Ken Knight or KK as he is known and a friend Foyst are playing golf one day at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Ken is about to chip onto the green of the 17th when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. Foyst says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man KK.”  Ken then replies: “Yeah, well Louise and I were married 25 years.”

VH2H – Head to Head Betting

VICBET H2H Betting is available every race 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 text or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price up for you, this can be in a group of two or three. If you are new to VICBET send Tim a text and he will give you a free H2H wager up to $50, once a month……This is a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


All the talk is about the second running of the All-Star Mile worth $5m in total. Apart from all the action at Caulfield we have Group 1, 2 and 3 Racing at Rosehill this upcoming Saturday. There is also Group 1, 2 and 3 Racing in New Zealand including the Group 1 New Zealand Oaks. Today there is the running of the Group 2 Adelaide Cup and the Canberra Cup……


Since I commenced doing Internet Betting in 2005, many people have asked me about Multis. In short online it is one outcome into another and it can be Fixed, Top Fluc or Best Tote. What a lot people don’t realise is that the Multi can go over any two days, for example a Thursday night race at Pakenham into a Randwick race on the Saturday. Also for Multis that are more than two outcomes then simply text or Whatsapp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will put on for you…..


Up on the VICBET website there are 25+ Feature Races to choose from. There is lots of interest in the upcoming Golden Slipper on Saturday week at Rosehill. This week the VSpecial is for any of the four Favourites, you can have three rolls of the board above the displayed VICBET Odds. With Max Bet of $1k, up until Midnight on Friday 13th March, it is for the first 20 people. Simply place your wager at the current Fixed Odds and we will increase the odds for you by three rolls. For example we are currently $6 Farnan, with three rolls of the board this increases the odds to $7.50. You can send us a reminder by email at


If you have a Win Only Fixed Odds wager on the All-Star Mile between now and Friday and your selection runs second or third we will refund your stake up to $200…..


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.
