Guide Review
Horses of the Kentucky Derby
by Bolding-Schaffer Productions


Some readers may remember my review of the first version of this CDROM two years ago. I liked it then and I like it even more now. More photos have been added as well as video for many runnings prior to 1970 (licensing issues with ABC precluded adding later years) plus the historical information has been expanded, a trivia quiz added, and runnings through 2001 included. If you don't want to read all the textin the write-up for each horse off the screen, there is a text-to-speech option that will read it to you. The horses are indexed by year and each gets several photos not only of the horse but also the connections, an excellent history, a pedigree chart, and in many cases a video of his Derby win. If you love the Derby, you will love this CDROM.

System Requirements: 450MHz or faster processor, 64MB memory, CDROM drive, Windows 95 or higher. You can purchase this CDROM direct from Bolding Schaffer for only $29.95.
