Gambling game, horse racing game.
The race consists of 8 horses with jockeys.
One could gamble on one or more horses, by putting money in the middle cup.
By means of a lever at the front, the mechanism of middle horses is started .
When the horses are stopped, the horse closest to the mast has won and the winner gets all the money from the cup. The mast is no longer there.
The game was used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in cafes as a gambling game.
Due to intensive use, these games have become quite rare.
Of the games that are left, usually parts are broken or pieces are missing, such as heads, legs, entire horses, etc. But of these only 2 jockeys have fallen off their horses.
The mechanism is still working. The box is made of wood and cardboard. Most parts are made of tin.
