If you’re a horse racing fan, then your only gaming option has been to take in the absolutely dire Horse Racing 2016, letting you put your jockey skills to the test. Now though a second game comes running into view – but whether or not it’ll push the horse racing genre to the next level is very much up for debate.

See, the latest ACA NEOGEO title to hit Xbox One is that of ACA NEOGEO Stakes Winner, a ‘realistic’ jockey action game that was first released by SNK back in 1995.

It comes priced at £6.39, and by using your whip, formation split and hyper dash skills (whatever the hell they are), you’ll be tasked with powering your beloved horse through a variety of races.

Game difficulty settings are now in place, as are worldwide leaderboards, but whether either of those are worthy additions to a game that is obviously only going to cater to a certain subset of gamer is for you to decide.

If you wish to give it a shot, then the Microsoft Store is ready to take your hard earned cash. Go pay it a visit.
