Moonga Stakes Betting

The Moonga Stakes does not draw as many punters as the Caulfield Cup on the same day, but many smart bettors still wager on it. Most of their money still goes on the Caulfield Cup, or on Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup doubles, but some money is also spread over smaller races like the Moonga Stakes.

Putting some money on the Moonga Stakes and other small races is a sensible way to balance out the risk of a big Caulfield Cup bet. While it makes for a great story to win big on the Caulfield Cup, you take a big risk by putting all of your bankroll on one race. Your wallet will appreciate it much more if you spread your bets out. The maximum you can earn may be less, but your chances of a big loss decrease dramatically.

If you are going to bet on the Moonga Stakes, be sure to consider online betting sites like Ladbrokes.com.au and bookmaker.com.au. These sites tend to offer the best odds and you can place a bet with them without having to leave the house.
