Horse racing game on Mac - name?

Hi everyone

I have been trying to work out the name of an old Apple Macintosh game that ran on our Apple Macintosh SE in the early-1990s.

The game was a fairly straightforward horse racing game where you could bet on the horses. The game included two dimensional graphics of the horses in each race running across the screen from left to right. I estimate the game was released in the late-1980s to early-1990s.

If you happen to know the name of this game, please let me know.

Cheers

Thanks, Daxeria.

No - that's not the one.

Any other suggestions out there?

The next closest I can think of is Bird Race.

Thanks. 'Bird Race' looks interesting.

Any other suggestions from anybody? I have been thinking of something simple like "Mac Racing" or "Mac Horse", but no meaningful search results have come up ...

Hey, I've been trying to find that game too - was there a horse called Phooey in it? With really terrible odds?
I can't find it anywhere, i keep thinking it was called 'Steeple Chase' or something but still can't locate it. It was black and white and the horse race would be over really quickly, but it was really fun, and you placed bets.

Does this ring any bells?

Cheers.

I think it's simply called "Horse Race".

Look familiar?

I seem to recall "Horse Race", Nicholas. Funny thing, that one is not included in the freeware/shareware CD I made for archiving.
Please upload, as its neither in System6 Heaven nor in System6 Hell (Emaculation)
