FSB unveils new horse racing-focused betting site
FSB Technology has announced the launch of ‘Black Type’, a new sports betting website with a focus on horse racing.
The platform will feature a unique hybrid trading solution, which allows certain sports markets to be controlled by their own team of traders and others to be run by FSB staff.
Black Type has been created by FSB founders Dave Gowers and Craig Nicholson, in conjunction with Mylo Sangster, the grandson of famous racehorse owner and breeder, Robert Sangster.
“Having witnessed the evolution of the industry over the past 20 years, the UK market in particular has lacked a quality horse racing-focused sportsbook for a considerable time, and there is very little competition for the established, bigger operators,” Nicholson said.
“We wanted to draw on our knowledge and racing heritage to put that right, but most importantly we wanted to offer a very competitively-priced service while also being seen to lay a fair bet.
“Of all the managed sportsbook solutions, it was also a no-brainer to go with FSB as their platform was by far the most flexible and appealing to traders like us.”
