VERSAILLES, Ky., March 2, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Tropical Racing, Inc. ("Tropical Racing," the "Company"), a thoroughbred horse breeding and racing company, has announced a closing date of March 9, 2022, for its current Regulation A ("Reg A"), Tier 2 offering.
In 2019, Tropical Racing embarked to be more than a thoroughbred syndicate racing company. The Company expanded its operations from Florida into Kentucky and leased with the option to buy 200 acres of prime thoroughbred breeding and racing farmland in Versailles, Kentucky, with neighbors that are the elite breeding farms in the United States. In 2019, when Tropical Racing arrived in Kentucky, it had two broodmares and a few racehorses. Now, in 2022, Tropical Racing owns the farm outright, and it currently owns 22 broodmares and over 75 horses in total, progressing towards its short-term goal of 150 thoroughbred horses.
Over the last year, management believes it has made great strides expanding the Company's foothold in the thoroughbred industry, increasing potential revenue streams and asset bases in technology by acquiring an ownership interest in a Web 3.0 (metaverse) Play to Earn game called the Game of Silks. Through its multifaceted investment strategy in all aspects of the thoroughbred industry, Tropical Racing became a lead investor in Game of Silks — a pioneer derivative gaming platform that intends to leverage a blockchain-enabled metaverse to parallel the real world of thoroughbred horse racing. The Silks metaverse will be powered by a play-to-earn (P2E) gaming economy where anyone can experience the thrill of owning racehorses and horse farms while reaping valuable tokens through skilled gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem. The Silks community is expected to have the ability to acquire, collect, trade, and interact with digital assets that represent actual thoroughbred racehorses in the real world. The Company also anticipates expanding into a Bloodstock division in the coming months, which should provide it the opportunity to turn over inventory quicker and pinhook many horses through the partnership with consignors in major sales.
In March 2021, Tropical Racing's Reg A, Tier 2 offering was qualified by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company commenced selling efforts in the offering in May 2021. The Company intends to update and requalify its Reg A Offering Statement, which means the Company will halt sales in the offering on March 10, 2022, until the SEC requalifies its Offering Statement.
Tropical Racing is pleased with the Company's milestones and progress during the last calendar year. Tropical Racing looks forward to keeping all of its shareholders and followers updated with the most recent news, including disclosures to be provided in its annual report on Form 1-K to be filed in April 2022.
About Regulation A

Regulation A ("Reg A") contains rules providing exemptions from the registration requirements, allowing some companies to use public solicitations to offer and sell their securities without having to register the securities with the SEC. Regulation A offerings are intended to make access to capital possible for small and medium-sized companies and to allow non-accredited investors to participate in the offering. The regulation is found under Title 17 of the Code of Federal Regulations, chapter 2, part 230.
