We are a team of sports and racing punters specialising in various betting strategies such as the Quaddie and Exacta, Trifecta and First Four. The tools that we use, such as our unique Quaddie Picker and Exotics Picker, are free for our subscribers to use. Subscribers can find the Quaddie Picker and Exotics Picker links from the race map pages and they include selections for the four designated Quadrella races, and combinations for the Exacta, Trifecta and First Four for each race.
On each race map subscribers will find a visual speedmap with front runners, on pacers, mid fielders, get back runners, and pace comments, plus & minus factors, and odds fluctuations. In terms of the Quaddie Picker and Exotics Picker, punters can use our quaddie selections and exotics combinations "as is", or customise the selections and/or adjust their outlay. Go to our race maps to have a look.
We follow 'big bets' placed on Australian thoroughbred racing. All of this data is collected privately and anonymously from the bookies providing great insight to the daily betting trends in table and graphical format. If you wish to 'follow the money' and emulate the big punters, this is the data to check out. Naturally one can't monitor the big bets 24/7, which is why we created an email alerts system. Subscribers receive an email every time a certain betting pattern occurs giving them an opportunity to place the same bet(s). You'll be surprised at the success rate! See the recent big bets now.
We are expanding our products and service - stay tuned!

Henry Ruuskanen - Admin
Henry has worked in the online affiliate industry since 1997. First working in affiliate marketing departments for a number of companies including; Trellian.com, IBSA, IASbet.com, Canbet.com, Capital Sports, Betsson Group, Mansion.com, Casino.com, and MiniVegas Group, and eChoice Mortgage Brokers. From 2008-onwards Henry has been working and earning a living as a full-time affiliate and search marketer.
Henry started the big betting concept a few years ago on a now defunct mobile betting website. Seeing the potential, bigbetting.com.au was released early in 2014 with a simple idea that it would publish one unique piece of data, namely big bets, that big punters placed on racing and sports. With this extra piece of info, Aussie punters would be able to spot betting trends and basically bet "a little bit" smarter. As bigbetting.com.au got a crowd Henry decided it was time to add new features to the website.
Roman joined bigbetting.com.au in 2014 (see profile below) allowing the website to expand to a race maps concept offering members race predictions with chances, plus/minus factors, and visual speedmaps. Henry said "I wanted to keep the website easy to use, and mobile-friendly, yet visual so that casual punters would also find the website useful. This is what I hope the race maps have achieved."
Ken joined bigbetting.com.au in 2015 (see profile below), allowing the website to expand on the race maps concept even further. With Ken's arrival the website also expanded to include a new Quaddie betting feature and most recently an Exotic betting feature that includes Exacta, Trifecta and First Four combos.
Henry said "big thanks goes to Roman's and Ken's form analysis and race mapping techniques as visitors to bigbetting.com.au not only get professional race maps, but they also have access to a unique Quaddie Picker and Exotics Picker where they can easily see the recommended quaddie selections, their outlay and dividends, and the exotic combinations with outlay and per combo costs."
Henry plans to continue to develop bigbetting.com.au and trusts that the ever-growing subscriber base will continue to find the data and expert analysis, and website features useful in their betting.
Roman Kozlovski - Form Analyst
Roman Kozlovski has been a keen form analyst for decades. Sometime in 1966 he had a small place bet on a horse called Dal Power which duly saluted and Roman collected the princely sum of $7.00 for his $1. This had him thinking "how easy is this?" After a period of time, and several monetary losses that should have been spent for lunch at school, he realized to win at punting he needed to apply himself with some serious zest.
That's when he started keeping his form guides and from there began a research journey that is still happening. In the years following he made all the classic mistakes young punters can make but on the journey he has learned which selection factors need careful attention and which can be treated with caution but not to an extreme.
The first serious horse racing book he bought was written by Rem Plante (The Australian Racegoers Guide To Backing Winners) which was followed over the decades by volumes written by Australians Paul Segar, Barry Blackmore and Don Scott as well as USA publications by Andy Beyer, Tom Ainslie and Steve Davidovitz not to mention UK books by Nick Mordin and others. His bedroom has officially been described "as a library with a bed in it"!
In 1985 he was approached by the editor of the punters magazine 'Practical Punting Monthly' to write an article and for the next fifteen years became one of their prolific contributors penning over one hundred articles about selection and betting strategies. In a series of articles for PPM Roman had the enormous pleasure of interviewing legendary bookmaker Bill Waterhouse and his son Robbie. To suggest their racing knowledge is massive would be a classic understatement and Roman still considers the experiences as a highlight of his racing career.
In recent times Roman has joined the online site bigbetting.com.au as the form analyst for Victorian metropolitan races each weekend for the quadrella legs, with a visit to Queensland during their carnival. The bigbetting.com.au service is free and contains race maps, form comments, plus and minus factors of the main chances and, of course, a selection order with likely margins.
Roman said, "I have one thing on mind; winners and value as winners alone is no guarantee of long term profits."
Ken Blake - Form Analyst
Ken's passionate interest in racing now spans more than four decades and his acquired accumulated racing wisdom over this period has enabled him to provide incisive form analysis and commentary to a number of racing sites and magazines.
Ken was a contributor for the national punting magazine PPM which he furnished 26 feature articles and was a regular columnist over a number of years and also the Perth form analyst for the now defunct Punting Ace site. He also ran the site PuntPerth which was exclusively dedicated to racing in his now home state of Western Australia, but work and family time constraints forced its closure a few years back.
His penetrating form analysis often detects form nuances and patterns largely missed by the punting masses and fellow analysts and is not afraid to challenge many form convention components or test successful models from other arenas for their viability in the racing domain.
Ken currently overviews Sydney racing for bigbetting.com.au and since the inception of the current format is in profit on his selections, a feat that not many other analysts can attest to. Ken will be providing further content as bigbetting.com.au expands its client services going forward.
Ken is the creator of Benchmark Ratings. Ken said "I believe to have made the world's first dynamic rating system with the integration of real time market movements that impact the rating order through market dynamics." Further information and acquisition of this unique product is available on this site (more info and link coming soon).
