iWeekend Card

Weekend Card

After over 40 years in the business Marten and his team get to hear a lot from clients about what they’re after from a service, which is why we see it as a priority to cater for as many of their needs as possible. That is why we have decided to bring back the Weekend Card – our best-selling service for many years before we decided to give it a rest with a view to revamping it when we felt the time was right to embrace and engage with the new technology.

Edition four available Thursday 16 August

Looking forward to the new Flat season I have commented elsewhere on the vast number of unraced, lightly-raced and unexposed horses that seem to be around. I am not sure why this is, but I had no trouble finding 50 of them to write about in the Dark Horses Annual and another 20 for the select Premier List. I intend to focus more on these horses in the weeks ahead.
