Horse Racing Terms – Jargon – Lingo – Glossary

The world of horse racing is indeed a “world in itself” and contains somewhat of it’s own language when spoken about. This page was created to define in glossary form all the terms, jargon and lingo one might hear while at the track or partaking in horse race betting.

While we have hired one of the most knowledgable horse handicappers on the planet to create this massive glut of information, it’s surely possible that we’ve missed a term or two so if you see something that needs to be added here, please, by all means, drop us a line and we’ll get’er done! Enjoy!

Listed below, you’ll find a glossary of horse racing related terms organized by letter of alphabet. Some letters didn’t have enough terms so were combined with other letters of the alphabet to create a full page effect. Enjoy!
