If you're new to horse racing the jargon can be a little overwhelming.
Let's look at a sample of some common lingo:
On the bridle. Going. Flight or Free Running. Blanket Finish. Double Carpet. Cut in the Ground. Rag Odds. Conditional Jockey. Bar the Rest. Stuck Into Him After the Last. Black Type. Blowout. She's Quite Green... my brain hurts - and that's not another saying!

The list of phrases used at the track and in the book is neverending and can prove quite daunting if you're not well-initiated.
But have no fear.
