The Grand Finals of Australian Racing
The Championships was inaugurated in 2014 as a “Grand Finals” concept to feature and showcase the very best of Australian racing as the jewel in the crown of Sydney’s Autumn Carnival.
 
2016 will witness the third year of this exciting initiative, launched by Racing NSW in partnership with The Australian Turf Club and supported by the Government of NSW.
 
Held on the first and second Saturday of April each year, The Championships twelve races will be hotly contested to determine champion status over different age groups and distances. Glittering emerald encrusted trophies, designed by acclaimed Sydney jeweller Cerrone are awarded to the winning owner, trainer and jockey of each race.
 
With a total of $20 million prize money on offer, the stage is set for two days of exciting and highly competitive racing. The very best horses in Australia will compete against some of the finest international contestants, at what has quickly become a feature occasion in Sydney’s social and sporting calendar.

What are Free Bets, Really?

When in the market for betting online, the first thing you notice is the intense competition among key operators. To set themselves apart, a great number of bookmakers present free bets and other extremely generous bonus offers to new customers. However, to take advantage of a free bet, a punter has to first place a bet with their own cash. This bet is known as the “qualifying bet”. For instance, as you register with a betting agent and wager $50 as a qualifying bet, the agent will proceed to offer you an additional $50 for wagering, absolutely free.

Personally I prefer the deposit match bonus, but I think you if you are a regular punter you should have an account with all of the major online bookmakers, that way you can take advantage of the offers that they present.

Quite often when I haven't used an account for a while, they will contact me and offer a deposit match, which has to be turned over like a normal deposit, but hey if you can get an edge in punting, take it.
