Red Dead Online Racing Tips

  • Tap X/A in time with your horse's gallop - this will use less stamina and keep your steed going at high speeds for longer periods of time.
  • Ride through Stamina pickups to extend your Horse’s sprinting time or quickly recover from a drained Horse Stamina core.
  • If your horse runs out of stamina during a race, you can hold Triangle or Y to respawn with a full tank.
  • Weapons pickups dole out firearms with limited ammo supplies – use a shotgun blast to quickly and easily takeout a checkpoint target or turn that weapon against your competition.
  • If you’re trailing behind, ride in your competitor’s slipstream to regenerate Horse Stamina quickly and gain a slight speed boost.
  • If you’re defending a lead you can kick your competitors to reduce their Horse Stamina levels with a slight chance of being able to knock them down.
