Racing Post

The Racing Post is a well recognised and highly trusted brand in sports publication; it remains the sole specialist provider of horse racing news, data and sports betting information in the UK and Ireland.

FL acquired the Racing Post from the Trinity Mirror in 2007, partnering with it’s former editor who became the CEO.

The strategy was to grow digital revenues from a new mobile platform while maintaining the annuity cash-flow from the core newspaper business. FL and the CEO successfully repositioned the business as a successful multi-platform content business with a significant digital revenue prior to it’s sale to Exponent, a leading UK private equity firm.
