Thursday Horse Racing – January 13th

Today, Thursday January 13th, there are four quality TAB race meetings scheduled to take place in Australia today with racing in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia.

The high levels of rainfall right across Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales have had a number of affects on the Australian racing schedule including today’s Ballarat meeting being transferred to the Geelong Synthetic course due to the state of the track in Ballarat following 80mm of rain falling in the last 24 hours.

One thing that the flooding and rain hasn’t affected is the great odds and superior range of betting options and bonuses punters will find online at Luxbet!

A Tabcorp owned and trusted bookmaker, Luxbet are also offering a massive free bet bonus to all their new customers that join and quote the exclusive promo code BONUSBET.
