English term or phrase: place
Don't jinx her with place and show bets.

Context is horseracing.
Can't find any terms for either "place" or "show" in this context.

Hope you can help.
Thanks.

parie de la place


Explanation:
A "place bet" is a wager on the position in which a horse will finish a race (first, second, third, fourth. . .)

I am not sure if the above translation is exact lingo, but it carries the meaning.

Bonne chance!

Explanation:
Herre are a few references:

"Types of bets: Place and Show bets

A place bet is won, when the bet competitor finishes first or second, a show bet
is won, when the bet competitor finishes at least as third. Since the probabilities
to win such a bet are comparably high, the odds offered (by bookies) or to be
expected (at the tote) significantly lower than for win bets. Some gamblers bet
long shots to place or show, reasoning that they match sufficiently high odds with
bearable success probabilities"

"WIN, PLACE OR SHOW BETS

To place is to come in second, to show, third."
http://www.partyschool.com/drinkinggames/games/horserace.htm

"«pari «classé»» Type de pari tenu sur une course dont l'objet est de choisir un cheval pour terminer au premier, au deuxième ou au troisième rang selon le résultat officiel. (show)

«pari «placé»» Type de pari tenu sur une course dont l'objet est de choisir un
cheval pour terminer au premier ou au deuxième rang selon le résultat officiel.
