The observations of a chancer
Ian Carnaby has been writing for Marten Julian for several years. He has also sold gin in Hounslow and instant lettering in Bolivia, finding one job a shade easier than the other. In between times, he has presented sports programmes for the BBC and SIS, as well as writing about racing for The Sporting Life, Irish Field and Racing Post.
A committed horse player for the better part of 50 years, he has never had a betting account closed. This engaging ramble through a risk-taker’s life may explain why.
