This game is truly unique. The outcome of each race is determined by over 1000 factors utilizing over 100,000 lines of code. Factors include the horses' speed and stamina, the racetrack and its condition, the race pace, the trip traveled by the horse during the race, post position, race distance, racing luck and many more factors. Horses even change lanes, get bumped, get blocked, and horses on the outside lose ground on curves.
Did you ever notice how Silver Charm and Buckpasser would ease up when they get to the lead too soon? Or how front running horses do well when they get an easy lead, but fold in the stretch if the pace is hotly contested? They do the same thing in Horse Racing Fantasy. Each horse's attributes are based on our diligent research of past performances as found in the American Racing Manuals, Daily Racing Forms and the Daily Racing Form's recent book entitled "Champions". Dozens of random factors ensure that no two races are alike, just as in real horse racing.
Horse Racing Fantasy is four games in one & a great handicapping tool:
