Horse Racing in Australia
Horse racing is such a huge event in Australia that some of their race events can actually put the whole nation to a stop. Attending horse race events, as well as placing wagers on them, is an Australian tradition and people have been doing this ever since horse racing reached the shores of this great nation. From 2009 to 2010, the amount of money placed with bookmakers on the races went up to A$14.3 billion, proving that most of the people in Australia take their horse races seriously.
There are even horse race events that are prioritised first before other popular sporting events such as rugby and football. In Australia, there are two kinds of thoroughbred horse racing: flat racing and horse racing over hurdles and fences. The latter kind of races are usually held in Victoria and South Australia. Back then, punting on horse races were limited to placing bets at the racecourse, but with the advent of the internet scores of online bookmakers have emerged and any punter from any place in Australia or in the world could place bets on any of the horse races in the Land Down Under.
Australia holds a lot of horse races but there are a few that are deemed to be the most important of all the races throughout the year. The most important horse race events in Australia are the Melbourne Cup, the Victoria Derby and the Crown Oaks (formerly known as VRC Oaks) race meets. These three race events command the highest attendees during race time and they often garner the highest amount of wagers among all the race events in Australia.
