Jamie Clark was Sports Editor of Coral bookmakers between 2014 and 2017 during their merger with Labrokes and a key period for the British betting industry. Working as a bookie’s runner on the point to point circuit in the Midlands and at Market Rasen Racecourse where his late godfather had a trackside pitch growing up, he has had ties to horse racing all of his life. A regular visitor to Cheltenham during the National Hunt season and York over the summer, he has been involved in Horsebetting.com since its inception. Jamie now brings you his take on major news stories from the racing world and those all-important betting tips.
A sports fanatic, he holds a Masters degree in Web Journalism from the University of Sheffield and has reported on many Cheltenham Festivals, Grand Nationals and Flat meetings during his career to date. He has also covered World Cups in football, rugby and cricket, Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and global championships in many other sports. Away from the horses, Jamie is a long-suffering Crystal Palace supporter, enjoys snooker and athletics, and working out at his local gym. He had a fondness for stayers and mares, as well as Irish horse racing. At one time or another, he has worked with most of the major bookmakers in the UK to enhance their coverage of horse racing and many other popular sports.
