The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 29… It comes around fast! We talk this week’s Winx Stakes – the first Group 1 race of the season – plus the rest of the Spring Carnival. Has there been much futures action, and what is the impact on wagering of all these pop-up races?

We discuss this and more on this episode of The Other Side…

We’re all punters. And we speak to a lot of other punters. On The Other Side podcast series we jump the fence and speak with Tristan Merlehan, Director at TopSport, to get an insight into modern-day bookmaking.

Tristan takes us through how a modern corporate bookmaker operates, the issues they face, and how changes in racing and sport impact the business.

Have you got a question for Tristan about anything we’ve discussed, or anything else related to bookmaking? Just get in touch with us and we’ll ask him on the next episode.
