OK, here's a simple and sure-fire way to win all of these races. Notice that I didn't mention words like fast or quick. This is still going to take you about 4 hours of monotonous rabbit wrangling.

This strategy is based on having a maxed out bunny at your disposal. Later in this solution I will explain how to max out your bunny, but for those of you who just want to know how to win the damn races, here it is:

Rule #1: Do NOT touch the left stick. You can't control the bunny anyway, and this rule will keep you from getting unduly frustrated and yelling things like, "Why won't this effing rabbit go where the hell I tell it to?!?!?".

Rule #2: Do NOT jump - ever ("B" button). Jumping as an offensive manuever is worthless. It stops your bunny dead in its tracks and it only stuns the other bunnies about half the time. Don't even bother jumping to avoid being stunned by another rabbit. Jumping takes almost as long as getting over being stunned. Also, Rule #3 will let you avoid getting stunned 75-85% of the time anyway.

Rule #3: Hit your dash ("A" button) every second or third hop for the entire race. With a maxed out stamina on your bunny, this will use approximately a third of your stamina bar per lap (races are 3 laps) with a tad extra if you need a burst of speed in the home stretch.

This technique is going to keep your stupid, drunken rabbit in a permanently dashed state. For most of the races the other bunnies will be left in the dust. Don't worry about being behind in the first lap, or even well into the second lap. The other bunnies all poop out during the third lap. Don't worry about getting stunned occasionally either. Your perma-dash will more than make up the difference. Remember that your bunny can only be stunned if he is actually touching the ground when another bunny jumps. By staying continually dashed, your bunny will be spending a goodly amount of his time in the air. Using this technique I earned the 100 victories easily, while only losing maybe 5 races the entire time.

Now, if your drunken rabbit is still a wimp and needs to get his stats boosted, here's what to do:

Note: This is much easier and faster if you do this after completing the game so that you will have access to the transporters. You will also need to discover the recipes for:
Miracle Pie
Stamina Pie
Speed Pie
Acceleration Pie

First go to Peppita's store in Tatroi (the grocery store) and buy 20 of each of the following:
Common Egg
Rich Cheese
Raw Animal Meat

Now head on over to Astral to the first outdoor item stand you come to and buy 20:
Sweet Fruit

Boogey on back to the Calnus and buy 20 of each of the following from L'il Vending Machine 2:
Fresh Cream
Pie Crusts

Head to the back of the ship and visit everyone's favorite purple helper, Welch. Go to Cooking and have Raime whip up all of the following:
6 Acceleration Pies (+3 Acceleration)
20 Speed Pies (+3 Speed)
20 Stamina Pies (+3 Stamina)
20 Miracle Pies (+3 random stat that is not already maxed out)

Note: Only make Speed Pies until you run out of Lemons. Lemons cannot be bought at any store and must be harvested, so after you run out we'll be relying on Miracle Pies.

You will need to return to the Vending Machine for pie crusts as needed.

Now hold hands with everyone and skip back to Tatroi to the Coliseum. Stuff all of these goodies into your already grossly obese bunny and watch his stats grow. Now make the shopping rounds again, have Raime get her bake on, and feed the bunny again. Rinse and repeat until said bunny can eat no more.

Note: Once a stat is maxed out (200 points) there is no need to continue making that pie. If you didn't have enough Lemons to max out the Speed stat, continue making Miracle Pies until you do so.
