Maybe you’ll remember the first iHorse Racing app, that was released in 2013 by developer Gamemiracle Co. Ltd? Well, now it’s time to sadle up again with their new release: iHorse Racing 2, which is available in the app stores worldwide. (It’s a free download!)
In iHorse Racing 2, the player becomes the trainer and manager of a racing horse stable. Your job is to train and raise your horses, and manage your team, into a team of price winning race horses. Buy, sell and trade horses to get the perfect stable for your team of jockeys, in order to become the ultimate champion. As a manager, you get to pick and select horses from a database that includes over 600 unique horses and jockeys, which are customizable as well. That’s right, you can customize things like their names, color, and look of your team. Real life horses are included in the database, so you even get to choose famous horses such as American Pharoah, Firing Line and Dortmund.
Once you get started with the races, you can opt for both single and multiplayer races. Single Player mode lets you start a World Tour adventure, in which you as a manager/trainer have to challenge and defeat other trainers (CPU) to earn point and progress through the game.
We were particularly charmed by the latter option, since you get to compete with real players from all over the world in special cub championships: you and other players get to create their own horse racing clubs and compete amongst each other, or with other clubs.
Pacing bets and live watching
Another interesting feature is the betting system: you can place (fun-credits) bets on races held by other players then yourself. You get to watch the race you’ve bet which really simulates the real thrill of horse bet racing in real life.
