The game’s concept is to be successively a horse stable owner, jockey and bet on races. This game targets real horse racing enthusiasts as well as casual horse amateurs.
Horse Racing Manager integrates three different types of gaming experience more or less linked to each other depending on the player’s choices: bets, the financial management of a stable and the control of horses during races.
It allows managing the finances of a stable by letting the gamer decide upon the new equipment investments (training facilities, new staff, new land...) and the purchases and breeding of new horses. You are free to create your own lineage by selecting and breeding champions to obtain the best racing horse of all times !
Horse Racing lets you participate in 4 race types (gallop, obstacles...) over more than 100 tracks worldwide. It is possible to participate in real time races by controlling your horse yourself. You will have to handle his strengths and weaknesses, and manage his speed and energy while keeping track of your opponents, the climatic conditions and the field type. The world of horse racing is closely linked to betting. Thus, you will be allowed to bet on all types of races (national and international). Thanks to a detailed statistic system, you will have all the tools to analyze over 5 000 horses. This could be a great help to reach new heights more rapidly or your undoing if you lose everything !
The gamer has the opportunity to participate in all three game modes (owner, jockey, bets) or just in some of them depending on his centres of interest. Horse Racing Manager can be played in solo mode or multiplayer over a LAN or the internet.
