The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 19… Tristan from TopSport joins us to talk about a tough weekend for the bookies, the postponement of the Golden Slipper meeting and all the action from the return of the AFL and NRL.

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.
