    This is the precursor to Titan: The Arena (later known as Colossal Arena) and Galaxy: The Dark Ages.

    The theme is horses racing in a steeplechase. Each round represents a fence that the horses must jump.

    Players bet and then place speed cards on each horse. When all of the horses have a speed card on them, the one with the lowest speed card is eliminated. When there are three horses left (which happens after 5 rounds), the players are paid for their bets on the surviving horses. Earlier bets are worth more.

    The game in each case is essentially similar to Titan: the Arena except:
    - There are no special powers, nor special cards.
    - The deck goes to 0-9, not 0-10.
    - There are no secret bets.
    - In four or five player games, each player gets 4 bets.
    - If there is a tie for lowest card when a round ends, the tied horse furthest on the left is eliminated. (Play does NOT continue as it does in Titan: the Arena or G:tDA)
