About us

Strategic Designs Ltd is the market leader in creating accurate and in-depth horse and greyhound racing strategy games. Responsible for the ‘Starters Orders’ series and ‘Greyhound Manager’ our games have been acclaimed by the racing press for their realism and accurate reflection of the sports.

Founded in 2003 and based near Manchester in the UK our first product, ‘John McCriricks Starters Orders‘ (endorsed by the famous racing celebrity), was released online in 2003 and later published by Focus Multimedia and is still available in-store today. Starters Orders 2 was released in November 2005 both online and on CD-Rom. Greyhound Manager 1 was released in March 07 and contains many ‘firsts’ for a greyhound management sim including realistic races, breeding and betting. Starters Orders 3 was released in 2008 and for the first time ever simulated realistic hurdle and fence races. Starters Orders 4 was released in December 2009 with all new graphics and a raft of new innovative features and remains the market leader in PC Horse racing games. Greyhound Manager 2 was released late 2010.

Our games are developed by racing fans and experts and designed for the racing fan. Our games are considered the best hard core racing sims available by some way and we have many customers who spend their days working within the racing industry.

Strategic Designs Ltd., was founded by ‘veteran’ horse racing sim developer, Mark Loveday, who has worked on sports sims since the late 1980′s.
