RACING PHRASE BOOK

UNDERSTANDING THE LANGUAGE OF RACING

Do not be put off by the STRANGE TERMS you may hear on the racetrack. Like any traveller in a strange country, the NOVICE RACEGOER will soon PICK UP a smattering of the LANGUAGE, and then rapidly become fluent. The following might help those RACEGOERS keen to enhance their LANGUAGE SKILLS.

ACCUMULATOR bet involving two or more selections in different races: winnings from one are placed on the next ALLOWANCE is the weight concession the horse is given to compensate for its rider’s inexperience ALL WEATHER RACING Flat racing which takes place on an artificial surface AMATEUR (rider) on racecards, their names are prefixed by Mr, Mrs, Captain, etc., to indicate their amateur status APPRENTICE / CONDITIONAL young jockey tied by annually renewed contract to a licensed trainer while he or she is learning the business of race-riding - they can claim an Allowance depending on how many races that they have won BACKWARD used of a horse which needs time to mature CLAIMER of a race: a claiming race; of a jockey: an apprentice/conditional COLT male, ungelded horse up to four- years-old COURSE SPECIALIST horse which tends to run well at a particular track DAM mother of a horse DISTANCE the length of a race: 5 furlongs is the minimum and the 4 miles, 2 1/2 furlongs of the Grand National the longest. Also, the margin by which a horse wins or is beaten by the horse in front: this ranges from a short head to ‘by a distance’ (more than 30 lengths); a ‘length’ is measured from the horse’s nose to the start of its tail DISTANCE an unmarked point 240 yards from the winning post (thus ‘below the distance’ means closer home than that point) DRAW for Flat racing only, describes a horse’s position in the starting stalls,

drawn randomly the day before EVENS or EVEN MONEY when your stake exactly equals your winnings thus £5 at evens wins a further £5 FILLY female horse up to four-years-old FOAL horse of either sex from the time of its birth until 1 January the following year FURLONG 220 yards (one eighth of a mile) GELDING castrated horse GOING the description of conditions underfoot on the racecourse. Official Jockey Club going reports progress as follows: Heavy - soft - good to soft good - good to firm - firm - hard GREEN (of a horse) inexperienced HAND unit of four inches in which a horse’s height is measured, at the shoulder JOLLY betting parlance for the favourite in a race - the horse with the shortest odds JUDGE official responsible for declaring the finishing order of a race and the distances between the runners JUVENILE two-year-old horse MAIDEN horse which has not won a race MARE female horse five years and over MONKEY betting parlance for £500 ODDS ON odds where the winnings are less than the stake (which is of course returned to you): thus a winning £2 bet at 2-1 on wins you £1 OFF THE BIT/OFF THE BRIDLE describes a horse being pushed along by his jockey, losing contact with the bit in his mouth ON THE BIT/ON THE BRIDLE describes a horse going well within himself, still having a grip on the bit


OVER THE TOP where a horse is said to have gone if he has passed his peak for the season PACE ‘up with the pace’ means close to the leaders; ‘off the pace’ means some way behind the leaders PADDOCK area of the racecourse incorporating the pre-parade ring, parade ring and winner’s enclosure PATTERN the elite races, divided in Flat racing into Groups One, Two, Three and Listed. PENALTY weight added to the allotted handicap weight of a horse which has won since the weights were originally published PHOTO FINISH electronic photographic device which determines minimal distances in a close finish PLATE shoe worn by horse for racing PONY betting parlance for £25 RULE 4 betting rule covering deductions made from winning bets if a horse is withdrawn after the betting market has been formed but before the ‘Under Starter’s Orders’ signal; the amount deducted depends on the price of the withdrawn horse RUN FREE describes a horse going too fast, usually early in the race, to allow it to settle SCOPE the potential for physical development in a horse SIRE father of a horse SPREAD A PLATE when a racing plate or horseshoe becomes detached from an animal’s hoof, this sometimes causes a delay while the horse is re-shod SPRINGER/STEAMER a horse which shortens dramatically in the betting SP/STARTING PRICE the official price of a horse at which bets are settled in the betting shops STEWARDS the panel of men and women - usually a total of four - who are responsible for seeing that the Rules of Racing are adhered to STEWARDS’ ENQUIRY enquiry by the stewards into the running of a race TIC-TAC the bookmaker’s method

of relaying odds information on the racecourse, by means of hand signals WEIGH IN/WEIGH OUT weighing of jockey before and after a race to ensure that the correct weight has been carried; the announcement ‘weighed in’ signals that the result is official, and all bets can be settled YANKEE combination bet involving four selections in different races: six doubles, four trebles and one four-horse accumulator - eleven bets YEARLING horse of either sex from 1st January to 31st December of the year following its birth.

