A Father asked his 10 year old Son if he knew about the birds and the bees. “I don’t want to know!” the child said, bursting into tears. “Promise me you won’t tell me.” Confused, the Father asked what was wrong “Oh Dad,” the boy sobbed, “when I was six you gave me the “there’s no Santa” speech. At seven, I received the “there’s no Easter Bunny” speech. When I was eight, you hit me with the “there’s no tooth fairy” speech. If you tell me that grown-ups don’t really have sex, I’ll have nothing left to live for.”


The biggest winning wager with us was on Saturday at Flemington:

  • Flemington R8 Surprise Baby $10k TF at $2.60  – Credit of $16k to the VICBET Client…… (Now the $9 Melbourne Cup favourite)

And the largest losing wager with us was also on Saturday but at Randwick:

  • Randwick R7 Te Akau Shark $5k Win TF at $6 – Loss of $5k to the VICBET Client……

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 Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price up for you, this can be in a group of two or three……This a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


What a great weekend of Races coming up with Group One Racing at Caulfield and Randwick where the Caulfield Guineas is the highlight along with a great list of Group two and three races. It is the time of year when all the Country Cups are rolling in, this Saturday in VIC we have the Hamilton and Manangatang Cups and on Sunday there is the Cranbourne Cup…..


Lots of questions that clients have asked us over the journey including items like the scale of deductions we use are all added in to our VICBET FAQ’s.


It is that time of year coming into the Spring with all the stars resuming, there are 15 Feature Races available now, we will match what price any of our Competitor’s are betting (except Bet365)……If there are any Feature Races not online that you are interested in let us know and we will get them online for you, they can be Australia or Overseas….This week the VSpecial is in The Melbourne Cup. After it’s massive win in the Group 3 Bart Cummings on Saturday, Surprise Baby has firmed in to $9 equal favourite with Finche for the race that stops the nation! This week anyone can simply reply (by Friday PM) to the VNEWS and you can have $11 Fixed Odds up to a stake of $500 for either of the two favourites...


This week we have a Caulfield Group 1 Promo…. If you run second to any Favourite in a Caulfield Group 1 this weekend we will give you cash back up to $100. The only catch is there must be a bet in all four Caulfield Group One’s. If you run second to any of the four Final Favs that win then you can collect up to $100 each time …..Note it is for WIN only wagers and equal to the smallest of your four wagers. If any race has final equal Favourites then that race is not counted.


The $2m Caulfield Guineas was first run at Caulfield Racecourse in 1881 when it was won by Wheatear and has always been run over 1,600 metres. Interestingly it was only during WWII that it left Caulfield for a few years as it was run at Flemington. In recent times Surround (1976) and Red Anchor (1984) have won the Caulfield Guineas/Cox Plate double. Sixteen horses have won the Caulfield Guineas/Victoria Derby double, including Tulloch (1957), Red Anchor (1984) and Mahogany (1993). Some of the notable winners include Heroic (1924), Ajax (1937), Hydrogen (1951), Tulloch (1957), Storm Queen (1966), Vain (1969), Surround (1976), Luskin Star (1977), Manikato (1978), Red Anchor (1984), Mahogany (1993), Redoute’s Choice (1999), Lonhro (2001), Weekend Hussler (2007), Starspangledbanner (2009) and last year’s winner The Autumn Sun (2018).…Click on the link to watch a few Classic Caulfield Guineas of recent times:
