Zed Files: Psyduck

Community Submissions Zed Files

**Zed-Files is a series that takes a deep-dive into the ancestry of some of the most successful bred horses currently racing on Zed.run. The idea is to learn from these superstars of the track to assist in creating the next champion of your own.**

It takes a legend of a horse to consistently have 0 class points yet be one of the better horses in the game. Psyduck is a Z27 Elite Buterin colt that has one of the nicest looking U-Shapes in all of Zed.run. 268 12th place finishes have earned this horse -1,072 rating points in 24% of his more than 1100 races. The Ricky Bobby of racing has been outside of Class 5 for only 131 of his 1,336 races.

The Family Tree

Psyduck has a massively tilted family tree with his father being a Z10 Genesis and his mother a Z17 Elite. Marching Orders, Psyduck’s father is a decent racer with 33 wins in 319 starts with major success in Class 5. He’s certainly not a dominant horse by any measure, but he’s much more a racer than not. The mother, YinYang, is a straight breeder. Just 11 races in her career with sub 20 odds only in the Griffin. She never finished higher than 4th and pulled +40 odds in 5 of the 11 races.
 
Her lineage looks like an elite stable in Zed.run though. 7 Z1’s and a Z10 make up the 8 horses that led to Psyduck’s mother. Oddly though, again, the tree keeps leaning massively one way. Psyduck’s grandmother, like his father, is a Z10 Genesis. Catch A Glimpse is even less a racer than the other Z10 in Psyduck’s pedigree though. This horse is an 0’fer, not winning a single race in 49 tries and never even coming in 2nd. Plus, most of them were free races.

There’s certainly something to keep an eye on with the majorly slanted tree. Is it beneficial to breed from Genesis parents on one side and Legendary, Exclusive, and Elite on the other? Psyduck seems to indicate that answer is yes, but this is Zed.run, where anomalies become champions. Otherwise, the only other concept we can pull from is the glut of Z1’s. I mean 7 is greater than 2, and in the end, Psyduck is greater than 99% of Z2 Legendaries too.

As for the rest of the ancestry of Psyduck, they’re all Z1’s. The most successful is Green Arcadia who won twice in 14 races with sub 8 odds consistently. The rest are basically nobodies. Collectively they sound like they could be members of the GloboGym Dodgeball team, but Venom, Striker, Corona, Triple AAA, Jon Snow, and Better With Bacon were all either unraced or lightly raced with nearly no success.
