A good example of this folding tinplate horse-racing board game by Burnett of Birmingham, England, called The Lucky Race Game. Beautiful, detailed, colourful images of the course, jockeys etc.,

The same principle of play is as for all the games such as Steeple Chase, The Race, etc. Throw of a dice decrees how quickly the horse playing pieces progress around the board where they experience fences, water-jumps etc and it is the first to win.

The four coloured metal horses are present, but a two of the horses are missing a leg each. But unlike the real thing, they still stand. A small dice shaker and dice period to the piece can be supplied.
