Run for the Roses simulates a day at Americas premier racing venue, enjoying the exciting world of thoroughbred horse racing . Each race day is composed of 12 races of 7 to 12 horses competing in races ranging from 6 furlongs to 1-1/8 miles in length. This simulation includes 300 different horses and 20 different jockeys, each with distinct racing histories that shape their odds and on-track behaviors. Whether you're an ace handicapper, or pick 'em by color, Run for the Races fills the bill. Run for the Roses uses a complex set of algorithms, based on the racing form data, to carefully link a horse's current performance with her past performance, based on data in the racing form. Of course, as in real life, there are random events within each race - so the favorite doesn't always win. No handicapping experience is required to enjoy Run for the Roses. The less experienced handicapper may simply start the simulation and place wagers just as he or she might at a real racetrack - based on the color of the horse, name, jockey or recent racing record and without the risk of losing hard-earned cash. So get the gang together and see who's the best handicapper!
