Hey everyone, so I found this horse racing game at a yardsale this summer called winners circle. The only reference/picture I can find from it is in Sid Sacksons archived files where they went after he died. Other then it being invented by him in 1954 I have no information on how many were made and what its value is. Im not looking to sell it, im just looking for more information. If anyone knows anything it would be really cool to know. Thanks very much

I believe Reiner Knizia has a game with that title?

A rare game which is not yet in the BGG database, it would seem!

Wonder if it was released as a different name. It is odd that this game would not be in the database yet, coming from Sid Sackson.

I'm guessing those pics of Sackson's older game were mistakenly posted to that entry that you linked, which is a newer and apparently different game. I think there should be a new and separate entry for Sid's game. I'd recommend that the OP take a few pictures and submit the game and the pics and collect the geek gold for it!

I believe they are the same game with the same rules and that the version I have is a rerelease and not sacksons original from 54. Still very cool to own and play something not many have.
