Description from the packaging.

Experience the exciting world of horse racing! Strive to become the hottest bettor at the track, or own a stable full of stakes winning thoroughbreds.

Quarter Pole creates a look never seen in sports simulation software before. An interactive, first-person interface means no more boring menu screens to slow down your adventure. You are virtually transported to the grounds of Blue Rock Downs; see the sights, hear the sounds, and feel the excitement!

Up to 10 players can choose from a variety of opening scenarios with the same goad: to create their fortune. As a bettor, check out the racing form before you bet the farm. There's no reason to risk your cash on hunches. Play trifectas, exactas, and daily doubles to really make some money.

If you decide to own a stable, you will be responsible for hiring the best available trainers to keep your investment fast and healthy. Buy and sell horses at the auction, and enter them in the races that will make you rich. There are ten races daily, Wednesday through Monday, including claims and allowances races, and over 125 stakes and handicap races throughout the year. That's plenty of opportunity to choose the best races for your ponies. Your ultimate success or failure rests upon your shoulders.

Enter the world of thoroughbred racing in a unique first-person perspective. Visit the stables, buy a program, see what horses are up for bid in the auction tent.

Check the bulletin board for access to the computer in the lounge to check on stakes races, information on past races, and claim horses.

Choose from many patterns and colors to design your jockey's silks.

Explore the race grounds: place a bet, visit the commissioner, or take a seat in the grandstand.

Your horse takes the lead into the straightaway! Will you be a winner?
