Creating distinctive betting experiences

Who we are

We’re built on the foundations of the Racing Post, the pioneers of adding value to sports betting with brilliant content. Our mission is to relentlessly add value to global sports betting experiences, with a trusted, market-leading offering.

We’re experts in knowing how to take every betting experience further. And we drive audience growth and engagement through the Racing Post, MyRacing, Free Super Tips and Soccerbase brands. In the US, we are led by one of the most well-known sports betting publishers in the market, Pickswise.

We’ve also been helping the world’s biggest betting operators for decades. They’ve chosen to work with us to embed our premium betting content, marketing and affiliate partnerships into their platforms.

Sport never stops and neither do we. That means always finding ways to add value to insight, moving with the changing needs of customers and driving the industry forward with increasingly engaging sports betting experiences.

We’re all about taking bettors above and beyond the odds.
