nope, the first one was just gallop racer and it was on the original ps
2003 was the third game out, second one on the ps2
it definitely is drastically different from 2004 xD I bought 2004 and I just couldn't get used to the way it was set up! I played it once or twice and then went back to 2003 haha
Yeah, I want to go back to the first Gallop Racer but it doesn't play anymore ATM. I'm getting use to the 2004 game though, I actually won the Filly Cup!! the different trainers is crazy though and I'm still waiting to get a pasture.
