A really good nights racing last night at Sandown. Decent trading conditions and plenty of opportunities for everybody. Today we switch to the Oaks and tomorrow the Derby when the summer racing really starts to step up a gear
If you are a Betfair newbie you may not know that the Oaks at Epsom was Betfair’s first market way back when they started in June 2000. Mark Davis reminisced on his blog about it. I think Mark, as an insider, gives a better insight into the early days at Betfair, better than I can. That are some interesting bits in there - ”From memory, I think about £3,400 was matched.” Mark says on the first ever market. By last year that had risen to nearly £3m!
