23rd October 2018 – Following on from the news that they will be sponsoring the Grade One Clarence House Chase Raceday at Ascot in January, as well as four races this weekend at Cheltenham’s Showcase meeting, Matchbook Betting Exchange has announced that Tom Stanley and Donn McClean will join Bryony Frost as Brand Ambassadors. The trio will work alongside Team Matchbook, detailing exclusive access to their racing schedules and providing regular contributions to insights.matchbook.com and the Matchbook Betting Podcast allowing Matchbook’s customers unique insight.
Grade One-winning jockey Bryony Frost took the world of horse racing by storm last season after turning professional, claiming big race successes on Black Corton and Milansbar in a memorable season and she is focussed on further success in the coming season. With her talent in the saddle being complimented by her infectious enthusiasm for the sport, there couldn’t be a better representative for Matchbook racing.
Bryony Frost said:
I am delighted to re-sign with Matchbook! It’s been a tough summer with injuries but it’s great to be back riding. I am lucky to ride for some brilliant yards and I just want to keep working hard and improve as a rider.
Racing UK pundit Tom Stanley will be hosting Matchbook’s weekly horse racing podcast as well as having a regular column on insights.matchbook.com. Tom’s love affair with racing started when his father’s first horse, Cheval De Guerre, won first time out at Warwick for Kim Bailey in the mid-nineties. Tom’s first job in racing was with Oddschecker as a tipster and columnist and that led to him landing a job with Racing UK. Over the last five years, Tom has worked his way to becoming a lead presenter on the channel and boasts an equal passion for both flat and National Hunt racing.
Tom Stanley said:
I am thrilled to be joining the Matchbook team ahead of what promises to be an extremely exciting year.
