Personal review
Unbelievable, but I think this is the first horse racing game I have ever played which let me actually do the riding myself. So far I always had only played "betting games" within a horse racing scenario. So I can't compare it to other games, but I must say that it isn't bad and I liked it somehow. The horses have several stats like stamina, speed and jumping ability and you can pick up extra power ups during the race (not realistic, but I don't care in this case). Once you find a working tactic (leaving enough power for the finish) the game becomes rather easy. The graphics and sound/music are the weak part of the game. And before I forget to mention it. Yes, this game also has a betting part implemented.
