Who is Racing Profits?

My name is Richard and my passion is helping people to make their betting pay through developing profitable betting strategies.

I have been involved in horse racing for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Yorkshire and my Dad would take me racing to Wetherby, Doncaster, York, Catterick, Pontefract, Thirsk and to the open days at Malton and Middleham, which gave me a deep love of the sport.

At University I shared my house with a bookmaker’s son called Andy and he shared with me how to read form, price up race cards and how pro gamblers would track horses and mange their betting. Any spare time I had would be spent travelling to the dogs and horse racing with Andy and his Dad.

In 1996 I started betting full-time on course, and then as the exchanges were established online in 2002, I moved into laying horses and trading on the betting exchanges to make a full-time income.

I set up Racing Profits in 2009 to share what I have learned over the years and help other people stop losing money and start to make money from their betting.


Where are you going to start?

My advice is to build a profitable betting strategy around three key disciplines, backing, laying and trading. If you mix up your strategy and apply the right strategy to the right type of race, you will start to see your fortunes change. As you move from looking for ways to find more winners, to actually understanding how to make profit from a race or, even more importantly, which races to leave alone.

Backing Horses

Learn the secrets to reading form and profitable backing of horses to win or place. These are the big profit bets each day, when they land, they give your betting bank growth over time. Backing is for people who are patient and have the discipline to “make” profits.

Laying Horses

Learn how to identify weak favourites to lay to lose. I developed two lay systems based around the type of races which were most profitable for laying on the flat turf, all-weather and in jumps racing across the year. Laying is for people who like to “grow” profits predictably.

Trading On Betfair

The most reliable profits you can make on a daily basis are from trading on the pre-race markets on Betfair. Learn how to trade effectively and you can make a reliable £150 – £200 per day, as many of my subscribers have found out. Trading is for people who want to “build” profits.
