Have you ever wondered which tipping websites are really making cash for punters?
Using real validated profit statistics from each tipster's best bets placed in 2017 we've aggregated the profits of the top three performers from each of Australia's most popular racing websites and can now reveal which sites are delivering punters the most cash in 2017.
To ensure the figures are statistically relevant we only included tipsters who posted 35 selections or more in 2017. As always we consider best bets for each race meeting where they are offered, otherwise all selections are taken from a tipster for a particular race meeting.
Most Profitable Tips from Australian Racing Websites
After running the numbers we can now reveal the racing websites that made the most cash for punters in the first half of 2017.
At the top of the list is racing website Racenet. The best bets from their three most profitable tipsters, Laurie Sainsbury, Clint Payne and Paul Joice, delivered punters no less than 45% profit on turnover (POT).
Sainsbury's reputation for frequently tipping a winning roughie has earned him the reputation of Racenet's 'most popular tipster ever'. In the six months to June he found nine winners from 72 best bets delivering his followers 60% POT at an average win price of $12.80. His winners included Black Tomahawk in June paying $32.30 best tote and Zourkhan in May paying $34.40.
Not far behind Laurie was senior form analyst Clint Payne with 47% POT from 85 best bets. After learning about the countless hours of research that Payne puts in each week (Defying The Odds 21 April 2017) it's no surprise to see his runs on the board in 2017.
NSW form guru Paul Joice was the other key contributor towards Racenet's impressive result. Joice found 33 winners from 140 best bets delivering punters 36% profit during the six month period.
The popular pocket betting magazine, Best Bets, currently holds second place in 2017. The top three performers at the racing mag have collectively delivered punters 28% POT from 296 best bet selections in the first half of 2017.
Sydney tipster Ken Coram is leading the way for the team after making a massive 62% POT with his winners averaging $5.53 best tote. Joel Marshall boasts 24% POT and Melbourne form analyst Brendan Tupper is close behind on 20%.
Sky Racing's tipsters are the third highest profit makers so far in 2017. Their three contributors include Tasmanian race caller Colin McNiff on 26% win profit, Mick Wallace whose on 17%, and racing analyst Lizzie Jelfs with 14% POT.
