Australian Horse Racing – Why You Should Take Notice

With the introduction of all weather tracks in the UK, the need to look overseas for your horse racing is greatly reduced but even when the British calendar doesn’t fall foul of the elements, there are many good reasons to head down under to make some additional profits.

At Mathematician Betting, our main aim is to bring you value picks from all the top meetings in the UK and Ireland but the growth of the sport in Australia means that the option to get involved shouldn’t be ignored. With the ease of internet betting, it’s also very straightforward to stake with an outlet such as Betfair who have a major Australian presence.

Major events

Australia’s most famous horse race is the Melbourne Cup and this is the one occasion where bettors from across the globe are most likely to get involved in the Aussie side of the sport. Not only is this the best known event outside of the country, it’s also the world’s richest two mile handicap.

Look out for this race which takes place on the first Tuesday in November on the Flemington Race Course in Melbourne Victoria. Melbourne also plays host to the Victoria Derby which kick starts the spring calendar but there are big meeting all across the country, throughout the year.

Other top races include the Golden Slipper Stakes in Sydney and the Perth Cup while the highlight of the winter schedule is the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

The Flemington in Melbourne is arguably the country’s best known venue but in total, there are 360 registered courses in the whole of Australia. These include the Ascot in Perth, Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Randwick in Sydney and Eagle Farm in Brisbane. It’s a vast country, but it has more than its fair share of international class race courses and as you’ll understand by now, Australia takes this sport very seriously.

How To Bet

Until fairly recently, betting on an Australian horse racing was dominated by the Tab or Totepool system. On course stakes are all part of a day at the races and some good prices can be found but the growth in online betting means that today, there are far more options and in general, better odds can be claimed.

Betfair’s peer to peer trading will always provide some real value and the company have a great interest in Australian sport as a whole. They have provided sponsorship for the Ashes cricket series between Australia and England while horse racing remains a significant part of the whole operation.

So, as opposed to taking the standard prices, it pays to look for the best odds in order to increase your margins. All the usual single and each way bets are available on the Australian markets while accumulators can also be used. Essentially, the system is the same even though the action may be taking place on the other side of the world.

Stay In Touch

Naturally, betting on any sporting event is far more exciting if you can watch the action unfold while the relatively new phenomenon of cashouts can only be taken advantage of if you can actually see what’s happening.

Live Australian horse racing is largely overlooked by the main satellite channels but this can easily be picked up by live streaming. Certain sports bookmakers will provide this or you can access the action via a third party company for just a few pounds a month.

Primarily, our aim is to give you the best value from UK racecourses and while we will continue to do that, Australian racing is growing in popularity and it should certainly get more coverage than it receives right now.

For now however we ourselves will stick with what we know best and that is providign high quality betting advice for our clients in the uk and irish racing markets.
