Australian Horse Racing Tips, News and Predictions

Horse racing in Australia is big business and with racing carnivals spread throughout the year, there's never a lack of high-quality racing for punters.

With racing available to bet on every day of the year except Christmas Day, punters are spoilt for choice and we have coverage of all the major racing carnivals, including the Melbourne Cup Carnival in November.

Bettors from all around the world can bet on Australian racing and due to its high popularity, it doesn't matter where you live, watching Australian thoroughbred racing is easy.

Punters love Melbourne Cup Week as it not only features the Melbourne Cup, but also seven other Group 1 races across one week of racing.

It starts out on Saturday with the four Group 1 races, including the Victoria Derby, and continues throughout the week with the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, Victoria Oaks on Thursday and the Emirates Stakes and Darley Classic on the following Saturday.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival is not to be missed and the action at Flemington is unlike any other carnival in Australia.

There are many great races during the Melbourne Spring Carnival as it gears towards the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate are two of the world's biggest thoroughbred horse races and the 11 total Group 1 races makes for an exciting and profitable carnival for punters.

Group 1 races are run at Flemington, Caulfield and Moonee Valley, with the latter featuring two night racing Group 1 races.

The Championships hasn't been around for very long but it features some of the biggest races in Sydney.

Held over consecutive Saturdays in April, The Championships shows off the best thoroughbreds in Australia and even some from around the world. There are eight Group 1 races in total at Randwick, including the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Australian Derby.

The Sydney Autumn Carnival takes place in March before The Championships and it acts as a lead-up series. There is a total of 12 Group 1 races held at both Randwick and Rosehill, including the world's richest two-year-old race, the Golden Slipper.
