StableDuel Launches Daily Paid Entry Contests Blending Fantasy Sports, Handicapping

StableDuel, Thoroughbred racing’s revolutionary new game that combines the excitement of daily fantasy sports with the thrill of traditional handicapping, officially launches  Friday, July 3, with daily paid entry contests. Contestants can begin setting up their stables immediately..

Featuring an interactive platform that provides players a feeling of virtual ownership, StableDuel contests require contestants to select a stable of horses from a specific race card within the confines of a salary cap. Horses are assigned a price (or salary) based on their morning-line odds. Players earn points when their horse finishes in the top five places, based on the order of finish and the margin of victory or defeat.

In addition to daily contests, StableDuel offers players an annual leaderboard competition with selective year-end contests.  StableDuel will feature diverse media content for racing fans as well as sports fans alike, with podcasts, social media, and video to educate fans on handicapping. Industry leaders such as seven-time Eclipse Award-winning trainer Todd Pletcher and leading jockey Tyler Gaffalione have signed on to partner with StableDuel.

“We are extremely excited to launch StableDuel.  “It has been a long process that was done with the player in mind,” said StableDuel’s Chris Brothers. “It has always been a belief for us that you cannot force someone to like a sport, but if you can get them to like a game that revolves around the sport, there is a better chance they will become a fan.  Between exciting daily contests, the media content, and an interactive platform, we feel StableDuel will be the hub of innovation bridging mainstream sports with the Thoroughbred racing world.”

To get started, contestants simply download the StableDuel app for iOS and Android, create an account in a few simple steps, and draft a stable. StableDuel is intuitive, innovative, and designed for novices and veterans, alike.

StableDuel currently has partnerships with more than 20 racetracks in the United States.

“As people that have worked all levels within the industry, we know the many roles needed to make this happen and are very thankful for the tracks and horsemen groups that have welcomed us with open arms,” Brothers said. “Knowing it is not an easy space to occupy, we look forward to a long and valuable relationship.”
