A foal is a baby horse, a colt is a male baby horse.

Foal = General term for a baby under 1. Male/Female
Yearling = Baby in the there 2nd year of life. (so they would be a year old) Male/Female
Colt = Male horse under the age of 4, unless gelded then he is called a gelding.
Filly = Female horse under the age of 4.
Philly = short for philidelphia or a really tasty sub. :P

There is the difference - in Philly, you don't have to say "Philly Cheese Steak" - it's redundant.

When I lived in Westchester County, NY (where I was born), we called them "wedges" - it's the only place in the country that calls them by that name.
