Another Sporadic Horse Racing Software Blog Update

March 26, 2010

So much work, so little time and all this social media stuff can really take up a lot of it. We prefer to spend it with our members so p[lease excuse me for the lack of frequent updates to blogs, Twitter, Facebook, smoke signals, carrier pigeons etc etc – LOL!   

Everything has been going really well in BT land. I haven’t posted to this wall since October 2009! OOPS! Well, what has there been…? Ok, Spring Carnival. OMG… what a time for us. The only time that is more profitable or on par with it is the Autumn Carnival which is upon us now of course. To be honest, I actually think it is more profitable overall.  

The Spring Carnival revolves around one big week and in preparation leading up to that week or two before, the money can be just a bit harder to sort out. Melbourne Cup Day saw a MASSIVE profit on auto of just under $2k. One member in Perth pulled the pin a few races before the Melb’ Cup to finish with just over 2k – fully automated. The race just before was a loss which stopped us out with around $1800. Not a bad days work but for those using key indicators to identify standouts, it was just unbelievable. Some made well over 2k, some over 3k and much more but everyone did very well indeed.  

Coolmore Iris Neilsen Day @ Ballina


We have sponsoring more race meetings and become much more involved with our local jockey clubs. In particular, the Ballina Jockey Club and the Clarence River Jockey Club. It’s flattering to say the least, to have passed the ‘acid test’ if you like and be accepted as one of the few above board companies in this industry with a more than viable product to have our name associated with them.  

The amount of educated punters, traders and racing folk in our member base is growing substantially now that they can see that its not the piano as such that matters but how we play it that sets us apart. A well known local bookie for instance is having great fun and showing fantastic results. I must say that as a baby in terms of fundamental racing knowledge ie form, trainers, breeders etc, I feel extremely humbled to be teaching someone who has been in the game for the better part of his life and a bookie for 35yrs or more.  

We put on the Bettortrader Boxing Day Cup which was a treat and having a marque on course for the Coolmore Iris Neilsen Day was more so. Seeing Takeover Target in the flesh and getting to chat with the lovely and most humble Joe Janiak was an honour.   

Auto trading has bitten the dust this year and fortunately, there aren’t that many who rely on it full time. There are many reasons for it no doubt and I wont get into to the lengthy details here but the hot Summer, unusual conditions etc are a part of it all. It is definitely turning back around though which is great and for those adjusting their settings to suit have still done quite well. Its those looking for the Holy Grail ‘set once and leave it forever’ setting that haven’t had a good year on auto.  

In saying that, the standouts have been huge and often at very big odds (its how we play our piano, remember?). Taking last Saturday for example, in Brisbane we backed Growsir, Citywyse and Bavagna to name a few. In Sydney there was Night of the Generals, Masquerader, Alverta, Gold Water and Descardo. In Melbourne Melbourne there was Domesky, Elumino, Fanjura, Electromotive and Morgan Dollar. These are just to name a few for those in the know. All were fantastic value and all taken each way at a 1/5 ratio for the stake. Have a look at the screen shots here and you will see the transaction report from the Bettortrader software and also my actual TAB account for the day. This is only one page but you will get the point no doubt.  


This type of day and the proven live results speak for themselves. Why on Earth anyone would want to spend 10k on a software when they can get results like this for far less with 10 times the support and training is beyond me. It’s a pure case of many thinking that the more they spend, the more they get. In this case, it seems that adage does not ring true.  


The above report shows all transactions made that day on standout selections only. Auto only made $189 after hitting the trailing stop loss. Members manual trading results varied from a few hundred to several thousand depending of course on bet sizes which comes back to bank size and levels of experience which will determine overall confidence to pull the trigger with larger size investments. 


Our office is flying along in Ballina. Why Ballina? Why not? Have you ever been here? Surrounded by water, lots of fishing, low violence, nice schools, plenty of greenery, a skip and a jump to the Gold Coast (if you would ever need or want to which we don’t), lovely friendly people and a real community. What else could one ask for. Growing up in Sydney, I moved to the Northern Rivers in 2000 and I could never go back to the rat race. 


The latest and greatest thing for us has been the addition of regular webinars. I can’t express enough about what this has done for many of our members. Being able to watch, learn and earn all at the same time has now become our biggest point of difference and further shows the transparency of our business and the lengths we go to in order to realize the utmost client satisfaction. You can visit Youtube to see some examples by clicking here.   

Anyway folks, just a wee catch up – insert tongue in cheek here. I trust everyone is having a good year. I’ll try to keep more up to date with things and if anyone has any questions, we are only a phone call away – or if you’re in the area, you can drop in for a cuppa’ (I must remember to get milk). Cheers!

BettorTrader Scam Reports

October 13, 2008

We recognise that there have been many horse racing software scams.

We ARE different. We are passionate about the industry and are here to stay.

We have had a gut full of our competitors and other spiteful individuals involved with or working for them. We are now offering an $5000 cash reward for information leading to the identity of the company or individuals making posts designed to damage the reputation of BettorTrader.

We are being Harassed.

We constantly receive fake emails and often find we have been talking to and then demonstrating our software to one of our competitors. Why? They quite simply want what we have. We had threats from one company and one of the sales people working for them which was taken to police and a formal complaint lodged, with that company being contacted by them.


Companies selling over-priced, under-performing software on the Gold Coast hate us. Why? Because we don’t lie, we turn people away from the whole industry that we feel it would be a detriment to and that means at times that no one gets the business. 90% of people who have come to us are talking to one of these other companies. We charge under half of most of them and offer 10 times more. This in itself should make things fairly obvious to those who have read the posts in question.

We need your help.

We know someone knows something and we are calling on your good natures and common decency to help get to the bottom of it. We know it is a competitor. The posts are stuffed with keywords to rank highly with Google Adwords. If it means you may lose your job, we will have one for you and you wont be forced to lie either. We don’t have to. Bettortrader is the best there is by far.

Basically we are being “blackmailed”

We receive emails from the sites asking us for money to either remove the posts of add an ‘ok’ to them indicating they have researched us and we come up squeaky clean.

If you don’t believe us call the Department of Fair Trading

If anyone wants to find out if we have any complaints, call the Department Of Fair Trading or the ACCC. 

If you are responsible…

As for those making the posts, please continue. The more you do, the better chance we have of finding you. I know it must be tough competing in this market with a $10,000 plus get rich quick scam against the likes of Bettortrader but if you can’t do so ethically (if you know what that word means) then perhaps you should do something else.

Our Guarantee

Bettortrader has an unconditional 30day money back guarantee and 14day cool off period.

Dispute Resolution

Our internal dispute resolution procedure is robust and the agreements are in plain English with no hidden clauses or conditions. Each member is entitled to have their case heard and in the event would arise that would an issue remains unresolved – which will be never –

External Dispute Resolution

Every consumer in the country is protected by various governing laws and departments enforcing them such as the DFT, ACCC and ASIC.

Do you have a dispute with BettorTrader or any other company?

If someone had a genuine complaint, this would be the first port of call. That is Call Department of Fair Trading in your state.

Real Customers who have complaints DO NOT

They would not most cleverly stuff their posts with keywords for the sole purpose of ranking highly in Google.

They would have gone through the above channels and gotten a refund.

Yes, this is a very niche market and the competition is fierce but surely one does not have to stoop as low as it appears these people have.

I look forward to hearing from people with the relevant information.

Time to regulate?

BTW – We firmly believe it way past time to bring the government into this and seek regulation or even legislation.

We welcome it.

The only people who will suffer will be those who can not comply. Feel free to leave comments.
