A handicap horse race is where the horses are assigned weights.  The better horses will have to carry more weight under their saddle, while those not as good will carry less.  The weight assignments are assessed by the stewards at the track.

The reason for the "Handicap" is for the stewards to make the horses as even as possible before the start, this makes the race much better in quality and theoretically should make the payouts better with the betting money spread out more evenly.
