Bridging the gap between celebrities and fans
ZED RUN, has teamed up with Triple C, Henry Cejudo, a dominant force in the world of MMA and a true icon for fans around the globe. Henry’s now bringing his passion for competition and excellence to the world of ZED RUN - maybe you even raced against him in the Maidens this week!
Passionate about the game during his downtime, Cejudo has been hitting the tracks competing with fans in the recent maidens.
Which leads us to the ZED RUN x Henry Cejudo giveaway. One lucky fan will win two tickets to UFC 288, a meet-and-greet with Henry and $2,000 USD towards travel/accommodation to Newark on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
Thanks to Smiley Joe Lear for connecting the dots!
Maiden Stakes Recap
After a bumpy start, we had yet another exciting Maiden Stakes run this week from April 11-13. With a staggering $81K USD prize pool, the community hit the racetrack to compete for their share of the pot!
The format of the tournament was Fibonacci scoring (for all the variance lovers out there) with anywhere from 12 to 96 horses qualifying per funnel depending on class.
After taking down a final and semi-final, Blockchain Bloodline details their experience breeding and racing for the Maiden Stakes here in a blog post:
Below are just a few of our community members out of many more celebrating their Maiden victories:

ZED RUN Origin Story
I got into ZED RUN pretty naturally, LOL. In the spring of 2021, I was in an NFT gaming discord and told someone, a horse racing NFT game would be so cool. They responded, “Have you heard of ZED RUN?”. I spent the last part of May doing ZED RUN research online and a lot of watching homepage races, but hadn’t yet joined the discord.
I did find a bunch of YouTube videos and bought my first horse in early June. This was sometime just after the Echo Drop, (Group 4) which I missed out on, but I won a MDD (MIllion Dollar Drop) horse, and have kept trying to learn ever since.
Favourite Part of ZED RUN
I’m big into community support, and 3rd party platforms. I own a Blood Tool, am a Grandfather member of Zedge, and probably have subbed for both Zed Racer and SN-Pro for most of my career. Recently I got roped into helping out with a brand named Zed Hustle. It’s not a tool like the others, just a community of ZED RUN players that play and talk ZED 24/7. I thought it might be fun producing ZED RUN content and interviewing stables, so I’ve started to do just that. You can watch our debut here.
My favourite part of ZED RUN is breeding and looking at stats on 3rd party sites, 100 percent.
Advice you would give to someone who wants to join ZED RUN
I would tell them to buy the cheapest horse on Hawku and run it all over the place while they start cracking the ZED RUN books. Everything I’ve learned from all the community members along the way is priceless to me. I look at ZED RUN like I do the game of NL Poker, it seems totally simple on the surface, but it’s not.
Zed Hustle: Interview with Suspkt Stables
A brand new community-made show hit the scene this month focusing on interviewing stables as well as showing exciting highlights from ZED RUN!
