A

Age

Every horse shares a "birthday" of January first. A horse becomes one year old on the first of January after he or she is born, and turns two, one year later - regardless of the actual date of his or her birth.

Allowance Race

A race other than claiming for which the racing secretary drafts certain conditions to determine weights.

B

Blanket Finish

Or photo-finish in which two or more horses are very close at the finish line (one can "throw a blanket over them"). Very common in American Quarter Horse racing.

Break

When a horse gallops, instead of trotting or pacing, it's on a break. The driver must get the horse out of the way of the others, must not improve his position, and must attempt to get the horse back on its proper gait. A horse is not automatically disqualified by making a break.

Bullring

A racetrack with either a half-mile or 5/8ths mile oval.

BACK TO TOP


E

Entry

A horse entered in a race is called an entry. On rare occasions, two or more horses are said to be coupled and run as an entry, comprising a single wagering unit. A wager on one horse of an entry is a wager on both.

Exacta

A wager that picks the first two finishers in a race in the exact order of finish. Also referred to as Perfecta.

Exacta Box

A wager in which all possible combinations using a given number of horses are covered.
