On January 1, 2008, Foss United purchased Edge Never Peanut for $100,000. Several days later, the young colt was entered into his first race, the Ahern's Stakes, at a ridiculous distance for a 2yo (2,500m); he took home the $41,000 prize for first place by a length. A week later, he was entered in the Hybarger Stakes, a Long race with a fifty percent larger purse, which he won by many lengths against twelve opponents. By then, Foss United stable owner fossunited presumed, Edge Never Peanut was ready for user-created races as opposed to automatic game-created stakes races. However, he finished a disappointing 13th in the Ruffian, a Medium race with a rich purse of nearly $3 million.
As a result, Edge Never Peanut was returned to bot races the following week, running in the Snee Stakes. Back in an Epic race, which would prove to be one of his favorite distances throughout his career, he took home the $52,000 winner's share by two-and-a-half seconds. Two weeks later, he debuted in his first Cup race, in a heat for the Class 3 Classic . Over Epic distance, he smashed the field by eight seconds.
Edge Never Peanut returned to the Class 3 Classic Cup in the first week of March, to race in the 2,550 meter final . He finished second place - a strong showing to get into the winner's circle of his first cup - despite being a second and a half behind the winner, Arh State. Six days later, he returned to action in the Borup Stakes , where he claimed $63,200 and first place in another Epic race. He then earned a two-week layoff before being entered in the South America Track King Open Final - by far the most prestigious contest in the horse's short career. Against some of the best of the world's young horses, he finished third, a second behind Another Shank and Disney Alouette, both owned by Turd Ferguson Stable. The money showings in both the Class 3 Classic Cup final and the TK Open final provided a great cap to a successful first season in the partnership of Edge Never Peanut and Foss United.
