Black Caviar brings out the crowds, the TV viewers from around the world and most importantly, the bookies and exchanges best promotions. There is no excuse for any smart punter to have a losing day on Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Day with the abundance of specials on offer. Below we have shared the best promotions available and how they can benefit you.
Betfair offers the best odds week in week out the majority of racing events so there is no reason for anyone not to have an account. If you don’t have an account, click the banner to your right to set up an account and receive a first deposit bonus up to $200 (Vic & SA residents excluded).
Each week, Betfair will be updating their Promotions page with the latest offerings for racing, sports and events around Australia and this week they have three offerings for you to try.
Promotion One – Lightning Strikes Thrice
To celebrate Black Caviar’s return to the track, Betfair will credit your account with a bonus $100 if you back 3 winners via their Tote Extra product on Lightning Stakes Day. The minimum bet for each of the winners is $25. The race with Black Caviar is obviously included so really, you only need to back two other winners the whole day to come out well infront!
Promotion Two – Flemington Quaddie First Leg Refund
Legs one, three and four of the Fleming Quaddie have 12, 16 and 14 runners with leg two the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes, so you can expect a roughie or two to get up at a good price, making for a nice paying Quaddie. If the first leg of your Quaddie loses and the final three legs win, Betfair will refund 100% of your stake up to $50.
I will be approaching this in my write-up with a shortish first leg, Black Caviar one out in the second and by going wide in the third and fourth hoping for some value.
Promotion Three – Half a Length Cash Back Special
If your horse loses by less than half a length on major Saturday meetings throughout Autumn, 100% of your Betfair Tote Extra bet will be funded, up to a maximum of $50.
This promotion would have come in handy with three of our last four bets on The New Boy resulting in a half length or less loss! He is racing tomorrow in the last and this may be a very good product to bet with for horses like him.
It is important to note that this promotion is running at the same time as the Lightning Strikes Thrice promotion.. so you may back five horses Saturday for three winners (for the $100 bonus) and two refunds!
Promotion – Light Fingers Stakes Offer
Race 6 at Rosehill on Saturday is the Light Fingers Stakes over 1200m with a number of superstars going around. Bennetta comes into the race a $3.80 favourite with Dear Demi, Brave Soul, Longport and Driefontein all under the $10 quote knocking on the door for the win. Sportsbet are refunding 100% your first bet of up to $100 if your horse runs 2nd to Bennetta. There is one horse in this race we have been waiting to resume in Brave Soul who will get a mention in our write-up and will be getting our support with this offer.
For those who like to back these specials and then lay them off on Betfair, there is a few dollars to be made by backing the 2nd favourite on Sportsbet and laying on Betfair , hoping for the refund.
Promotion – Butter up with Black Caviar
Take a 3-leg racing multi that includes Black Caviar in the Lightning and if your treble is successful, Sportingbet will credit you a 20% bonus on your winnings!
Operated by TabCorp, Luxbet is offering one of the best sign-up bonuses of up to $500. For the weekend, Luxbet is offering double fixed odds on Black Caviar to win her own race the Lightning Stakes. Yes, this isn’t the most enticing bet you will ever see, and it certainly won’t make you rich, but $1.12 is value for the undefeated superstar.
The real promotion that you are joining Luxbet for is the Group 1 Bonus promotion which will be offered all Autumn for horses $1.50 and above (Black Caviar won’t be high enough to win this promotion.
If you back the winning horse in selected Group 1 Races with Luxbet, they will match your stake with a Bonus Bet of up to $100. There are 28 races available for the promotion OUTSIDE of the Lightning Stakes today so if 30% of favourites win (this is a rough number, but close to the % that occurs), we can expect to see 8 winners from the promotion resultings in $800 in freebets. The way we leverage these bets is by backing the horse on Luxbet for the $100 stake (the favourite at a short price) and laying them on Betfair. The idea is that we may lose around $5-$10 each bet, but we are gaining $100 worth of freebets for each win that occurs. You can then decide if you want to hedge out the bet with Betfair or plonk it on your best of the day.
