My parents had Escalado back in the 1950s... with the original heavy metal (lead?) horses. Oh where oh where is it now???

I have it!
I actually got my old set out a couple of years ago, for a "charity horse-racing day" at work.

Wow. I seem to recall that there were always issues about one horse being heavier than the others (in fact one had only three legs, and always used to fall. Totopoly is as much more satisfying "proper" board game, but you can only get it second hand on e-bay. I've also been looking out for "Scoop" an old Waddington's Newspaper publishing game.

Ahhh those were the days!

We had two sets of horses (one set lead, one a lighter alloy). The heavy set performed better, although there was always one "favourite" (always bet on black). Sadly the track was ruined when the box got wet following a burst pipe.
