WINTER racing is certainly a thing of the past this season as punters gear up for another great spring racing Saturday.
We have feature group one racing from both Flemington and Randwick, with Winx stepping out Flemington for the first time in the Turnbull Stakes.
The quality three-year-old types run for the big prize at Randwick in the Spring Champion Stakes and all the undercard races at both meetings are full of class thoroughbreds and good betting opportunities.
Cashing in on the bookmakers’ bonus deals this Saturday is a key to making profit so we have listed the very best deals from our recommended bookmakers.
Neds horse racing bonus deals
As if the $500 sign up bonus offer wasn’t good enough, new bookmaker Neds.com.au is giving its customers two quality promotions this Saturday.
You don’t often see bookmakers giving away bonus bets for nothing, but Neds’ Flemington special this Saturday means punters can bet on a race and the result doesn’t matter.
Back a runner in the first race at Flemington and if it doesn’t win, you get your stake back (up to $20). That’s a free $20 bet if your horse loses and you can reinvest that $20 later in the day if you wish.
Neds is also running another special on the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick and it’s unlike any other bookmaker promotion available in Australasia.
Back any horse to win the Spring Champion Stakes and you will get your stake matched (up to $50) with a bonus place bet.
What’s a bonus place bet? It’s a free fixed odds place bet on your selected runner, which means if your horse wins, you will get your original bet plus the bonus money from the place bet.
Running second or third is also covered with your bonus bet, so finishing in the top three comes with plenty of reward.
Be sure to sign up to Neds.com.au for more specials like these in the coming weeks.
Ladbrokes enhanced odds and Winx special
We love the enhanced odds offers from Ladbrokes and it’s a bit like waiting for Christmas morning.
This week the team at Ladbrokes have chosen the Friday night meeting at Moonee Valley for the enhanced odds special which is being offered for the 55 Second Challenge.
The slick sprinters are out in force and the popular Miss Vista will surely attract plenty of attention with punters, but why take the lower odds on offer with other bookies when Ladbrokes has enhanced odds?
Competing bookmakers have the current favourite Miss Vista at $3.50, but bet on the unique mare with Ladbrokes to receive odds of $4.20.
That’s an incredible increase in odds and we’ll certainly be snapping up the value odds when they’re on offer.
We spoke about the free $20 on offer from Neds earlier in this post, but Ladbrokes is essentially offering their own version.
Back Winx in the Turnbull Stakes this Saturday and if the champion mare wins by a head or more, Ladbrokes will pay out odds of $2 (max bet $20). The max bet might be only $20, but that’s likely to be $20 you didn’t have before.
We can’t see Winx getting pushed that close as there’s only one realistic rival in Humidor.
CrownBet bonus bet offer
Punters can get off to a great start this weekend with CrownBet’s horse racing specials.
The first runs on Friday at Moonee Valley where punters can win a share of $40,000 worth of rewards points over the first four races.
Simply place a fixed odds bet on races 1-4 at Moonee Valley and if your horse finishes second, you’ll share in $10,000 worth of CrownBet rewards points in each race.
The less punters that back your runner, the more you’ll earn – so look for the outsiders for maximum rewards.
In conjunction with CrownBet’s new bet boost promotion, punters can now use their rewards points to get better odds for their runners, so get stuck into the rewards points promotions while this offer lasts.
CrownBet is also giving away a bonus bet offer for the first five races at Flemington and Randwick this Saturday.
If your horse runs second or third in the first five races at either venue, you’ll get your stake back in rewards points (up to $50).
Unibet spring carnival specials
Unibet.com.au has two offers for every single group race this spring carnival.
That’s over 110 races in total, so if you’re planning on betting the big races this spring, head over to Unibet for some great deals.
It is giving punters up to $50 in bonus bets if your runner finishes second or third in any group race throughout the spring.
Unibet is also giving punters the best tote odds for all exotic bets placed on group races throughout the spring. This means punters will get great odds on quinella, trifecta and first four bets.
