I think it's a mistake to call this a horse racing game; it's really a horse betting game. The mechanism for moving the horses is extremely simple but also extremely clever. The secret of success in the game, however, is in your betting strategy.

In keeping with Geeks marking down lighter games, but taken in context as a filler should score much higher. This is a tense, exciting race/betting game which manages to squeeze a lot into 30 minutes.

I really liked this game when I played it but there are so many horse racing games out there I'm not sure this is much more than a 7.

Simple mechanics, basically roll a die and move, a bit of nail-biting and off-the wall graphics make for an entertaining game.A minor classic I think.

Enjoyable push your luck race game - the betting is fun ... use the hidden placement option.
Its easy for non-gamers. Races are quick and exciting and I find myself eager for my next go. When its not your go you badger the rolling player to move low numbers on others horses or cheer for others - and you could be bluffing!

Nice betting game that plays quick.
Very easy to explain.
Before you throw the dice each player can place one single bet starting with the player who's turn it is.
That person throws for all five horses. He moves them to the other lane (so you could see which horses allready moved)
After the turn. The player to his left gets to throw the dice and move the horses. But not before everybody has had the right to place one single bet.

There should be as many races as players. Everybody has to be the start player once. (because of the betting mechanism the start player is least likely to win. (It's pretty absurd to place a bet in the opening turn.)

Game was well received by my uncle and his wife. All they play is can't stop. (I've logged more than 150 plays of it with them, and they have played close to 400)

Simple but fun horse racing game where you bet as the race progresses. Roll a die five times, once for each horse and then move them according to what's best for your bets. Each player gets to place three bets. The earlier you place your bet, the more return you're likely to get.

Short and very entertaining. Overlooked.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.
