Track King is an award-winning MMO Simulation Game, capturing all the thrills and excitement of horse-racing live in your browser - and even better, it's totally free to play! There's no need to know anything about horse racing to play, but there's enough realism that if you know your thoroughbreds then you'll be right at home.
The basics of the game are very simple, with plenty of information available to get you started. Hiring some trainers and vets for your stable, entering into a race, checking out the Auctions, and even playing one of the Racing minigames on the site can all be attempted without any knowledge of the game. But the more you learn, the more you begin to realise that there's plenty of strategy that a good manager can use to their advantage. Quite cleverly, the game has been designed so that there's almost no "bad" decisions - excepting of course if your stable goes broke! As you learn more and more about your horses and jockeys, you'll begin to develop your own theories about how to get the best out of them.
Track King races are happening throughout more than 16 hours of every day, with 100 tracks around the world playing host to almost 1,000 races every day! League Races, Cup Races, and Stakes races. Races can be watched live in your browser using a Flash plug-in, and you can even place bets on the winners using your own virtual money - so even if you're not competing in a race, you can share the excitement by betting using a realistic totalisator system. And the races aren't as predictable as you might think, with each jockey having a unique Artificial Intelligence, they each have a unique approach to race situations that they might find themselves in. Some don't care too much for the condition of the horse, and will run them into the ground. Some would rather run a tentative race and charge home - hoping they don't leave their run agonisingly late. Some respond to the pressure of nearby competitors, and others will do anything to be in the lead. Don't be surprised if you find yourself cheering your virtual winners!
Off track, there's a lot of other ways to improve and fine-tune your stable. Planning a training strategy, and managing the health of your horses so that they peak just before a race, is just the tip of the iceberg. There's specialist facilities that can give you the edge in different areas of training or management. There's money to be made with buying and selling horses on the Auctions. You can train the Artificial Intelligence of your apprentice jockeys. And you can even breed your very own foals, using a very realistic DNA facility!
Track King is a highly addictive MMO game full of surprises and playability - invest a little time and you'll rapidly find it becoming a stable part of your gaming life!
