A woman and her 12-year-old son were riding in a taxi and passing through Kings Cross in Sydney. It was pouring rain and all the prostitutes were standing under the awnings trying to stay dry. “Mom,” said the boy, “what are all those women doing?” “They’re waiting for their husbands to get off work,” she replied. The taxi driver turns around and says, “Geez lady, why don’t you tell him the truth? They’re hookers, boy! They have sex with men for money.” The little boy’s eyes get wide and he says, “Is that true Mom?” His mother, glaring hard at the taxi driver, answers “Yes.” After a few minutes the kid asks, “Mom, if those women have babies, what happens to them?” She said, “They all become taxi drivers!”


Last Saturday the largest winning wager with us was at Caulfield:

  • Caulfield Race 4 – Plaquette $1,500 Fixed at $9.50 – Credit of $12,750 to the VICBET Client…..

And the largest losing wager with us was at Rosehill:

  • Rosehill Race 8 – Ashim $10k Fixed at $3.10 Loss of $10k to the VICBET Client..

Don’t forget, we have the Daily Big Bets appearing in “Real Time” on the VICBET Home Page on the Main website, they appear as the largest wager first……


This week’s $100 FREE VBET goes to Peter H. Thanks for  setting up an account in April Peter, all the names go in the barrel and today you are the lucky winner. Good Luck with your free $100 VBET….

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….


Not a lot of action this upcoming week, Victoria has the first Race-free week which is a brilliant idea, shame it isn’t nation-wide. The only upcoming feature is the Listed Lightning Stakes at Morphettville on Saturday……


We try to add all the future races online but if there was an important race we did not have online then let us know and we can price it up for you….


The Future Races are all online now with eight races to have a browse at. This week the VSPECIAL is in the $15 Million Everest. Nature Strip is a Superstar and heads the market as a $4.60 favourite. This week we are offering a VBOOST increase up to $6 for the Champ. Simply reply to the VNEWS after placing your wager or jump on Live Chat and we will amend the odds for you. Note it is $1k MAX stake and the first 25 people only, expires at midnight Friday 30th July……NOTE: Current active VICBET account holders only…..


This week we have a VLOAD Promo and this after the last VNEWS VPromo for the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes saw us refund $4,785 back into Clients accounts as free cash bets. So this week between now and midnight on Friday Evening the 30th July your first credit card or POLi deposit will have 20% added up to it up to a MAX of $100.

It will appear as “VNEWS VLOAD Promo”…..


So why is the Horses Birthday celebrated on August 1st in the Southern Hemisphere. Racehorses have the same birthday to make it easier to keep track of horses’ ages. The birth date is set to coincide with the animals’ breeding cycle and is the reason horses’ birthdays are different in the Northern Hemisphere and those in the Southern Hemisphere. It is January 1st in the Northern Hemisphere……


With an emphasis on Horse Racing solely, at the present time, 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…..

Finally we are the only Bookmaker doing the Best of the Best (BOB) on all Australian Mainland Race Meetings seven days a week plus we offer a service on Overseas races through to about 3am every night……

Good Luck and Happy Punting…….
