I'm learning now Horayos, and it seems to me that Rashi there is somewhat different. Too verbose, I would say. Are there any sources that in Horayos Rashi is indeed Rashi, or it is not?

It is not really written by Rashi. See here. – jake Jul 30 '12 at 14:58
@jake Looks like an answer. – Double AA Jul 30 '12 at 16:29
@jake Good catch. It really was too much verbose :) – Double AA Jul 30 '12 at 17:06
@DoubleAA indeed :) – jutky Jul 30 '12 at 18:54

When I learned a few of the Dapim in Horayos almost a couple years ago, my Chavrusa told me that according to some opinions, the commentary attributed to Rashi was not written by him. Therefore, it is not called Rashi, and is instead called Mefareish.

Cf: Rashi in Horayos

(FWIW, this former chavrusa of mine now gives an Amud Yomi shiur on Masecheta Shabbos that you can access at www.livestream.com/levshas at 9:30pm CST.) – Adam Mosheh Jul 30 '12 at 15:01
