Horse Racing Manager
Horse Racing Manager lets you enjoy the sport of kings at all levels. Choose whether to play the game as an owner, breeder, trainer, jockey or punter. Each activity will require specific know-how that you will be able to acquire with each play.
As an owner, you will have to keep an eye on your finances and optimise the working time of your staff as well as yours.
As a trainer, you will have to prepare your horses according to the goals you will have set for the season, bearing in mind each horse's characteristics and your financial constraints. Your ultimate goal as a trainer will be to improve their overall characteristics to their maximum capacity.
As a breeder, you will seek and hopefully find the right matches for reproduction; you will also be in charge of the weekly report on each of your horses.
As a gambler, you will be able to visit the most famous racetracks and follow the greatest races, live. You will have to use all your gambling skills to increase your initial capital and avoid bankruptcy.
As a jockey, you will have to show your talents as a competitor and strategist in real time. Take into account your horse, the competitors, the racetrack, the weather conditions in order to have a chance to win.
Become a solo expert and then come face the other players in a LAN or on the internet, either in the racing or in the betting mode.

Having heard of this game years ago back when it came out, and having been unable to find it until it popped up on GMG, I didn't really know what to expect when going into it. What I found was a solid game for fans of all different aspects of the horse racing industry.
More into the breeding and training side of things? That's here. Like gambling on the ponies, but don't feel like losing real-world money? You can do that in HRM. But the best part of all, in my opinion, is this: why watch the jockeys when you can be one? There is, to my knowledge, no other horse racing sim out that lets you play the jockey side of things in full 3D, and it's done very well, too.
HRM runs great on Windows 7 64bit, and I've yet to have it crash, even after several straight hours of play. It's a solid, slightly older game to tickle the horsey bones in those of us that don't have anywhere near enough money nor time to get into the industry. Highly recommended!

This game is simply amazing, you can choose from various modes to play. The first is coach, where you are the coach of a jockey and you can manage the training, the horse etc. The second is betting mode, were you can bet on a horse and win money when it wins The third mode is the best mode, where you are the manager of a stable, and you have to buy horses, sell horses, feed them build stables etc. Overall this is a great game with huge complex possibilities, definitely buy this one.
