Its called 'Instant Racing'.

Has anyone done this?

In instant racing, players bet on previously run horse races, using a small amount of data (such as the anonymous trainer's winning percentage) to pick a horse. The outcome is determined by which horse wins the race, but the games are built to mimic video lottery terminals or slot machines.

Way back in the 80s at the Montreal casino they had a plastic replica of a track with 9 horses in the gate.

People would sit around the track which had betting terminals and a toteboard which displayed the odds and you could actually bet on the horses with real money.

I once bet a horse at 6-1 and my horse led all the way and just an inch from  the finish line the darn thing just stopped dead in its track and let the rest of the horses pass him by.

That was my first and last bet at the 'track'.

that machine used to be in almost all of the vegas sports books.  they used to have another that show quarter horse races and you bet with the odds as your only guide.  little more fun than a slot machine for us horse players, but still essentially a slot machine

They have them at Oaklawn, and I've played. It's kind of a boring machine, with minimal pp's you can consult.

People like it better than no gaming at all, though.
