Gallop Racer

Gallop Racer is a Sony Playstation video game that has long been available in Japan and was finally released in North America in September 1999. It has gotten great reviews and the comments I have heard from people who have played it were quite favorable. Comes with over 1400 horses and you can also breed your own from these. You can play as spectator, jockey, or "manager" at 27 different racetracks. Two player mode lets you race against a friend. Only thing missing from the game is the ability to wager on the races.

Although this game is for the Playstation video game system, there is a software package called Bleem which you can buy that will let you play any Playstation game on a regular PC. A demo version of this software is available for free download.

Here is what info I could gather about this game which should be available at most video game retailers who sell Playstation games. Sorry, but as far as I know it has not been released for any other game systems.

Available for purchase online for around $40 from:
