Pendlebury Bet

Pendlebury Bet Australia

Family-owned and operated by Sydney bookmaking legend Jeff Pendlebury, Pendlebury Bet is guaranteed to give you great fixed odds on all Australian gallop, harness and greyhound races. Before signing up you should be aware that Pendlebury Bet's offering is very limited compared to corporate betting sites, there are no apps, the site is not very modern and they don't do sports betting. But, if you want great racing prices, and to support a real local operation, you can't find many better online bookies than Jeff.

Pendlebury Bet Review

Jeff Pendlebury is a longstanding NSW rails bookmaker, who has been providing punters with top service and top odds on-course since before the moon landing. While Pendlebury Bet has advanced over the years and now hosts an online platform - Jeff is still as humble as ever and works on the rails at all meetings held at Randwick, Rosehill, Warwick Farm and Canterbury.

Pendlebury Bet offers competitive fixed odds, that are only offered 20-30 minutes before scheduled jump times.

Top Fluc and Best Tote + SP are offered for those punters wishing to bet early.

Pendlebury Bet does not offer phone support, but Jeff and his daughter personally respond to all emails, so you are always chatting directly with the bookmaker, not a customer service operator. We've found them very responsive on the email support, waiting no longer than 5 minutes.

With a small team, Pendlebury Bet does go out of their way to look after their punters, by being responsive to all their punters queries, and processing withdrawals three times daily like clockwork.

Pendlebury Bet process withdrawals everyday at 10am/ 3pm/ 11pm (including weekends).

If you prefer to have some sports betting variety or you like the betting sites with all the bells and whistles (e.g. live streaming, speed maps), then Pendlebury Bet isn't for you and we recommend you having a punt with betM - but if you like top products with some old school service, you'll be at home with Pendlebury Bet.

Why we like Pendlebury Bet ✅

  • Pendlebury Bet offers high fixed odds and Starting Price Guarantee on all Aussie horses.
  • Pendlebury Bet is 100% family-owned and operated
  • Pendlebury Bet processes withdrawals 3 times daily, and instantly with Osko.

Why we don't like Pendlebury Bet ❌

  • Pendlebury Bet does not offer any sports betting.
  • Pendlebury Bet is missing racing features including live streaming and form guide.

    Jeff Pendlebury is one of the most respected bookmakers in NSW

    Should you have a punt with Jeff? We say def!

    Been in the game a long time, Jeff fell in love with the track as a young lad after heading to the greyhounds with his folks. Idolising the bookmakers, Jeff pursued his dream, saved up and got his bookmaker license, and began working as a bookie on his 24th birthday at Beaumont Park in 1968. Initially as a greyhound bookie, Jeff then began fielding at harness races, before finally adding horses to his repertoire. In 1987, after working in Sydney for 3 years, Jeff was promoted to a rails position. He has continued to field at every Sydney meeting to today, making him Sydney's longest serving rails bookmaker.

    Jeff welcomes punters from all walks of life - from on-course clientele who have bet with Jeff for decades, professional punters, and now online customers from all over Australia.

    A genuine racing lover, Jeff likes to say that he retired from working at 24, and has spent the rest of his life going to the races. Betting is big business for many domestic and international interests, but for Jeff it is all passion. He encourages people to come to the track to enjoy themselves, but has adapted to cater for the new age of online bettors.

    You'll always find great value with Pendlebury Bet, with not only top products including Starting Price Guarantee and Best Tote + SP - but, Jeff's theory is to always lay the favourite at the right price and he tries to believe that every horse he lays will lose. So you won't get cheap odds with Jeff.
