The NCAA Tournament is right around the corner and the StableDuel team can’t wait although it may be because of something brewing on our Twitter account. I have assembled a 64 horse StableDuel Madness to name the greatest horse of all time, and you, the true Degens are going to decide it. I broke down the 4 regions into Male Dirt, Male Turf, Female Dirt and Female Turf. I dug through information for hours to seed these legends and threw them in the bracket. This was a far more complicated thing than I had assumed and the discussion for who to put in and who to leave out was animated. After talking with experts and listening to fans, here are your first-round matchups that will appear on a Twitter Poll beginning next week. Seeds are in parenthesis.
