On Monday, March 14, twelve monster stables entered a Charity Tournament called "For the Kids" with an entry price of 1.5 ETH benefiting Extra Life, a fundraising program of @CMNHospitals, which unites people around the world to play games and #ChangeKidsHealth.
Each stable submitted a sprinter, mid-runner, and marathoner to compete in a Fibonacci-style, three-race tournament. With a total pool of 18 ETH, each race split a pool of 4.5 ETH with normal ZED winning allocation of 60/25/15% on respective placements.
The sprint featured an absolutely beast field, with Billions, Secret Strategy, and Blood Duchess taking flames. After a few early breaks, One More Tisha and Final Wave jumped out to a brief lead. With about 400m left Stylish Criminal made a strong break, but Pearly Tour ended up on the good end of the variance with an electric last 300m to win by .771 seconds. This win by Pearly Tour placed Arbitrage Racing at the top of the leaderboard after one race at 89 total points.
After Evergreen Gates also pulled out at A run at 1600 mid-distance, Arbitrage secured their first place spot and 2.7 ETH total prize. Unbeknown of Know Your Horses x Dingaling pulled out a great variance run at the lower end of mid-preference with a 2nd place finish, pulling Know Your Horses to second overall after two races and sitting roughly 20 points ahead of third place Mr. and Mrs. Roid Rager Racing.
