Reset the count mid game or near the end to get the extra endings. Also, the endings are slightly different depending on the gender of the horse.

- Good Ending 1: Win in all the races. It doesn't matter on how many you participate in, it can be 1 out of 1 or 17 out of 17, but you need to win on every one of them.

- Good Ending 2: Participate in over 8 races and don't win all of them.

- Bad Ending 1: Participate in between 1 and 7 races and don't win all of them.
