New racing paper to be launched Saturday,
Fabre, Pletcher and Stoute joins Racing World Daily™
A new international horseracing daily is set to be launched this weekend, with full scale coverage of all principal racecourses in England, Ireland, France and North America.
Racing World Daily™, which will be FREE to download from the internet and priced at just 35p / 50 cents in printed format, is being produced in co-operation with Globeform and their editor has signed up some top class names to write on a daily basis.
“Obviously, we will be competing with the Kentucky Derby preps in the States.”here in England, says ‘RWD’ editor Geir Stabell, “and we must be absolutely up to date, not only with facts and figures, but also when it comes to having the best writers and tipsters. This has been hard work setting up but I am delighted to be able to announce that we are now set to go and we have some world class names on the team. I am sure readers will appreciate their expertise and knowledge. It all kicks off , with the in England and a massive day of
Three top trainers will be writing once or twice weekly each for Racing World Daily.
Sir Michael Stoute has agreed to sumbit material for a two-page spread on English racing, while Andre Fabre will have a similar slot on French racing andis the principal North American correspondent.
“This may sound a bit over the top”, Stabell says in a press release, “but, quite frankly, the days of the traditional racing journalist are long gone. Just look at the Racing Post, a highly successful publication, they now employ mostly trainers and ex-jockeys for the main chunk of the editorial stuff, while the rest of the paper is about 90 per cent tipping. Journalists only write small snippets and collect quotes these days, and that is how the public likes it. I am not saying we will be going down the exact same route, but I can assure you we will give ‘The Post’ in England and ‘The Form’ in the US serious competition.
Like the Racing Post, the new paper will also employ a whole host of proven tipping experts. “We plan to have ten individual tipsters giving selections to all races”, Stabell comments, “again just like our main rival here in the UK. It more or less guarantees that we will be tipping numerous winners on a daily basis and this is clearly the way to go.”
Racing World Daily will be the first paper to take full advantage of the 48-hour declaration system in England. “We will carry tomorrow’s cards, with form, ratings, selections etc., in today’s paper”, Stabell explains. So, when you get your copy of the Friday issue you can study the Saturday form, and so on. I believe this is going to be very popular”.
The launch issue of Racing World Daily will be free to download on Globeform’s web site from, and you can also pick up your FREE printed copy in all betting shops around England and Ireland, at OTB’s in New York, Chicago, Florida and California and at most PMU shops in the Paris region.
‘RACING WORLD WEEKLY’ is set to follow with a similar launch in October. “That will be a publication more for the breeders. We will offer the complete package”, Stabell says, “and I do not think it will take long before we have a large market share on both sides of the Atlantic. The recession offers a wonderful opportunity for us, since we are expanding while so many others are cutting back. It will be a case of the survival for the fittest”.
