    Right I put 25 cent on a horse bet. 4 horses each way. Now I didn't really know what each way meant but I just did it anyway an it charged me 50 cent. I picked the horses cos I liked their names ....

    1,2, and 3 have all 'placed' whatever that means and i'm just waitin for the 3:25 race in Navan to kick off to see how number 4 does but it says on my racing slip thing that my potential returns are €564 ....... Who understands horse bets? I dunno how it works like. 564 must be if all the horses won or somethin.

    Sounds like you did an e/w accum which is 2 seperate bets at 25c each so that's the 50c.
    4 horses to win & 4 horses to place.
    I assume the 3 horses won as it sounds a lot for a place accum.
    E/W means you have backed the horses to win and backed him to be placed 1/2 places 7 runners or less, 3 places up to 15 runners and 4 places 16+ handicap.
    I'd say the returns of over €500 are for all 4 to win.

    No none of them won. I think the 564 was for if they all won. I won 8.34 haha. Better than a kick in the teeth though :)
