“Dad, I have a question. Are bugs good to eat?” asked Little Nick as he chewed on his vegies. “Let’s not talk about such silly things at the dinner table, Son,” his Father replied. After dinner was over and they were watching TV,  the Father inquired, “Now Son, what did you want to ask me earlier when we were having dinner?” “Oh, nothing,” the boy said.  “There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”

VH2H – Head to Head Betting

VICBET H2H Betting is unique to us and is available every race day and night in two groups of three. It is the three Favourites (1st, 2nd and 3rd) combined in one H2H outcome and the second H2H is the 4th, 5th and 6th Favourites combined, excluding the Fav if it is Odds-on (under $2). This is a moving dynamic market so as the odds change for the actual race the odds will change for the H2H outcome. Also, you can pick your own H2H outcome, then simply go to our Live Chat or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price it up for you….

The Doomben 10,000 was first run in 1933 and was won by Wallun. It was originally known as the Doomben Newmarket Handicap (1933-1945). It was changed to the Doomben 10,000 in 1946 when 10,000 pounds in prize money was on offer and at this time it was the richest sprint race in Australia. The Doomben 10,000 is run over 1,200m under Weight For Age conditions and has been a Group 1 race since 1980. The race was reduced from its traditional 1,350m with a revamp of the carnival becoming the first of the Brisbane Winter Carnival sprints in 2017. Notable winners of the Doomben 10,000 include Bernborough (1946), Aquanita (1961), Winfreux (1965), Black Onyx (1969/70), Baguette (1971), Maybe Mahal (1977), Manikato (1979), Campaign King (1988), Prince Trialia (1990/91), Chief De Beers (1995/98), Falvelon (2001/02), Bel Esprit (2003), Takeover Target (2007), Apache Cat (2008/09), Hot Danish (2010), Boban (2015), Redzel (2017) and English (2018). T.J. Smith is the most successful Trainer with six wins and Jockey George Moore has five wins…..


Many people think we are one of those Corporate outfits but that is not the case. With an emphasis on Horse Racing solely we are the Old Fashioned type of Bookmakers (four generations going back to 1941) concentrating purely on Horse Racing, no Sports, Harness or Greyhounds . My Late Father Allen Cleary was a Bookmaker from 1956 – 2006, his Uncle Bob was a Bookmaker from 1941 – 1961. Today it is myself Rod and my Son Tim sharing the reins. We are NOT Corporates, we work occasionally On Course at the Melbourne Metro Meetings on the Rails, however the vast majority of our turnover is Online. Once again your referrals are always very much appreciated and one of the main sources of us sourcing new Clients so thanks very much in advance…….


If you are new to VICBET in recent times a big welcome, if you have had an established account and have misplaced your login details, jump on the Live Chat, reply here to the VNEWS  or FREECALL 1300-126126…… We will forward your details to you by text and email…..
