Lessons from a fascinating week

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | September 8th, 2018

Another Carnaby selling race has come and gone. I admit it’s like entering another world  –  Brighton, the town as well as the racecourse, is a bit like that anyway  –  and now it’s time to readjust. This was the … Continued


Goodbye to Ian’s sports blog

Ian Carnaby's Sports News Rebecca's Spotlight | September 5th, 2018

A fond farewell to the Sports Blog that Ian Carnaby has been writing for many years on www.martenjulian.com I know he has a number of regular readers so we are sorry that it is no longer available but due to … Continued


You’re Hired so unlucky

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | August 24th, 2018

Just a few notes on horses owned by good friends of mine. I’ve written recently about Ray Greatorex’s Swiss Pride, who had a poor run through in the nursery at Goodwood on the Friday and took a few bumps and … Continued


Oakley Brown and Conor McGovern – watch carefully

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | August 22nd, 2018

Watching a couple of Henry Candy’s fillies run moderately this week I acknowledged that this has not been a great season for one of my favourite trainers. Also, with rain setting in at long last, stable star Limato is unlikely … Continued

Dettori only human at Ascot after all

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | July 21st, 2018

I was very pleased that Burnt Sugar won the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket last week, not merely because it meant a profitable weekend but also because it ended an irritating run of near misses. His SP of 7/1 was disappointing … Continued

Plan working well – send more money

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | July 12th, 2018

I have absolutely no doubt that the right move, betting-wise, when Belgium beat England 1-0, was to back England outright with a view to saving on the day of the World Cup Final. But right moves don’t always pay off … Continued
