Other information:  fantastic vintage game, this set would appear to come from the 1972 - 1978 period, the horses are semi-flat plastic, with stick-on numbers and the box dimensions are smaller than earlier versions, approaching the more conventional board game size of the this era. The design on the lid changes and incorporates the horse racing silhouette graphic from the earlier editions. The board is stiff and comes in 2 two-fold sections which come together to form the tracks). The Jockey Club Membership and Veterinary Report cards were omitted from this edition - may be of some interest to a collector.
