Australian thoroughbred racing is the most popular market on the Betfair Exchange. Please enjoy the following strategies so that you can sharpen your skill set and find an edge on the market.


Betfair is a low margin exchange, just like Airbnb. We create markets for punters to take on punters. And we want winners.



Another great resource is Betfair’s Customer Insights section. A racing journalist sits down with successful Betfair clients and talks about how they became a pro punter. You’ll often pick up specific strategies that apply to your betting.

For example, if you love going to the track with your laptop then read about Mark, The Punter. If you’re a tech wizard and considering an automated racing strategy, read up about David and his API Bot. Or you may love to trade in-play.

The beauty of the Betfair Exchange is there’s more than one way to skin a cat.
