I really need advice on the Jockey Game in Quickstart!
I'm not sure how to choose a horse with a good chance of winning, so I often end up closing races before I run them, and opening the next race.
Sometimes, usually when I'm riding a stalker or a flexible/near pace horse, my horse will be running well, then the whole field comes streaming past and I don't know what to do! Do I push my horse to keep up, or do I let the field go?
I battle to judge pace, and I'm not sure when to push whichever horse I'm riding, or when to ease up a little.
I'm also not sure how to ride different horses' running styles properly; about the only horse I know how to ride properly is Here Comes Thunder; I know that she is a strong front-runner and I've always found that once she gets the lead, nothing gets past her.
I am getting wins, though I often struggle to get them, and I'd like to improve my game, and hopefully get more consistant results.
I don't want to get a mentor though, because I know that the mentor program won't work for me. I don't work well with other people, especially strangers, and having to have a fixed time to work with a mentor also won't work for me, because I share the computer with Mom, and I never know when Mom might need to use the computer.
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give me!
