MyRacehorse hires ex-Betfair Head of Racing to lead marketing efforts in the UK and Ireland
Micro-share horse racing syndicate MyRacehorse has appointed Will De Nardo as UK and Ireland Marketing Director and Global Gaming Advisor as it looks to expand its customer base in the region.
De Nardo joins MyRacehorse
De Nardo joins MyRacehorse after almost 10 years in the betting industry at Flutter Entertainment brands, where he worked for Sky Betting and Gaming, FOX Bet and most recently Betfair as Head of Racing.

“Finally, the experience of owning an elite racehorse can be accessible to anyone – which is truly game changing for the sport.”
