I've been a sort of a punter for many years but don't place a lot on horses but there is a saying coming into racing lately which is fairly new to me.
When people are talking about horses they say it is completely exposed or unexposed. I been through all the sites on the web looking for these terms in horse racing circles but they aren't listed.
Can someone give me a good description of these terms please? I might be able to understand a bit better.
Thanks in advance.

from what i gather.........exposed means the horse has had quite a few races and his handicap mark or his full potential is there for all to see. Room for improvement in an exposed horse is minimal and the term exposed literally means punters are in the know to the horse's full potential.

Unexposed from my interpretation means a horse has not raced too much and therefore there is a lot of room for improvement as the horse has not been handicapped to their possible full potential. The horse's maximum form has maybe not fully be shown yet hence the term unexposed.

Personally i believe, when backing an unexposed horse over an exposed horse you are relying on the fact the unexposed horse will have improved. With an exposed horse you generally know what type of race the horse will run - if thats possible at all.

Hope it makes sense.........

Thanks hanssingh, I think I can get the gist of it now. Why don't they just say there is room for improvement in the horse or not?

ummm i think its because every horse has the potential for improvement and judging whether a horse is exposed or not is in the perception of the person reading the form.

'there is room for improvement' is 29 characters long whilst 'unexposed' is only 9. Space is at a premium in newspapers and race cards so such terms are used to reduce text.

Because the term unexposed is a literal meaning as to why people call it that, "the horse has not had its flaws exposed yet" - namely by the handicapper. I often use RPR's alongside bets in maidens and races involving lightly raced horses. RPR's can give you an idea of what level a horse has already achieved.

E.g

HORSE A is running a maiden for the 6th time, prior to this race, its RPR is 84.

HORSE B has ran twice, its RPR is 84. The fact that it has taken A 6 races to reach the level of what it has taken B to reach in 2, suggests to me that B has the scope to be of a higher RPR.

The one thing to watch out with exposed horses is when they move stables as the new trainer or just the move itself can bring about some improvement.
