The revolutionary data and gaming company Prixview is expanding once again—and paying it forward.
The first of its kind data analytics and fantasy gaming company for the sport of show jumping, Prixview collects revolutionary live, official competition data and processes it into educational and engaging insights and analytics for both stakeholders and new fans of the sport. Their fantasy games are free-to-play and award real cash prizes, as players make predictions on show jumping events and are rewarded for accuracy.
Since its winter launch, Prixview has focused its efforts on international sport, but for the first time, the platform will offer its games for the national standard Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show. Recognized by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) as a Heritage Competition—the highest honor bestowed on a horse show—the Westport, CT-based June Benefit runs 21-25 and features a $10,000 Welcome Stake (Thursday, June 23) and $30,000 Fairfield Grand Prix (Saturday, June 25). Both events will be featured in Prixview’s fantasy offerings at Prixview.com/fantasy.
As part of its charitable offerings, the June Benefit is pledging $100 to the EQUUS Foundation for each clear first round in the Welcome Stake and Grand Prix. Prixview is joining in the giving, partnering with the EQUUS Foundation to offer its first ever donation option on its gaming platform. Prixview users may elect to donate any winnings to the EQUUS Foundation, the only national animal welfare in the United States 100 percent dedicated to protecting America’s horses from peril and strengthening the bond between horses and people. EQUUS Foundation works to increase adoptions of at-risk and transitioning horses and provide a safe haven for aged horses, as well as increase opportunities for people of all ages to engage and partner with horses in new, innovative ways.
“We are deeply grateful to Prixview for selecting the EQUUS Foundation to be a charitable partner and to have the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the need to protect America’s horses from peril,” said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President.
“Prixview’s mission is to use fantasy games to grow show jumping sport, but our team’s goal is to make sure we are supporting the welfare of all horses in the process,” said Lucy Davis, Prixview’s founder. “We are incredibly excited and proud to be working with the EQUUS Foundation. I personally hope this partnership can connect the fans of our platform and sport with more ways to give back to the animals that make it all possible.”
The EQUUS Foundation will be Prixview’s first charitable partner. The option to donate will be available for the first time this week at Fairfield, and it will continue to be a feature permanently. Prixview also plans to add additional charitable partners to allow users to donate winnings to a variety of deserving organizations.
“Prixview’s fantasy games are a fun and exciting way to elevate your involvement in the sport of show jumping, while also making it easy to make a donation to support horse welfare,” said Valerie Angeli, EQUUS Foundation Vice Preisdent. “It’s a win, win for horses and those who love them!”
