If anyoone knows how to activate the last to first ability on the itimediate challenge, I would be very grateful.

This truly is a pain as the game offers no advice as to when this ability kicks in. And yes I have tried getting from last to first, but I am thinking it has something to do with the timing of getting last to first.

Also this is probably one of teh more difficult games to 1K, purely because you need the platinum medals to unlock this achievement, just as you do with the quest challenges.

About the drop-in horse...

My firned got an S class horse on his first attempt, yet I got stuck with an E class 1000mtr horse for ages.

It wasn't until I completed the quest challenge for the first beginner horse, that I noticed the drop-in horse had become the S class horse.

Personally I think its one of two things...

1 : The game is bugged which is a crapper as I can't see them fixing it due to sales. Or until its released in America and Australia to see if the sales makes a difference.

2 : Doing other challenges might some how unlock horse for practice mode.

I doubt it's the second point though as that doesn't make much sense to do that, so its likely the game is bugged. It is a very lazy conversion from the PS2 games, but thats the japanese gaming market for you.

unfortunately ive done the first beginner horse so it cant be that.yeah i thought your point 2 was right also as in doing one thing does the other,but the quest challenges are all over the place for me..for instance one beginner horse the options are..first race win to progress..second..finish in top 2 then the third is win race..ive done both combos but i always end up on the race ive done of the two in next option..i'm losing my patience with this game!!!!..

Same problem as you Brako. Trying to complete the Practice Challenge on Intermediate "Last to First Ability". I think you must have to not only get an "Excellent" start but also "Excellent" balance during the race as well as "Excellent" drive. The starts not a problem, but trying to pace the horse during the race while not pushing the "bit" (D pad) up to high as reducing it down seems to result in a "good or normal" balance during the race. If you can't get this right its seems no matter if your in last coming into the straight or not the ability will not be triggered.

Was really looking forward to this game and while the season mode is good and I haven't lost a race in my first 50 starts on normal. The practice challenges leave alot to be desired.

Just to say i think game is bugged because ive done everything else in the game but still stuck with that 1000m horse!!! annoying cos i wanted to finish it but oh well.

I think game maybe bugged as well, need looking gift horses in the mouth achievement but it will not unlock. Anybody got any ideas on how to get it?

Last to first is triggered by the whip. Once your horse hits the top of the stretch, as long as you are last or even 2nd to last, whip the horse once and that should trigger "last to first"
