Best Answer

Hanicapping is a complicated method which is practiced in racehorses to try and make the race more even. The best horses will be given the highest weight to carry, and the more inferior horses will carry less, the aim is too make the race more even chanced, although usually the best horses will do best because they will have the best jockeys, and probably very light jockeys.
