    drop a parcel

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    “But if you haven’t dropped a parcel over the race” I said, “why are you looking so rattled?”

    parcel = a collection of things (for example paper money) wrapped or boxed together

    drop a parcel = lose a bunch of money at a race-course

    Thanks for your efforts.
