Published in the book Sixty Programs For The BBC Micro by Pan Books Ltd, in association with Personal Computer News. The book contains the following description:
Horse Race is a racing and betting game for any numbers of players in which six horses race across the screen. At the beginning of the game you can choose how many races there will be at the meeting.
Before the start of each race the betting form is displayed, complete with the tipsters odds on each runner. The odds are a fairly accurate reflection of each horse's potential.
Starting with £200, each player may bet on one horse in each race and the winner is the player who ends up with the largest amount of money at the end of the meeting. If you want the rules to allow cheating then players who lose all their money may have the option of accepting the offer of an additional £50, otherwise they are out of the game.
