Australian Horse Racing
We all want to be competitive in everything we do. And no more so that with punting on horse racing.
Success in punting on horses, in fact most things reduces down to an information war - the people with the best information make the smart moves.
Books have been and still are the best source of general information, and this applies at least as much in the art of racehorse selection and staking as in any other field.
Author Paul Segar has produced textbooks which cover all aspects of punting. The books alone stand as a complete reference but also provide 'food for thought'. You can develop / improve your own ideas as well as learn some new techniques.
Each book is written in plain English with plenty of practical examples in each chapter. Browse the contents of each book or email for further information, if required.

The Melbourne Cup
The Melbourne Cup. The ultimate staying event.
Each year, the best stayers from around the world gather in Melbourne to fight out the handicapping championship of the world. The battleground - the hallowed headquarters at Flemington . The players - tough, courageous, strong. The distance - the grueling 2 miles run under Australian racing conditions - never an inch given and none expected with often the pace on from start to finish. The maximum field of 24 riders and runners literally stop the nation as they thunder down the straight the first time with everyone glued to a radio or television screen wherever they may be. The last 300m of the race is perhaps the most famous part of any Australian race and is replayed time and time again.
The Melbourne Cup is the time honoured event in Australian horse racing. It's history spans most of this mighty nations past and is a backbone event on the annual sporting calendar. Like many Cup events around the country, the same horses often contest the event in multiple years with their first attempt usually being the most successful.
