Passionate about racing
Despite coming from what most would consider a wealthy background, after leaving school Trevor Asquith-Dawkins became a baker’s apprentice at the behest of his father, the infamous and eccentric millionaire saddler Godfrey Asquith-Dawkins. It was Godfrey who wanted his son to experience first hand what the real world was, literally, through kneading and prodding the dough of the working class loaf. And while these were exhausting times at the coal oven face, Trevor came out of his apprenticeship a man with a true taste of what being ‘regular’ was — although still unable to wrap his head around the concept of a baker’s dozen.
From here he went into print journalism — a career most others would struggle to jump into at the tender age of 20. But with the support of his father’s influence he gained various low-level roles at print outlets across West Yorkshire. After eight years of honing his craft, it would be a chance encounter with Jamie Clark at The Brigadier Gerard in York that would lead to his first opportunity in digital for horsebetting.com.
