Betway, one of the leading online bookmakers in the UK, announced earlier this week that they have signed a brand ambassador deal with 16-times runner up in the British Jump Jockey’s Championship, Richard Johnson.
Richard Johnson, 38-years old, has riden more than 2900 winners in his long astonishing career and is currently one of the favorites to be crowned champion jockey in April next year. He will be blogging for Betway twice a week and give his exclusive thoughts on horses, racers and rides. He will also be posting on social media and appear in Betway sponsored gear.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Richard Johnson has had an incredible career and everyone within racing truly hopes that he wins his first Jockeys’ Championship in April. He’s made a great start and we’re looking forward to providing our customers with exclusive insight into his rides. His blog is going to be a must-read for any racing fan.”
Richard Johnson said: “I’m really excited to be working with Betway in what is already an unusual season, with my good friend AP McCoy having finally retired! This is the first regular blog I’ve done and I certainly won’t be holding back. I’ll be giving Betway’s customers my honest views about my chances, as well as thoughts on other horses and big races. I’ve always started every season with the aim to be champion jockey and let’s hope I can achieve it this time.”
