yeah, that'll work...

Racing NSW and the antiquated blokes in pork pie hats who think they run the show have introduced some great 'new' ideas into NSW racing.

Internet Betting Approved for NSW bookmakers

Racing NSW bowed to mounting pressure from the local bookmaking ranks by finally approving their long standing appllication to take bets via the internet on NSW racecourses or from an approved bookmaking office.

Too little, too late say the bagmen as other states still have a massive advantage over them with the range of markets they can offer.

And the best of all...


Racing NSW has also agreed to allow punters to bring laptop computers onto NSW racecourses subject to similar terms and conditions imposed on bookmakers.

These conditions, which must be agreed to by the racecourse and auditorium patrons, include the pre-requisite that such computers are dedicated units and must have Racing NSW monitoring software installed.

Punters may access only approved websites and only after making application to Racing NSW for approval to carry a laptop computer on course.

Approved laptops will be subject to an annual monitoring fee.


Who on earth is going to comply with such draconian and pointless regulations? And what's the difference between a laptop and an Iphone or Android phone these days anyway? Very little.

  4. So Racing NSW are now going to turn away professional punters from attending racetracks.

    Firstly they get rid of the high turnover bookies and now the high turnover punters.

    Are these clowns intent on inventing ways of how NOT to run a business.?

    How does V'Landys keep his job ?

Preview de la Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe 2020

The European flat racing season comes to its natural conclusion in this messed up hell of a year. The queen of the turf, Enable, goes for an historic third win but it has been wet and cold all week in Paris, making it a tough old slog in deep ground. There won't be much of a crowd there to 'bring the house down' if she wins, in front of no more than 1000 paying spectators, but the racing world will be tuning in across the globe. =============================================== Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe   ParisLongchamp, 1605 local, 1505 BST, 0005 Monday Sydney time.  2400m, Group 1 Weight-for-Age, (no geldings)  Approx €3m.  Expected Going - Heavy.  1.Persian King - 4yo, Kingman/Pretty Please - Andre Fabre - Pierre Charles Boudot   Star French colt stepping up to a mile and a half for the first time.

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...
