Racenet Review

Racenet.com.au Introduction

Racenet.com.au is one of Australia’s longest running horse racing news, tipping and form guide websites and it was sold to Punters.com in November, 2018, in a deal valued at $17 million.

The deal was reviewed by the ACCC but it was deemed that there are numerous alternative sources of online racing news and information for consumers other than Punters and Racenet.

Both Punters and Racenet now fall under Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp banner.

Racenet Website Design

The Racenet website has recently undergone a full revamp but the overall layout remains familiar for experienced users and provides easy navigation for new users.

The Racenet site navigation is down the left-hand side of the screen and lists important sections that you can navigate to from anywhere on the site.

At GoBet, we frequently use the Racenet website when reviewing form for upcoming races, keeping up with the latest horse racing news, reiewing expert racing tips, and utilising their in-depth Blackbook features to keep track of all our favourite horses.

Racenet Form Guide

The Racenet form guide is as in-depth as it gets and beginners and serious punters alike are able to analyse all aspects of upcoming races.

Racenet’s form guide is easy to navigate with upcoming days appearing at the top and the race tracks and races listed below. Australian tracks are listed above international races. From there, you can browse more details for each race and each racehorse – whatever deatils you are looking to analyse for upcoming races, you will find it in Racenet’s racing form guide section.

Racenet Blackbook

One of our most used features of the Racenet website is the Blackbook feature. 

Every punter knows the value of a well-kept blackbook, and Racenet’s Blackbook has everything you need to keep track of horses, trainers, jockeys, sires and dams. You’ll be able to keep detailed notes on all areas of racing, and in our opinion, the only bookmaker that comes close with their Blackbook feature is Sportsbet.
