellar community, from the tool makers to the content creators to the passionate racehorse owners! This week, we celebrate the generosity of well known stable owner and community member East Coast Stables, who gifted a horse to Swiftdeath8 on Twitter as a random act of kindness to improve a newer stable.
The detail of this heartwarming story can be found on our blog.
