Weight
The amount of weight, including the jockey, which the horse has to carry.

Many jockeys are on strict diets so they can 'make the weight' for their rides.

Riders on the Flat generally weigh less than jump jockeys.

Top weight in the Epsom Derby is nine stone, but generally 12 stone for the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
