September has seen several developments and a hive of activity at Betgoodwin. The exciting announcement of our yard sponsorships (Alan King and Chris Gordon) as well as the announcement that we will be sponsoring the Flat seasons last big handicap, the November Handicap at Doncaster has seen our social media department busier than normal! Its safe to say our Twitter feed @Goodwin_Racing & @betgoodwinuk has blown up in recent weeks as has our Instagram page @goodwinracinguk. Follow us across all platforms for all the latest news and exclusive offers.
Another piece of news to share is that our eagerly anticipated TV advert is currently under production starring our brand ambassadors Hayley Turner, Mike Smith, Tom Cannon, and a cameo from Ebanie Bridges! This is likely to hit your screens before the end of the year!
In addition to sponsorships our on-course presence kicked off as Plumpton had its first meeting of the season. Plumpton, a track dear to our hearts was as busy as always and we look forward to standing on the rails and in the ring for there regular Monday fixtures and family fun days! We will also be sponsoring two race days over the festive period, look out for offers and news regarding this in the coming weeks.
On the trading front September meant international break on the football front and despite England’s shocking form punters still wanted to be on as they faced off against Germany at Wembley. A draw was good enough for us and a great result for our number crunchers on the back row. Despite England’s indifferent form they are freely available at 7/1 to win the World Cup in November. The world cup presents an unusual opportunity for punters in the sense that for the first time in years we will have a winter break.
Current favorites Brazil continues to attract support and are by far our biggest loser. Argentina, unbeaten in thirty-four games have understandably attracted support as well Messi to be top goal scorer in what is likely to be his last world cup. Harry Kane is the current favorite for golden boot honors however punters have latched onto Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema in recent days. France are currently 6/1 second favorites behind Brazil and likely to be Europe’s main challenger for World cup supremacy.
Horse Racing was uneventful from a trading point of view although the Arc De Triomphe in the first week of October was lively to say the least. Luxenbourg was our biggest loser in the book with support for both the German raider Torguator Tasso and the Japanese contender Titleholder. Late money for Alpinista meant anything else bar the front two in the market would have been a winner. Luke Morris’s cool demeanor at the two-furlong pole looked ominous and he subsequently prevailed by a half-length from the running on Vadeni, for the master of Heath House Sir Mark Prescott. Although a loser for the firm, a winner for racing!
Looking forward, as well as sponsoring the Betgoodwin November handicap we will also have extended opening hours on the 4th & 5th of November to cover the breeder’s cup, from the home of US racing, Keeneland. This year will see multiple European challengers as well as the stars of American racing competing for the ultimate prize of a Breeders cup Victory!
