ACH/eCheck Payments Now Accepted!

The MyRacehorse product team is pleased to announce that purchases can now be paid for using a direct debit from a bank account, also known as ACH or eCheck payments. Just type in your bank routing number and account number in the checkout sequence.

As you’re aware, Credit Card companies and Paypal charge ~3.5% in transaction fees, which have been absorbed by MyRacehorse in the past. Fees are much smaller for ACH/eCheck.

Beginning in early January, Credit Card/Paypal fees will be passed on to buyers, while ACH/eCheck, Wallet and Gift Card payments will remain free from transaction fees. All these options are available in the checkout flow.

(To be clear, buying a Gift Card using a Credit Card or Paypal will incur the transaction fee. Spending your Gift Card balance will not incur a transaction fee.)

Race Recap

Zestful ran another evenly one paced race today in the first race at Santa Anita. Jockey Drayden Van Dyke’s comments were that the horse needs to go longer and just doesn’t have the turn of foot necessary for the downhill turf course. We’ll see how he comes out of the race and look at the next condition book when it comes out.

Race Recap

Madarnas raced evenly throughout today’s sixth race at Santa Anita in finishing 5th. Madarnas under his own power walked into the equine van after the race as jockey Edwin Maldonado felt something was off. Initial reports are that Madarnas suffered an injury to a sesamoid. It is a non-life threatening injury and he’ll undergo further evaluation and tests in the coming days. Madarnas is comfortable back at the barn and eating an early dinner. We’ll provide additional updates in the upcoming days on his status and explanations of the injury.
