I wasn’t too sure as to what to expect from this game when I received it. I haven’t really played that many racing games, but this one, when it was offered caught my eye. Being re-launched for its 21st anniversary, the box is heavy and the game sounds fun, but do the contents justify the price?

This is what the publishers have to say:
The world of horseracing has long been associated with cheating in all its forms. But few games ever attempt to simulate that aspect. Players are assigned a horse and must move it around the track by rolling a single die. This would be rather boring if the game didn’t allow for the players to bet on another player’s horse, so the dilemma is whether to move your horse badly just to make it easier for the horse you bet on to win. Even that could be boring, but then each player is issued cards which allow them to commit dirty tricks, for instance making a horse fall or forcing the winner to take a drug test. All in all, it makes for some very interesting racing.
