The Dilatory Derby is a quest with a boss known as the Sea Stallion. It was released during the Summer Splash. Defeating this boss will unlock the Seahorse Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Market for 4 gems.

This quest is one of the starter bosses recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties; the Sea Stallion's HP pool and Strength multiplier are the lowest tier of the quest bosses. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four person party can typically finish this quest in less than three weeks.


It's Derby Day, and Habiticans from all over the continent have traveled to Dilatory to race their pet seahorses! Suddenly, a great splashing and snarling breaks out at the racetrack, and you hear Seahorse Keeper @Kiwibot shouting above the roar of the waves. "The gathering of seahorses has attracted a fierce Sea Stallion!" she cries. "He's smashing through the stables and destroying the ancient track! Can anyone calm him down?"


Defeat the Sea Stallion.

The now-tame Sea Stallion swims docilely to your side. "Oh, look!" Kiwibot says. "He wants us to take care of his children." She gives you three eggs. "Raise them well," she says. "You're welcome at the Dilatory Derby any day!"

In the announcement about Derby Day, Bailey says, "On this day, the worst of Habitica's ancient bugs were defeated, and so every year we celebrate." This is a reference to major rewrites to the code for HabitRPG that occurred in 2013. A number of severe bugs were vanquished by reimplementing the site the angular.js framework. Habiticans celebrate with a derby as a reference to derby.js, the framework we moved away from.
