Although it is not well-rated in many forums, I like the Neogeo CD version of Stakes Winner. I know that there is a version of Stakes Winner in Neogeo (arcade machine or console) but the CD version is like a Gran Turismo game with horses. You can buy horses, enhance them... and even when you decide to retire an old horse, this horse can have "a child horse" with a female horse. The resulting "child horse" inherits the best of its father and mother
Besides, I am with xyteam: Crossed Swords 2 is an impressive game (I don't know many games like that).
