Klub Graczy: Runners as they were known who would bypass the neighbourhood collecting wagers from clients in their own individual houses, with the local hotel, in back streets etc. Cockies short for Cockatoos who be placed in positions of high points and other keen viewing advantages to warn Runners and Bookmakers of approaching law authorities.

Evidently this was all illegal though the authorities were slow some thing and would not realise the magnitude of greenbacks being generated from this activity within the racing industry. In reality police often turned a blind eye to this because it seemed harmless and was in fact the SP bookmaker(bukmacher) supplying a site on the public.
