In time for Cheltenham 2018, Matchbook marketing details that it has signed two of racing’s fast-rising stars, who will match the betting firm’s ‘ambitious trajectory’.
Bryony Frost, 22, has been a revelation in her first professional season in National Hunt racing. In December, she became only the 2nd female jockey to win a Grade 1 aboard the exciting Novice Chaser Black Corton, and the pair will team up at this year’s Cheltenham Festival in the RSA Chase.
The daughter of Grand National winning Jockey Jimmy Frost, Bryony will be seeking to emulate her father by winning the world’s most famous steeplechase last April.
Joseph O’Brien, has achieved more in the sport by the age of 24 than anyone in its history. Son of record-breaking trainer Aidan O’Brien, Joseph’s career as a jockey was short, but spectacular.
O’Brien’s Group One wins spanned six countries and included the Derby, St Leger, 2000 Guineas, Irish Derby, three consecutive Irish 2,000 Guineas, a Breeders’ Cup Turf, a Grand Prix de Paris and a Dubai Sheema Classic. His career as a trainer has been no less outstanding with Grade 1s over jumps and a Melbourne Cup on the flat, the race that has eluded his father.
Frost and O’Brien will work alongside Matchbook marketing, detailing exclusive access to their racing racing schedules, and further contributing regularly to Matchbook’s Insights Betting Blog and the Matchbook Betting Podcast.
Commenting on the Brand Ambassador appointments Neil Campbell, Matchbook CMO, said: “Exchanges give bettors maximum value and maximum control of their betting, but they don’t always put the customer first. Matchbook is different, and we want as many people as possible to experience the future of betting, which is why we are giving something back at one of the busiest times of the jumps racing season”
