Basic Betting Terms
When you back a horse to Win, you win if your horse finishes first.
A horse scores a place when it finishes in the first three across the line. If there are only seven or less runners the horse must finish either first or second to place.
An each way bet is when you bet the same amount on the horse for a win and for a place. There is no collect for third place if there are less than eight runners (except late scratchings) where deductions could apply. If there is fewer than three runners, there is no place.
All Hold Tickets
An announcement by race stewards for punters to hold onto their tickets as they investigate an aspect of the race. This usually results in a refund for a late scratching or that a protest is pending. Always wait for the all clear from race stewards before throwing away your “losing” tickets.
