Two High School mates bump into each other at the Races at Flemington on Oaks Day. They had not seen each other for over 10 years. “Sorry Mate,” says the first man, “I am a bit nervous, I lost my wife, can’t seem to find her anywhere.” Second man replies, “Same, I can’t find mine either, how about we go and look for them together?”  “Sure,” says the first guy. “What does your wife look like?” “Eh well, she’s blonde, long hair, tall, slim body, well tanned, large breasts and she’s wearing a tight fitting low cut black dress.” “What about your wife? What does she look like ?” “Ahmmm, well we won’t worry about my wife for now !” says the first bloke. “Let’s go and find yours!”

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……This is a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


The Group One Blue Diamond is the highlight of the weekend’s upcoming races at Caulfield along with the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and the Group 1 Futurity Stakes. There is also three Group Two Races at Rosehill, more Group Racing at Caulfield, Group Racing from Matamata (NZ) and Group One Racing from Sha Tin on Sunday……


I often have Clients ask me about having a Multi Bet wager. On the VICBET website it is really easy, simply click on the two outcomes you would like, either TF, BT or Fixed (excluding BOB) and in the bet slip the option will appear for a Multi wager. This can also be done for the Win, Each Way and the Place. This can go be over any two meetings over any number of days, it doesn’t have to be the same day. On the VICBET website the Max is two but if you contact us we can do more for you. Also for Clients that make deposits using a debit or credit card, if you request a refund back to the card then you will not be charged any fees, this is done in the Banking Area. Some banks charge Cash Advance Fees but with a refund done by us the Cash Advance Fee will be reversed……


Up on the VICBET website there are 20+ Feature Races to choose from. Lots of interest in the upcoming Australian Guineas on the 29th Feb. This week the VSpecial is you can have $3.50 either Fav – Alligator Blood or Catalyst. They are currently both about $3……Limit is $1k wager per Client till Noon on Saturday the 22nd Feb….


Have a Fixed Odds bet on all three Group One’s at Caulfield this Saturday, these include the Blue Diamond, the Oakleigh Plate and the Futurity and we will then give you a free bet on any race on the day up to or equal to the smallest of the three wagers. Let’s say you have $75, $80 & $125 as your three wagers then you get a FREE $75 wager on any race on the day. Simply text or Whatsapp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) or email and the Free Bonus Bet will be added. Max is $200 and one bonus per Client…..


The Group One Blue Diamond was first run in 1971 and was won by the 5/4 ($2.25) Favourite Tolerance by a short half head and was trained by the Legendary trainer of 2 yo’s Angus Armanasco. I checked some old newspaper articles from The Age from 1971 and found Tolerance was backed in from 2/1 ($3) to 5/4 ($2.25) and the early Favourite Lemon Twist blew out from 7/4 ($2.80) all the way out to 3/1 ($4). Lemon Twist ran accordingly and was 13th in a field of 16. History does not change, you need to follow the money particularly in two year old races. The race has always been run over 1,200 metres and Trainer David Hayes has the most wins with five and Dwayne Dunn has the most wins with four for a Jockey……
