Campaign: Season 1: America’s Most Eligible Stud Blog Series

Judge’s Comments: Really cohesive social media campaign with a clear goal that was successfully achieved. The "America's Most Eligible Stud" idea allowed the campaign to be fun and full of personality while still getting War Dancer's photo out for the world to see. And the campaign was nicely distributed across four major social media platforms.

The campaigns consist of turning War Dancer into America’s Most Eligible Stud with his own multi-platform digital campaign inspired by ABC’s successful show The Bachelor. As a charming and handsome Thoroughbred Stallion, War Dancer warms the hearts of horse enthusiasts and breeders around the country. His journey began in “Season One”, a 12-episode blog series during which he dated and chose his perfect matches. His campaign led him to breed to over 100 mares his first year at stud. Season Two was an 8-episode YouTube series featuring War Dancer’s adventures at his farm in Saratoga, that successfully brought the stud another 100 mates.

Since launch, America’s Most Eligible Stud has earned the following stats across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube:

  • 4.7M Impressions
  • 173K Engagements
  • 765K+ Video Views
