Home » RMG appoints new chief betting officer

Ben Dowding, former director of betting at Racecourse Media Group, has been promoted to the role of chief betting officer.

The promotion is a result of the merging of the domestic and international betting teams.

Nick Mills, CCO of RMG, said: “Ben has a huge amount of expertise in the sector and I wish him every success leading the team to capture new international opportunities.”

Ben added: “I am delighted to have been asked to expand my responsibilities internationally. There are significant and exciting opportunities to enhance further both revenues and awareness for British and Irish racing via this new collaborative approach to the domestic and global betting markets.”

Ben joined RMG from The Jockey Club in 2013 to lead RMG’s partnerships, and then B2B relationships, before becoming director of betting with a key focus on RMG’s domestic betting, streaming and data business with bookmakers. Ben has helped oversee the move from a Bet to View model to a Watch & Bet turnover model which has driven a surge in performance; the introduction of real-time streaming in horseracing in partnership with STATS Perform and Phenix; and, more latterly, RMG’s development of in-play pricing via Coursetrack’s GPS data alongside Pythia Sports.
