Refer a Friend Program

If this type of indiscretion is detected, Horse Racing Professionals further reserves the right to discontinue any membership of Horse Racing Professionals for life. Any and all of these decisions will be final and not subject to any review process.


Our Responsible Gambling Policy


Horse Racing Professionals maintains and projects a strong commitment to provide all our members with responsible gambling advice, methods and practices, by teaching them how to invest intelligently.

For non-professionals, gambling should be enjoyed as a recreational activity to which genuine profits may be obtained. However, it may also cause a problem for a minority of members in some circumstances.

Horse Racing Professionals aims to prevent access to our products and services if we believe any member is displaying behaviour, sending correspondence or making verbal comments that could be viewed as:

  • Indicative of being compulsive.
  • Providing us with reason to suspect that the person may have a gambling problem.
  • Betting to excessive or unsustainable levels.
  • Engaging in practices that could be viewed as being irresponsible gambling, or lacking discipline.

If a third party connected to a member contacts us and gives us similar reason to stop, cease or put a membership on hold, Horse Racing Professionals will comply with that request.

In all cases the member will be advised by email (as supplied to us at the time of joining) that his / her membership has been cancelled under the terms and conditions of the Horse Racing Professionals responsible gambling policy. No further correspondence will be entered into subsequent to the said email. We will treat cases of irresponsible or problem gambling with the strictest of confidence. We will also review all cases on their individual merits, and strive to provide the best possible result for any or all members displaying any symptoms of problem gambling.

Auto Rebilling of Membership subscription


To help ensure that our members receive uninterrupted, continuous service, we utilise recurring memberships on all packages for your convenience. Your membership will automatically roll over and be billed to your credit card after your initial membership period has expired.

When you sign up for Horse Racing Professionals, the account with which you pay with will be charged, and it will also be automatically debited at the conclusion of your subscription period, in advance, for an automatic renewal of your existing subscription. Should you wish to not renew your subscription, it is your responsibility to advise us prior to the automated renewal and charge of your subscription, or cancel the automated payments yourself. If you fail to do so, we are not liable for any refunds associated with the automatic renewal of any of your subscriptions.

For example, if you sign up for a monthly subscription your card will be billed on that day, and on the corresponding day of the following month your membership automatically renewed until you cancel your subscription.

A membership can be cancelled/stopped after the expiration of the period for which membership was paid by simply contacting the office via email which you’ll find on the site menu under the ‘Contact Us’ tab. Please choose your packages carefully and contact the office immediately if an error has occurred as Horse Racing Professionals does not provide refunds on any packages.

Refunds are not provided part of the way through a subscription period, although you can of course cancel your subscription at any time to avoid making any future payments. You will continue to receive the service you signed up until the end of the subscription period you paid for.
