A man is walking through his local mall and notices a Mexican book store. He decides to go in because he has never seen a Mexican book store before. He browses through the store and finally asks the clerk, “Do you have the book on Donald Trump’s foreign policies with Mexico?” The clerk replies, “F*ck you, get out, stay out!” The man replies, “Yeah, that’s the one!”


On Tuesday the biggest winning wager with us was at Flemington:

  • Flemington Race 10 – Exhilarates $4k Fixed at $7 – Credit of $24k to the VICBET Client…..

This week’s $100 FREE VBET goes to Michael Y. Thanks for the continued patronage Michael, also thanks to everyone for sending the jokes in (some good, some not so good) and the feedback by Live Chat or email to…..

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 up for you.


The highlight is the Group 1 Oaks accompanied by two Group 3 races at Flemington. Hawkesbury also hosts the Listed Ladies Day Cup.


We will be updating the website in 2021, any feedback on improvements you would like to see then please let us know……The best feedback via return email wins a FREE $250 bet on Saturday……

Simply reply to the VNEWS after placing your wager or jump on Live Chat and we will amend the odds for you.

The VRC Oaks was first run in 1861. Those who like to back favourites in the VRC Oaks would have fond memories of results at Flemington in the first decade of the 21st century. Eight of the 10 VRC Oaks from 2001 to 2010 were won by the punters’ pick, including Samantha Miss at $1.85 and Faint Perfume at $1.65. But the 2500 metre event has been slim pickings for the favourite since, with Kirramosa the only winner to have justified the faith with some runners who were around the price Montefilia is in this year’s edition – the David Payne-trained filly is $1.85 with VICBET now. Notable winners of the VRC Oaks include Miami Bound (2019), Jameka (2015), Dear Demi (2012), Mosheen (2011), Samantha Miss (2008), Miss Finland (2006), Serenade Rose (2005), Special Harmony (2003), Magical Miss (2001), Grand Archway (1998), Arborea (1993), Slight Chance (1992), Richfield Lady (1991), Research (1988), Rose Of Kingston (1981), November Rain (1965), Surround (1976), Denise’s Joy (1975), Light Fingers (1964), Evening Peal (1955), Frances Tressady (1923), Furious (1921) and Briseis (1876)….


We are the Old Fashioned type of Bookmakers (four generations going back to 1941). 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 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 in advance…….
