Introduction to racing terms

At best horse racing terms can be quite confusing but in some cases they mean absolutely nothing to the casual observer.

Hopefully this page will go some way to explaining what some of the racing terms mean and therefore spectators to enjoy our sport as much as posisble.

Point-to-Point racing differs from racing "under rules" because it is a purely amateur sport. Jockeys are not paid to race, apart from their expenses.
