R

Rag
Slang term for the outsider of the field.

Rated stakes
A handicap flat race for which the range of weights shall be limited to not more than 14lb (except with the permission of the directors).

Re run
A greyhound race which was previously started but not resolved due to technical difficulty is usually re-run later in the meeting.

Return
This is the total amount you receive for a winning bet (winnings plus stake).

Ringer
This is a horse (or greyhound) entered in a race under another's name - usually a good runner replacing a poorer one.

Rouf
Slang for odds of 4/1.

Rule 4
If a selection is withdrawn from an event before its start, any bets placed before the market has been reformed will have their odds amended accordingly. The amendment will be made as an adjustment from all winnings, and this deduction will depend on the price of the withdrawn selection. These deductions are based on Tattersall's Rule 4, details of which can be found under our horse racing rules.

Run in
This is the distance from the home turn (or last obstacle) to the winning post.
