A wife comes home late one night and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the blanket, she sees four legs instead of just her husband’s two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can. Once she’s done, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink. As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine. He says, “Hi darling, your parents have come to visit us, so I let them stay in our bedroom.

Did you say hello?


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

  • Flemington Race 5 – Marboosha $5k Fixed at $4.40 – Credit of $17k to the VICBET Client…..

And the largest losing wager with us was also at Flemington in the Newmarket:

  • Flemington Race 6 – September Run $10k BOB at $3 – Loss of $10k to the VICBET Client..

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 Sam J. Thanks for continued patronage Sam…..

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….


Another big week coming up with a Group 3 Race at Kembla Grange on Friday to kick us off! Saturday is an exciting day to look forward to with the $5 Million All Star Mile accompanied by a Group 2 race at Moonee Valley.

The All-Star Mile is a race like no other in Australia, with the fans choosing the horses that will compete – their ‘All Stars’. With a winner’s cheque for $2.25m and an overall prize purse of $5m, it is officially the richest mile race in the world. The All-Star Mile will be rotated around Melbourne’s three premier racetracks, Flemington, Caulfield and The Valley. The inaugural race at Flemington in March 2019 was won by Mystic Journey, the flying filly from Tasmania who cost just $11,000. The All-Star Mile takes its inspiration from Japan’s famous fan-voted race, the Arima Kinen. First run in 1956, the Arima Kinen was promoted to an international Group 1 race in 2007. Its popularity has continued to grow, with more than 1 million fans now voting for their favourite horses. Past winners include Deep Impact (2006), who was the world’s most valuable stallion before his passing in July 2019.


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…..

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 (Fixed and Middle Tote available) through to about 4am every night……

Good Luck and Happy Punting…….
