Ben Dowding appointed Chief Betting Officer at Racecourse Media Group

20 March 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Racecourse Media Group has appointed Ben Dowding to the new role of Chief Betting Officer, following the merging of the domestic and International betting teams. Ben was previously Director of Betting at RMG.

With many bookmaker clients increasingly approaching rights acquisition on a global basis, RMG has combined its own domestic and international sales teams - led by Ben - to create one unified approach to the market.

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 said: “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.

Ben also represents RMG’s shareholding on the BoscaSports board, the Dublin-based retail betting technology specialists.
