English term or phrase: rouges and touts
During the horseracing fixture in Galway in August the whole country seems to shut down and head for the west where the likes of Government leaders, rouges and touts mix with the rest and best of mankind that Ireland can muster
Anneken
de bookmakers en spionnen (of ook: sjacheraars)
Explanation:
De volgende referentie gaf me een antwoord op wat wordt bedoeld met 'rouges'(via www.google.com):

My site currently has a lot of information about who is winning money at horseracing.

I would like to put in some good football tipsters as well.

I know there are a few rouges out there who will promise the earth, take your money and run. On the other hand I believe there are a handful that are genuine guys who do there best to make consistant profits for their clients.

Vandaar 'bookmakers', een in het Nederlands erkend woord (zie 'Groene Boekje').

'Touts' zijn 'spionnen (omtrent renpaarden' volgens mijn Wolters' Woordenboek Engels-Nederlands.

Je kunt er misschien ook 'bookmakers en sjacheraars' van maken, want de auteur laat zich ironisch-pejoratief uit over het soort mensen die zich mengen tussen de regeringsleiders; 'to tout' betekent immers ook 'sjacheren'.
