Thank-you for visiting my website, where I hope to talk all things horse-racing: betting, blogs, opinions and tips.
I’ve been lucky enough to have gained experience in many areas of the horse racing industry. Obtaining a third level degree in Equine Science has given me a solid base in the game I love.
Ex-employers include Ballydoyle Racing (four summers and one year fulltime) and Celtic Bookmakers, while I currently hold a position with At The Races.
I’ve written for a couple of betting websites including BetBright and Paddy Power while I also ghost-wrote a number of pieces for the Hong Kong Jockey Club. A part of my current job is watching racing, a key ingredient in trying to make sports betting pay, so I’m in a fortunate position than most, to do so.
I’m a firm believer in form study. Between the form book and the massive amounts of information available to the punter, along with video study, all material in making sports betting pay is at our finger tips.
With some labour and a little bit of luck I hope to make this blog pay for followers. I get a massive kick from winning people “free money” and there is an enormous buzz from solving the equation that is a horse race. I’d just like to add that I’m not a professional punter, I do this as a hobby and also as a potential career driver.
Long-term goals are varied where my career is concerned. It’s always been a dream to work on TV, either in a presenting or a punditry role. Working with owners and trainers in a racing manager position is also an element of the game that would really excite me. Placing horses in the right races at the right times is a big part of racing.
I’m both a fan of flat racing and national hunt, but from a betting perspective I feel there are better opportunities on the flat to profit.
Hopefully this basic blog gets more people interested in horse racing, while increasing the amount of silver that crosses their palms (and helping in ‘getting my name out there’).
