TIPS AND TRICKS

• How to unlock the endings: The game has between 16 and 18 races depending on your performance. If you get a game over and change your horse, the race count will reset. Reset the count mid game or near the end to get the extra endings. Also, the endings are slightly different depending on the gender of the horse.
- Good Ending 1: Win in all the races. It doesn't matter on how many you participate in, it can be 1 out of 1 or 17 out of 17, but you need to win on every one of them.
- Good Ending 2: Participate in over 8 races and don't win all of them.
- Bad Ending 1: Participate in between 1 and 7 races and don't win all of them.
- Bad Ending 2: Participate in just 1 race and lose it.
