Jeremy Wray, CEO of Racing League, said, “Partnering with talkSPORT, ODDSbible, eToro, and The Goat Agency epitomises what Racing League is all about. These partnerships demonstrate our bold intent to forge long-term relationships with the next generation of horseracing sponsors, which in turn will help Racing League engage with a new type of racing fan. They are brands, who are positively disrupting their respective industries, which is what Racing League is aiming to accomplish with horseracing. We're thrilled to have them on board, and look forward to working closely with them and connecting with their audiences.”
