My go to game!

This is the only game on my phone (or any console) that I don't get tired of. I have been playing it on and off (mostly on haha) for about a year. It is updated regularly (when I got it there was no career mode) but there is still work to be done...especially in the realm of breeding. I had never thought much of horse racing until this game. If you watch SeaBiscuit and need a quick horse racing fix, this is your game! I only gave it four stars because there is room for improvement. Honestly this should be a top app...

Love this game

I absolutely love this game I've had it for about half an hour and I'm already on my second horse and I have 3 BroodMares. I love this game I don't think there should be any fixes for right now.

Best horse racing game

Its amazing thats all there is too it. The only thing is i wish there was more updates with new things every time. It's still awesome though
