The Emerald Hotel in Victoria has been named Australia’s favourite punting venue.

With the results of a recent nationwide survey by TAB fully revealed today, The Emerald Hotel was ranked number one by punters who flock to the venue to get all the racing and sport they can.

The Emerald is one of the iconic punting locations in Victoria and has hosted many a Melbourne Cup-winning celebration in the past.

In second and third spots are two familiar names located in Sydney’s east – The Clovelly (2) and Churchill’s Sports Bar (3).

The Breakfast Creek Hotel in Queensland and the Morphett Arms Hotel (South Australia) rounded out the top five venues.

It is no doubt going to be a huge weekend not only at The Emerald but at many venues throughout Australia.

TAB’s ‘Big Day Of Play’ this Saturday is an opportunity for punters from all walks of life to celebrate one of the biggest days of racing and sport by supporting their local venues.

Customers that head to their local will be dished up with exclusive offers through TAB’s ‘Venue Mode’ functionality which includes a discount off a main meal if you are dining in.

Other initiatives specific to Big Day Of Play include a $60,000 Team Tipping Challenge while Channel 7’s free-to-air Horse Racing broadcast will be integrated from The Steyne Hotel in Sydney.

Pubs and clubs have been warming up in preparation for the Big Day Of Play after doing it extremely tough for the past two years.