How to place a bet with a racecourse bookmaker: 1. Pick your Racehorse, look around for the best odds on course, try to proffer the correct stake money for your wager. 2. Ask the Bookmaker for your bet, state the racecard number of your chosen horse. Listen to the bookmaker repeat your bet to his clerk, correct bookmaker if he makes a mistake and receive your Betting Ticket as a receipt for your bet. 3. Should your horse happen to win, present your betting ticket to the bookmaker, check your winnings. 4. In conjunction with The RCA, the bookmakers have introduced standard each-way terms. Bookmakers will provide these terms, or better, when offering each-way betting. • Fewer than 3 runners - all on to win • 3 or 4 runners – 1/5 odds a place 1,2 • 5 – 7 runners (inclusive) – 1/4 odds a place 1,2 • 8 or more runners – 1/5 odds a place 1,2,3 • Handicaps with 12 to 15 runners (inclusive) – 1/4 odds a place 1,2,3 • Handicaps with 16 to 21 runners (inclusive) – 1/5 odds a place 1,2,3,4 • Handicaps with 22 or more runners – 1/4 odds a place 1,2,3,4 5. In the unlikely event of a dispute after adhering to this procedure, the bookmaker will tell the punter to approach the Ring Official, who will advise the racegoer as to his rights. 6. Some course bookmakers have minimum stakes.e.g. £1, £5 or £10 but small backers are catered for in the racecourse Betting Shops.

Star Ratings Explained

Each horse has been given a star rating, these are defined below: HHHHH Selected to win the race. HHHHI Good chance of being placed. HHHII By no means out of the reckoning but at least one or two hold stronger claims. HHIII Unlikely to win but not totally without hope. HIIII Can be given little or no chance. Official BHA Rating The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part in a sufficient number of races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). Form Guide The figures in red display the horse’s previous form, with the number denoting finishing position. The number on the right shows the runners most recent result, with abbreviations used also. A layoff from racing is shown with either - or /. CD - Course and distance winner; BF - Beaten favourite; F - Fell; B - Brought down; P - Pulled up; R - Refused; S - Slipped up; U - Unseated rider; R - Ran out. The form guide is provided to help you pick which horse will carry your money in the race. Read the Timeform comment carefully and try to weigh up the horse’s previous runs against the conditions of the race. FORM ANALYSIS - A CLOSER LOOK

AGAINST ALL ODDS was outclassed in a Haydock listed event last time, but she can show the benefit of that experience now returning to calmer waters for her in-form yard. Cup of Coffee was going best at the time of her Catterick fall, so she’s a threat, while it will be interesting to see what the market makes of Petite Dame on first start for Alex Hales.

HORSE WELFARE Here at Wetherby Racecourse we are committed to minimising risks, dealing quickly and humanely with injuries, and maintaining the highest possible quality of life for the animals in our care. At every meeting we have three specially qualified Equine Vets appointed to look after the welfare of all horses in action. There is also a British Horseracing Authority Veterinary Officer in attendance. During the race three vets follow the action from the centre of the course and can attend to a horse in the same response time as the Paramedic Teams responsible for treating the injured jockeys. It is standard policy that in the event of a horse requiring veterinary treatment whilst on site, screens will be erected round the horse. It is designed to afford the vet and the patient some privacy. Please do not assume the worst. 19

have been rated from 0 to 135. In a handicap the weight that each of the runners carries is determined by their official handicap rating which is based on their level of form shown so far. The aim is to ensure competitive racing by asking the higher rated horses to carry more weight than lower rated rival. As a guide, horses rated 60 tend to be at the lower end of the scale whilst the very best performers would be rated as high as 170.

RACE DESCRIPTION This is a two miles handicap hurdle race for four-year-olds and upwards which

have been rated from 0 to 130. Once a horse has qualified for a handicap rating this is regularly reassessed. A below-par effort could result in a reduced rating whilst a strong performance could see the rating increased. Occasionally, horses are entered to race before their handicap rating has been reviewed and so to avoid recent winners being un-penalised they are allotted a mandatory penalty – usually 7lb.

Designed for young horses that, it is presumed, will go jumping in time; only debutantes or horses that have run in this type of race, or an Irish or French equivalent, are qualified to run. If they have previously run on the flat or in hurdle races or steeplechases (except for point-to-points), they are barred from entry. This particular contest is restricted to horses aged four, five and six and will be run over two miles.

PLAY SMARTER

Following a runner-up effort in Ireland during the summer, LEBOWSKI went through the race at Huntingdon in December like a useful sort, only to be collared close home. He can make amends assuming he takes up this engagement, very likely at the chief expense of Nothing To Ask and Thunder Rock.
