Fathiers are a species of non-sentient quadrupeds that resided in the Star Wars galaxy, very similar to horses. They were often used as mounts, and wealthy inhabitants of Kergans and Cantonica rode them in competition. They first appeared in film, The Last Jedi.
“If you told me I could only see one creature in the galaxy, it would be a fathier. Someday I want to see a fathier race! I wouldn’t even bet – I’d just watch!“―Paige Tico
Fathiers have long legs, brown fur, and large ears and with their speed, they were sought after by wealthy residents of the galaxy, and the creatures were viewed as graceful and majestic. The denizens of Cantonica on Canto Bight would gamble on the results of fathier races, much like we would on horse races. A vast world of entertainment built up around the fathier racing, including casinos. Whilst we can never experience the fun of Canto Bight in person, we can experience the equivalent in nj online casinos and get a flavour of the entertainment served up on Cantonica.
But if we were to place a bet on a fathier, what one would we choose. Its a tough choice, so to give us some insight we look at eight of the most famous fathiers at Canto Bight:
Bonadan Star was a fathier gelding owned by Pakkerd Racing. Born in 30 ABY to Etti Express and Farana’s Folly, he grew up to become a racing fathier. Ridden by the jockey Turcotte Bel Mont, Bonadan Star participated in a race that occurred shortly before the Battle of Crait.
Crimson Pavane was a fathier male that mated with Cinnabar, who gave birth to the fathier named Vermilion in 31 ABY as a result.
By around 34 ABY, Vermilion had become a racing fathier on the planet Cantonica. Crimson Pavane was listed as the fathier’s sire on race programs, including one collected by the Resistance mechanic Rose Tico and added to her diary.
Etti Express was a fathier male that mated with Farana’s Folly, who gave birth to the fathier named Bonadan Star in 30 ABY as a result.

Hoth Stuff was a fathier used as a mount at the racetrack in the city of Canto Bight on the planet Cantonica. In the year 34 ABY, the jockey Arca Yroca rode Hoth Stuff during a fathier race on the racetrack and whipped the mount’s hind quarters with an electrocrop. All of the fathiers kept at the racetrack were later freed by the Resistance agents Finn and Rose Tico, who rode with the herd through Canto Bight and out into the wilds beyond the city. Hoth Stuff had brown fur.

Time for Flatcakes
Time for Flatcakes was a deaf and blind male racing fathier out of Kreegah who was kept at the Canto Bight racetrack on the planet Cantonica. During the cold war between the First Order and the Resistance, he was purchased by the Suerton gamblers known as the Lucky Three on behalf of their friend Kaljach Sonmi. Shortly after his purchase, Time for Flatcakes participated in a race while heavily medicated by his previous owner and managed to win; however, he died immediately after due to the strain. The fathier was named for flatcakes, a type of food.
