What is a blackbook?


Blackbook

A blackbook in horse racing terms is the process of marking down horses you think are worthy of following going forward. Whether it's a last-start winner that smashed the field on debut or horse that flashed home late to finish fourth in an eye-catching display, following gallopers as they progress through their campaigns helps you line your pockets with cash.

These days punters don't have to go to the effort of writing their selections down in a little black book. Online bookmakers offer blackbook services and our website give you plenty of horses to fill it up. 

Why use a blackbook?


Racing is without question Australia's most busiest sports. We're talking over 20,000 races per year, contested by well over 40,000 horses. Then you throw in all the trainers from the notable names right down to the hobby trainers and you start to understand why it's impossible to be completely across everything in the thoroughbred world. 

Everyone has their favourite horse, the one that catches the eye or even one from a stable you respect, but with so many races going on its hard to know when that horse is jumping next until you've seen that it has saluted and you missed out. 

That's why a blackbook is important. Simply add the horse you want to follow going forward and your blackbook service will notify you when it is next racing. It's that simple.


How can I create my own Blackbook?


Online bookmakers like Sportsbet allow punters to mark down a particular horse that they thought caught the eye. Then Sportsbet will notify you when that horse is next nominated for an event and will alert you to when they're lining up in a race.
