- This is a full race with two horses as an example.
- Normally you will use up to 12 horses for more action and excitement, but for an easy "How to play" we will just focus on two of them.
- For a full 12 horses race look at Example 2 or look at Example 3 for a race with jumps.
- We also will use only the first column [Fields] on the RUN table for this race here.

- It's a calm, but
**HOT**day here in Charlestown (US) with 10 furlongs. - The
**DIRT**track with 100 fields length looks good and all horses are already in their boxes, waiting for the final start signal. Clifford in box 1 and Wild Blossom in box 2. - And here we go! The bell is ringing!
- The horses break out of their boxes and are on the track.

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 |

- First of all, we want to know, how the horses reacted to the bell...
- We start with Clifford, roll both d6 dices and look at the Break out table. We got a (3+2) 5 result and this means, our horse is a little bit delayed, so we have -1 as table result. We note that in our Scorecard in column B.
- The same goes with Wild Blossom. Here we roll (4+2) 6, we look at the Break out table again and we can see, that this is a neutral start (result 0). Again we note the zero in the scorecard.

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 |

- Now we are out of the boxes and on the track, so now it's time to take a look at the RUN table.
- Let's start again with Clifford, we roll both d6 dices with (5+3) 8 and look at the RUN result. The answer is: we can move 11 fields forward. But we have to adjust it now with our break out value before, in this case -1, so we write the final result 10 in the first field.
- Now Wild Blossom. We roll both dices and we got a (4+5) 9, again we look at the RUN table, which tells us, that we can move 10 fields forward. Remember, we have a neutral break out, so nothing is added or subtracted from the result.
- Clifford and Blossom are heading down the lane on the same height (10:10)!

---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

Clifford | 1 | -1 | 10 | 21 | |||||||||||||||||||||||

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 |

- Again we repeat the process. Clifford stretches his body, we roll both dices and we roll (4+) 8 with the RUN result of 11 fields. So we add that to the field value 10 before (10 + 11) and are now on 21.
- Wild Blossoms also rolls the dices with (2+3) 4 and will move 9 fields forward. We add this amount to the 10 of the last value and have 19.
- Clifford is in the lead now!

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 | 29 |

- Clifford in the lead rolls now (5+5) 10 and the RUN table tells us, that we can add 9 additional fields, so we note 30 down.
- Wild Blossom continues, rolls (3+2) 5 and here we get 10 fields. Combined with the value before we are now at 29.
- Just one field behind Clifford!

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 | 29 | 27 |

- Not every horses loves the track conditions, so we take a look at the specific Horse value for the track conditions and adjust the last result.
- Clifford has -1 in his scores for DIRT, so we subtract that from the last field value and adjust it to 29.
- Wild Blossom hates it, visible with -2 in her score value for DIRT, so we adjust her field value too to 27.
- We've adjusted now the conditions and can continue the run... Clifford is still in the lead!

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 | 29 | 27 | 36 |

- Clifford rolls again (4+4) 8 with the RUN result of 11. Again we add it to the last value, this means 29 + 11 = 40 and write it down.
- Wild Blossoms rolls (5+5) 10, so moves 9 additional fields forward and is now 4 fields behind.

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 | 29 | 27 | 36 | 47 |

- Clifford rolls now (4+3) 7 and has a fantastic result of 12. This brings us to 52.
- This is not the day of Wild Blossom. The roll with (5+3) 8 will bring 11 and to 47.
- Doesn't look good, my wild lady!

Wild Blossom | 2 | 0 | 10 | 19 | 29 | 27 | 36 | 47 | 46 |

- What we should not forget is the temperature! We know, today it's hot, so we look into the specific values of each Horse for hot weather.
- Clifford doesn't like heat, so because of that he looses -3 according his score sheet. We subtract that again from the last field value and note 49.
- Wild Blossom can deal with heat better and just looses -1, so we adjusting also her value and get the final value of 46.
- Just two fields now between both horses!

- Now we are more or less in the middle of the race. We have adjusted the race with the break out, track and weather value, so the main conditions are set now. Let's continue the race.
- Clifford rolls (5+6) 11 and just moves 8 additional fields.
- Wild Blossom has also not a good roll with (2+1) 3 and moves 8 fields forward.

- Now we are on the track for a while, but we want to know, if the horses still have enough power, so now the P1 value comes into place...
- Clifford has 2 according his Horse scorecard, so we can add that to the last field value and note 69 in the scorecard for column P1.
- Wild Blossom has a weak point here and looses -3 fields. Not good and we adjust the value in the scorecard.

- Now the tension is raising!
- Clifford rolls (2+5) 7 and can move great 12 additional fields forward.
- Wild Blossom is still behind, but also rolls (4+3) 7, so she can also move 12 fields forward to 85.

- Now the finish wire comes in sight, but we check again, how the horses deal with their power and check their P2 value for adjusting their positions.
- Clifford has 0 in his scores for P2, so no changes to the last result and we write again 91 into the scorecard.
- Wild Blossom has also 0 in her scores, so we do the same again.
- No changes to their positions... a rare event.

- We know, that the track is 100 fields long (10 furlongs), so if a horse crosses the 100 mark, it has finished the race.
- Clifford rolls now (5+4) 9 and stumbles over the finish wire to 101...! Here we go!!!
- Wild Blossom rolls (4+2) 6 and moves with 11, based on the run table, to 96.
- Clifford has clearly won the race, but Wild Blossom is still on the track!

- Wild Blossom rolls (6+3) 9 and can move 10 additional fields and rushes through the wire too.
- It's over... Wild Blossom has reached the finish, but it was a bad race for her today!

- Now we have the final values to calculate the time.
- Clifford has 1 field over the finish line and the last power value was 0, so we take a look into the TIME table and get the result of .52 - we combine that with the amount of dice rolls: 10.
- So Clifford needed 10.52 for the track!
- Wild Blossom needed 11 rolls to the finish wire and is 6 fields over it and the last power value was 0 - so based on the TIME table she has a time of 11.32 on the second place.

- And that's it... easy, or?!
- And you will have much more fun, when you roll the full race for all 12 horses, because then you also have very tight nose to nose fights & finishes and also sometimes surprises in the last part of the race! See Example 2.
