Game of Silks – Reflections  Weeks of 9/11/23 & 9/18/23

September 25, 2023

By 2YO EdgeMan

We are thrilled to bring you a two week update to cover the last couple of weeks in the exciting Game of Silks. For those of you who are not yet familiar with this game, I encourage you to check it out at  The volume of the buzz surrounding this fantastic, fantasy horse racing game that pays out real rewards to owners that have a digital ‘twin’ of a real live thoroughbred horse that finishes ‘in the money’ is getting louder and louder. The people that are involved and that have ‘minted’ a horse are fired up – they are having a blast and enjoy seeing ETH flowing into their accounts as their stable of runners does well.

Back on 9/13/23, Kentucky Downs hosted the 6 ½ furlong, $500,000 Pepsi Untapable Stakes for 2YO fillies to conclude their last day of racing this meet and year. Yes, you read that right! $500,000, or said a different way – $1/2 million dollars. Silks owners get 10% of the payouts of the real race!  Anyway, it was a tremendous event. Although Candi Girl, with odds of 7/1, led for the first half mile of the race, Buttercream Babe had caught and passed her by the head of the stretch. However, she would have to deal with a hard closing Crown Imperial, ridden by Ricardo Santana, Jr. who was gathering a big head of steam. At the end, the John Ortiz trained Crown Imperial was the victor, scoring by 1 ¼ lengths. She paid a whopping $29.46 to the lucky patrons that put $2 win on her and brought home $294,150 to her ‘real life’ owner – 4 G Racing, LLC. But the real winner was the owner of this filly in the Game of Silks – One Eyed Dog Stables. Their reward for the win was a massive 1.8294 ETH!  Congratulations – and to add to that, I am awarding One Eyed Dog Stables my coveted ‘Game of Silks Owner of the Week(s)’
