Final Furlong is a horse racing simulation video game where you sit on a fiberglass shaped horse and "ride" the horse to victory. Players must rock back & forth to speed up, and must pull the harness left or right to turn.
There is also a whip button to get the horse to spurt. The player selects a horse from the 6 horses available. Each horse has its own abilities, and the player must pace their horse accordingly. There are 5 different kinds of horse profiles to choose from, including Leader, Front Runner, Mid Runner and Strong Finisher, and there are 3 tracks to race on.
