Learn how to read a Swedish race card and to understand all the abbreviations.
At the top of the page is the race number and the types of bets available on the race. This example is the 3rd race of the day and the 2nd leg of the V64, the main betting form that day.
In Sweden, the horse’s race number is the same as the horse’s draw in the stalls.
After the name of the horse follows it’s current handicap rating, what weight the horse will carry in the race, and the name of the jockey. Underneath this line, there is information on the horse’s age, colour, sex, pedigree, breeder (”uppfödare”), owner (”ägare”), and trainer. The far right column states the number of runs, first, second and third-place finishes, and earnings (career total, current year only and past year only).
