Today a new month of racing kicks off with four TAB meetings set to take place around Australia for the first day of February, 2011.
City and country tracks in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT are scheduled for Tuesday February 1, providing plenty of variety and exciting online betting markets at Luxbet.
Keep an eye on the Mackay meeting, however, with a cyclone threatening the abandonment of racing in far north Queensland.
For the best horse racing odds today, on this weekend’s stakes features and all the approaching autumn showdowns, we highly recommend the Tabcorp-owned bookmaker Luxbet.
