The announcement showcases Racing Post’s expansion in the trading space, as seen in recent months, with the launch of the AllSported joint venture with TXODDS and Banach Technologies.

Being a central figure in the growth of BETDAQ volumes over the past number of years, Casey is looking to grow AllSported to similar levels of success.
He expanded by saying: “I’ve been a horseracing enthusiast for years and working on the operator side for the past seven years has given me a real appreciation of how difficult it is to price horseracing and provide a viable product. I think AllSported bridges that gap and is a hugely significant product for the marketplace. The plug and play solution is key to getting more players in the horseracing space both in the UK and Globally.
“Racing Post has been a shining example of how a company needs to continue to diversify and innovate to succeed. From a newspaper to a multimedia content provider and now into the trading space – from afar – it’s been a really interesting few years for the business. I’m excited to be starting and I feel that AllSported can take the business to the next level.”
