Got an email from Racenet today advertising a company called "The Odds Broker"

The gist is that you can open an account with them & then get the best odds on offer (from a number of agencies) by betting with them.
Not sure how this would work as I'm guessing the bets are relayed to the agencies. ?? Seems it would be messy to do this or get agencies to agree to this.
Alternatively, they could be taking the bets but giving you the best odds?

Anyone heard of them or know how they actually operate?

https://www.theoddsbroker.com/home.htm

Surely adding the site would have helped?

Norfolk Island - yet Randwick.

Not very informative.

From fading memory a Scott Woodward (+Steve Fletcher?) initiative?

I suspect it's another consequence of kickbacks.

Woodward is/was bookiering - which may/may not be related.

Knock yourself out on this failed outfit's efforts:

What I mean is if you do go to the Website & click on an event then you see they have odds from 4 agencies, 3 I've never heard of. ???

Opened an account to take advantage of Sportingbets fixed odds, but my account number has been prevented already from taking their prices.

Just got on at top odds a few too many times for their liking it seems. Because of the anonymous nature of the business it seems they are quicker than normal to put the slasher through you

Thought Home On A Wing was in the right race on the right track today and looked a great chance to me

David Hayes' 2 at Flemington look hard to beat, Maraseem and Wookah

Bailey's 2 in Brisbane looks hard to beat Frozone and Age of Heroes

One at a bit of a price that I was going to back is Praecido in race 7 at Randwick

On another Hard day nothing looks a stand out to me but I think the above named will all give you a run for your money

I put that last post in the wrong place, it was supposed to go in the "give us your best for today" under the "Betting tips and ratings" heading, can it be moved?? Sorry 'bout that
