How to place a bet?

Victoria Derby 2018 - how to place bets

There are several ways you can place a bet at Flemington either with a bookmaker or through TAB on course and online (Tabaret and ‘The Tote’).

Bookmakers can be found in a variety of locations on course. You  can check the racebook for their locations, names and stand numbers.

If you bet with a bookie then you win if your horse finishes first. When you back a horse for a Place, you win if your horse finishes first, second or third. There is no collect for third place if there are less than eight runners (except late scratchings). If there is less than three runners, there is no place betting.

When you back a horse Each Way, you collect if your horse wins or runs a place. For Each Way betting bookmakers pay 1/4 of the win odds for a place if there are eight or more runners and 1/3 of the win odds if there are between three and seven runners. There is no collect for third place if there are less than eight runners (except late scratchings) where deductions could apply. If there is fewer than three runners, there is no place.

Bookmakers also offer Win/Place betting which is displayed similarly to TAB approximate dividends for each runner in a race. Win/Place betting is the fixed odds displayed on the bookmaker’s board, for example $3 Win, $1.60 Place, therefore a bet of $10 Win and $10 Place would return $46 if the horse won the race or $16 if the horse finished second or third in a race of eight or more starters. The Each Way rules do not apply to bookmakers betting Win/Place.

  • When you back a horse Concession, you win if your horse finishes first, and the amount you bet is returned in full if your horse finishes second or third. However, there is no collect for third place if there are less than eight runners (except late scratchings). Concession betting requires a field of at least three runners.
  • To win a Four Place bet, you select a horse in four separate races to run a place.
  •  To win a Multiple Doubles bet, you select two horses and multiply the odds on offer, and both horses must win.

Don’t forget to carefully check your tickets before leaving the bookmaker’s stand and do not discard tickets until correct weight has been declared.

In the event of a late scratching/s your ticket may be subject to deductions ordered by the Stewards.

If you bet with the TAB at the track your wins are determined in the following way:

The race is a gruelling test of stamina for three-year-olds, and is essentially a ‘survival of the fittest’ as many of the runners fail to see out the journey and plod to the finishing line. Generally, the more seasoned horses, those that have had more racing than others, are better equipped to handle the testing conditions of Derby Day.
