Casino-Edition / really nice tactical game of bluffing/double-guessing and wagering that actually feels like a Knizia. It's not a pure racing game in the sense, that you control one horse and try to let it win. You try to let the horses win, that you have bet on, but you also move other horses. You rarely have enough good cards for "your" horse to win, so you need to hide your bets good enough by good bluffing so that your opponents help you with their cards. A lot of tension is in this little game and a lot of horse wagering atmosphere. But my impression is: don't play with more than 4 people, it will lack control then. With two players luck is nearly not present and it's a pure tactical game where you will need to outwit the other player. Players who rate it low probably only played it with too many players.

Hallmark edition. One of the 4 or 5 best racing games ever.

Great filler game! simple rules and fun to play. Innovative as well. I like!

update: did i say filler? pft. you can make an entire gaming night out of this game. its one of those rare games where we are all on the edge of our chairs rooting for the horse we want to win. its a very vocal game that really shouldn't be.

Always had immense fun in this race game. The uncertainty of who has backed each horse overshadows the actualk outcome of the betting.

Very decent and fun horse racing game that I received as a kid (somewhere in the early 70's).

Raters that complain of lack of control for some reason don't understand that this is not a 'race'-game but a betting-game (with a lot of bluff added): when determining on which horse(s) to bet, don't just look at you own cards, but try to deduce what cards the other players have (and thus will bid on).

Excellent game, particularly for 2 players. Takes only 30 minutes and you have plenty of control over the horses (even if I still can't get either of mine to finish the race).

Another game that's follwed me through from my garage sale days in the 80's. There are only two things wrong with it: 1) THe foam rubber backing on the play mat has succumbed to dry rot, and 2) I can never beat my wife at it.
