How were Roman chariot races like horse races today?

About the only resemblance Roman chariot races and our horse races have today is the betting on the outcome. True we have harness racing where one horse pulls a cart, but the horse has to be controlled, that is, he has to run at a pace or a trot. The Romans, however, had rather light weight racing chariots pulled by (usually) four horses and they ran at breakneck speed four times around the circuit.
