Pre betting exchanges, on-course bookmakers used to have a patter to try to entice you to bet with them!

Here are just a few I remember and who said them!

Last chance to get your bus fare home! (My late, great, old boss, the original AJH, not to be confused with the firm currently trading as AJH)

The river or the razor! (My late, great, old boss, the original AJH, not to be confused with the firm currently trading as AJH)

You can have whatever you want Darling! (My late, great, old boss, Alan Pye trading as Duggie Pye)

You're in luck, we're having a half price sale today! ('The Weasel', on any Epsom Derby Day)

None of the present day race course bookies say anything, too busy having it back on here. No need for them to shout the odds out like they used to because they are all the same price on every board.

What a race!
Report screaming from beneaththewaves August 7, 2018 5:41 PM BST
Some of the post-race patter was good too, especially if you had money to collect.

"Could you come back later?"
"Could you come back after the next race?"
Or, most unnervingly of all, "could you come back after I've got this next favourite in the book?"
Report doantwin2easy August 7, 2018 5:45 PM BST
"Another favourite" as the only winning favourite on the card bangs in.

My Old Mate Bowler Bill Osborne ...

If your horse don't run , you get your money back
If it don't run fast enough you've had it.

My other old Mate Racing Raymond ..

Can I oblige ?
