There is magic in the air!


Spring is a magical time of year. With the Melbourne Cup almost upon us, the growing excitement is almost palpable.

For us ladies, there is much for to do and much to get ready: the perfect outfit; perfect hat or fascinator; stunning shoes (that you can walk in all day); hair styling; makeup; a clutch – and everything that needs to squeeze in it! The good news is that, this year, you can rejoice about extra space in your bag. No need to try and squeeze a racebook in to that valuable handbag real estate.  Simply charge up your phone and make sure to download the Best Fairy Flutter app.


Let us introduce Betty.  She’s the face of Best Fairy Flutter and your new BFF (Best Fairy Friend) at the track. Her job is to make your race day betting experience as simple and convenient as possible…with an extra sprinkle of fairy dust for fun.

Horse racing is serious business but it doesn’t have to be, a little luck is important too.  Best Fairy Flutter’s magic wand lets you quickly and easily select your horses based on the things you find lucky.

With Betty in your pocket or purse, all your need to do is wave your phone to pick out the best horse for you in any race at any of the day’s race meetings. Tap through to place your bets. Betty will let your know when you have a race coming up and will send you a message if you have won. So that leaves you free to simply enjoy the races, the fashions, the champagne, the company, the whole show. Betty is like your very own race day PA. What a nice fairy.

The BFF magic wand will be available for download just in time for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Make sure to add it to your pre-race day checklist.
