Pete Brinky’s first interest in horse racing was inspired through his father, who had an interest in a Horse Stud Farm and was a keen punter. Pete’s first memory of backing a winner was when he was on a high school study vacation in Year 12. It was Melbourne Spring Carnival fever and he had a good collect (for a school kid!) on the Melbourne cup winner Gurners Lane. His passion for Melbourne racing may have in fact been grounded that very day but he always attributes it to his father’s influence. By concentrating on form and videos in one state alone over many years has allowed Pete to develop an expertise in Melbourne racing and achieve an enviable successful strike rate of backing Melbourne winners. With over 30 years experience focused entirely on Melbourne racing, he has built the knowledge, expertise and results that any punter should want to include in their weekly analysis.
In his mid-twenties, Pete became a thoroughbred owner himself and started to move in the “right circles” to get an even better knowledge of the industry. He not only mingled and had close friendships with successful trainers and jockeys but was also very involved with some key professional punters that helped shape his betting tactics and strategies. He admits he met some very colourful characters over the years but these guys knew horses. They grew up living and breathing horses and everything to do with racing them. These were people with an innate understanding of horses, track conditions, weights, jockeys…all the key elements to horse racing. He still moves in these influential horse racing circles to ensure he gains everything you need to know in the market each and every week to make the right pricing and tipping decisions.
He has always been focused on getting value for money and getting the better of the bookies and betting agencies. This is quite often done by shopping around for early overs, not only for Saturday meetings but also for major Spring races. Pete’s motto is VALUE- NEVER BACK A HORSE THAT IS SHORTER IN BETTING THAN YOU THINK IT SHOULD BE!
The pre planning process in his DNA includes the study of weights, jockeys, trainers, barriers, strike rates and track conditions, to come up with a formula that will provide winner after winner!
