Filling the gap for expert horseracing trading solutions

Filling the gap for expert horseracing trading solutions
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Due to its complex nature, horseracing differs from every other sport in pricing and traditionally it has become more difficult for new entrants to offer competitive pricing, writes Alan Casey the new Head of Trading at AllSported.

The main problem our research has shown in the marketplace is a dearth of trading expertise and limited options for new operators to make headway in the British horseracing market. Added to this, out-of-the-box solutions do not favour those who want to stand out from the crowd and offer their customers an unbeatable customer experience.

It is often the case that platform providers lacking expertise in horseracing, with latency issues in pricing leaving operators at risk of incorrect pricing and open to targeting.

In the past, platform providers have looked at horseracing as a box-ticking exercise and treated it like any other product or content they add to their offering and, as a result, operators using these platforms have found it tough to gain market share and, in a lot of cases, even turn a profit from horseracing.

Today trading rooms are being looked at by finance teams as cost centres rather than profit generators, meaning they are being run to optimum efficiency by the financial controllers. It is impossible to compete with the major high street bookmakers’ trading rooms unless you triple your resources and budget. This is where automation is key.

As customers move more internationally focused that pool of horseracing trading expertise gets even smaller. South African, US and Australian racing have grown in popularity and provide bookmakers with the chance to offer round the clock horseracing coverage. This popularity comes with a risk as trading rooms don’t have the vast expertise required to price every race around the world.

So how can these issues be eradicated? The aim is to provide a made-to-measure offering for your customers which does just that and sets the bar for others to follow. How does a sportsbook stand out from the crowd without the trading room teams of tier-one bookmakers?

AllSported uses an information aggregation and reiterative model based on a set of values to produce one price that reflects the selection’s 100% line within that market. Bookmakers can then add their own preferred margin, giving you total control of your own overround, liabilities and giving your customers the ultimate betting experience. All delivered through an extremely low latency Push API which means you won’t be left exposed by price moves.

Part of the Spotlight Sports Group and launched in 2019, Racing Post and partners Banach Technologies and TXODDS developed the new best-in-class horseracing trading solution AllSported. AllSported combines the expertise and knowledge of all three partners to provide customers with made-to-measure odds, engagement-driving content and risk management all through one streamlined integration. This helps bookmakers grow market share in the multi-billion pound horseracing market.
