Enjoy the sport of kings at all levels! Choose whether to play the game as an owner, breeder, trainer, jockey or punter. Each activity will require specific know-how that you will be able to acquire with each play.

  • As an owner, you will have to keep an eye on your finances and optimize the working time of your staff as well as yours.
  • As a trainer, you will have to prepare your horses according to the goals you will have set for the season, bearing in mind each horse's characteristics and your financial constraints. Your ultimate goal as a trainer will be to improve their overall characteristics to their maximum capacity.

Gamer's Hell by “Da Munkee” M. Burrell

"So is the game horrible? No. It’s actually an intriguingly unique concept and is very admirable for the effort and level of statistical detail put into it. While the average gamer will most likely find this title to be heavy on the stats and short on the fun, for fans of this genre, it’s got a lot to offer. If you are a true horse racing junkie, a habitual gambler, a general fan of management style games, or even if you’ve ever just wondered what it would be like to run your own stable, you might find this game to be fairly enjoyable. In the end, perhaps this was the intent of Cyanide Studios with this title, but hopefully next time they’ll make it more accessible to the rest of us."
