Betfair Horse Racing Competition this Saturday

August 2nd 2019, 12:20pm, By: admin

Horse racing returns to Moonee Valley for the first time in months this Saturday, ahead of what is set to be a huge Spring Carnival! To celebrate the return of the Valley, Before You Bet are teaming up with the folks at Betfair Australia to run a free competition for the punters!

All you have to do is pick the winner of Race 8 at Moonee Valley this Saturday (August 3) and you will go into the draw to win a Betfair merchandise pack!

To enter all you have to do is follow us on our social media channels – FacebookTwitter or Instagram and post your selection in the competition thread! The competition threads will be pinned to the top of the respective socials, so don't worry about scrolling down to find them! 



If you don’t have a Betfair account then click here to open one today!


Once the race has been run and won and correct weight has been declared, all of those who select the correct winner of the race will go into the random draw to win our prize of the week. So you could go with one of the favourites for the race and have less chance in the random draw against lots of winners, or choose one of the roughies and have less correct entries to go up against in the draw if it wins. The choice is yours!

We’re also going to allow you to enter up to a maximum three times – once for each social media platform. You can choose to post the same horse on each, and if you’re right, you’ll get three entries in the draw. Or you have the option to spread your wings and cover multiple horses to give you a greater chance of entering the draw! So post your choice on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to take advantage of the maximum three entries.

This week, our competition winner will receive an awesome Betfair merchandise pack! You'll receive TWO Betfair caps, TWO pairs of Betfair socks and a couple of Betfair stress balls to go with them! Get one of your mates to enter the comp and sort out a deal to split the prize pack if one of you wins! Or maybe you'll give one to the wife to keep her onside while you have a flutter on Saturday afternoons.

Entries will close when the starter releases the horses from the gates for Race 8 at the Valley, which is set to jump at 4.25pm AEST on Saturday, August 3rd.

Step 1: Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Step2: Make sure you have a Betfair account

Step 3: Choose your selection for Race 8 at Moonee Valley and post on social media

That’s it! Good luck and stay tuned to more exclusive competitions in the coming weeks!
