Knowing which race courses will offer bookmaker odds and which won't is important if you're wanting to make an investment.

Unless something has seriously gone wrong the major metropolitan tracks like Rosehill, Caulfield and Morphettville will always offer bookmaker odds, it's the smaller tracks from around Australia and New Zealand that won't routinely offer markets.
