Australia’s biggest races

In Australia we’re blessed with a very busy calendar of racing at the highest level. Australia’s biggest races include a smorgasbord of Group 1 racing throughout the year, plus a number of new ‘pop-up’ feature races that have changed the complexion of the sport in this country.

Australia’s biggest races include some of our oldest and best-known Group 1 contests such as the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Doncaster Handicap, to new pop-up races like The Everest, the Golden Eagle and the All-Star Mile, which boast enormous prizemoney.

The Betting Academy

Aussies love a bet. Many of us are introduced to betting at a young age, maybe getting a couple of dollars from mum or dad for a flutter on the Melbourne Cup.

For adults in Australia, betting is everywhere. It’s never been quicker or easier: just reach for your phone, and you have endless racing and sports betting options right there, from bookmakers all desperate for your dollars.

But we think there’s something missing.

Many of us spend a lot of time and money on the punt, over years and decades.

Yet there really is nothing in place that actually teaches people how betting really works. How betting markets are framed, how form study really works, and how profitable punters actually manage to make money (first hint: it’s not through good luck).

Even in racing, an industry which survives on punters spending their money, there’s precious little available to help them out: to help them understand how it all works and what they need to do if they don’t wish to simply bleed cash.

So it’s time for some proper betting education, where you can learn to bet instead of simply learning to lose. It’s The Betting Academy.
