: : When someone says they gave you the full S.P., meaning something like they gave you all the information, does anyone know what the "S.P." stands for?

: : Many thanks

: I haven't heard it before. It could be Straight Poop.

It's a betting term and means 'Starting Price' - ie you get the odds when the race starts,and not any lower or higher odds that may have applied before.
