Some of my fondest memories as a kid included spending time at the horse track while my father gambled away all of my college savings. Man, those were the days—all of the second hand smoke I could handle, for free! This toy is for those less adventurous parent types that still want to expose their children to the basics of gambling. The Mini Horse Racing Track comes with six horse and six interchangeable jockeys, all of which have varying weights that can change the outcome. $120.
the inside track isn't shorter, the starting gates are staggered, like on running tracks, so the inside track starts farther back.
first off, i don't see that in the picture or on the website. the inside track is shorter.
also, i've been to hollywood park, del mar, santa anita, calder, sam houston, aqueduct, keenland, churchill downs, red mile, and delta downs... they do not have staggered starting gates. the horses can run where ever the hell they want to on the track.
