Bridge Jumper


Definition: A person who bets an unusually large sum on a single horse, like $100,000 to show. Refers to the fact that if they lose they may be jumping off the nearest bridge. You can make this work in your favor if you think the horse that has been bridge jumped will finish out of the money since that will result in huge pay-offs on the other horses.
