The true test of any successful horse racing advisory service is the test of time.
And having been at the forefront of delivering knowledgeable, authoritative and high-quality views, advice and information for well over 40 years, there is no doubt that Marten Julian has passed that test in style.
You will not receive the conventional views, opinions and selections that can be found everywhere else. You will receive original thinking from a truly distinctive voice of knowledge and experience.
NOW AVAILABLE & COMING SOON
WELCOME TO OUR WORLD
The comprehensive Marten Julian service is prepared and delivered with one clear objective – to provide our discerning client base of racing professionals and enthusiasts with information and advice to make their involvement in the sport even more enjoyable, beneficial and informed.
A series of meticulously researched publications – the Dark Horses Annuals (both Flat and jumps) and the more recent specialist Point-To-Point book of horses expected to do especially well under Rules – are supplemented by the most popular of all our offerings – The Weekend Card. Here, Marten and his hand-picked team of specialist writers produce the most in-depth, original and shrewd appraisal of the weekend’s action, with additional information for racing on weekdays.
Online Previews are also produced for the year’s top-class meetings, of which our Cheltenham Services remain the outstanding favourite.
The Marten Julian approach has always been centered upon customer care. Therefore, our small and friendly team is always available to support and talk to you as and when required. At peak times (when one of our services is available to download), we are available not only during traditional working hours but also in the evenings and at weekends.
YOUR COMPANION FOR THE SEASON
Marten’s Dark Horses Jumps Guide is packed with informed insights about recruits from France, the Irish point-to-point field and the bumper ranks together with news about unexposed and unraced horses that have the potential to progress through the ranks.
The Dark Horses Jumps Guide, now fast approaching its 50th year, is tried and tested as the authoritative source of information about unexposed and unraced horses.
MEET THE TEAM
The success of our highly-acclaimed family business rests in the hands of our fantastic and dedicated team; the writers, guest contributors, and those that work hard behind the scenes.
DARK HORSE RACING
Racing Club Ownership
Marten Julian has also been successfully involved with ownership since 1980, when he established the country’s first racing club, and acts for Dark Horse Racing as their consultant in racehorse acquisition and management. He has purchased the winners of over 50 races since that time – the majority acquired for relatively little money.
