scratch sheet(redirected from scratch sheets)
A racing publication that provides detailed odds and information of racehorses and their jockeys to prospective gamblers. Also known as a "dope sheet." I quit gambling five years ago, but I still like to look over the scratch sheets at the race tracks just to feel a little bit of that rush again.
