More advice than a guide, I believe this is actually unmissable as is part of the story line.

To win the race I would recommend racing manually and going at a steady speed. Look on the map and see where it starts and try to gauge the stamina to where you are on the course.

I lost my first race as didn't use the map and finished with nearly all my stamina. Then second race finished about 10 seconds before the AI and still with well over half my stamina. Popped as loaded back into the jockey lounge.
HalycopterThis didn't pop for me during the storyline race so I assume you have to do it in the Gold Saucer.

DaffyioneHi buddy, for me I did it in the story mission, that's why I thought it was unmissable. I failed the first race and won the second and it popped.

Clad masterIt's glitched,like the PC and PS4 version.It could glitch for the storyline and you must win a race by yourself later to unlock it

ErnaPA really easy way to do this is by Holding down RB and RT, this will make your Stamina Regenerate very quickly and you can hold down the B Button to sprint for pretty much the entire Race

Sabin VIif this achievement didn't unlock for you during the Storyline Chocobo Race.. don't worry just catch a wild chocobo feed it with some greens and do 1 small track race and the achievement will pop.. btw you can also use the Gold Chocobo just make sure to feed him some greens before you start racing!

TYtheROCK27Okay after some trial and error when you are doing the race to get out of the prison leave it on automatic DO NOT SWITCH TO MANUAL. The third chocobo Esther gave me won all on its own being on automatic and the achievement popped. You are welcome in advance and happy gaming!

Paralyze33I got this on the prison race, but I had to reload my save twice. I used the stamina glitch and did not use 3x speed up when it unlocked. After you win, don't hit any buttons. For whatever reason, this achievement is really glitchy and has a hard time recognizing you've won.

STOUTASSASSIN67pretty sure there's some sort of minimum requirement for doing the "easy winning" strategy of holding RB+RT as my class c Chocobo even when sprinting the whole time gets last place and I've given my Chocobo hundreds of greens

StahliChrisAt the prison race I failed twice then won but the achievement didn't pop. I then reloaded a save just before and it popped during Barrets story in the house. Weird that
