Experience all the thrills and excitement of a day at the races in this icon
driven simulation for up to 5 players.
You can choose up to 75 horses to race in any season, to start with they will
not have any form so build this up by choosing the 'YES' icon when you are asked
if you would like to auto-run some races.
To place your bet choose the 'Bookie' icon and then choose one of the four types
of bet. Once you have selected your horse and placed your bet you will return to
the main menu, choose the race icon and watch the race. If you have a Currah
speech unit you will hear the commentary given as the race goes along. Nothing
is random in the results, jockeys, weights, going and distances are all
carefully calculated for the final outcome. However, the more horses you choose
for the season the smaller your chances of winning become.
If there are less than eight runners payouts only apply to 1st and 2nd places.
