Greenways Publishing has announced a new addition to its stable of sports media titles with the launch of The Racing Paper, with the first edition hitting newsstands this Saturday (14 April 2018) – just in time for the Grand National.
Aimed at racing and betting enthusiasts, The Racing Paper will be published every Saturday throughout Great Britain, and will be priced at £1.90.
Along with previewing all the weekend horse racing action, a 12-page Sports Bet section will also cover sports betting, including an exclusive column on football from Michael Owen, plus other leading personalities from Cricket, Golf, Rugby, Tennis, Motor Racing and American Football.
Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief David Emery, former head of sport at Express Newspapers, said: “We
have been considering a racing newspaper for a number of years. With recent changes in the market, such as
the loss of Racing Plus, and the 20% increase in cover price of the daily publication, The Racing Post (from
£2.40 to £2.90), now seems to be the perfect time to fulfil our ambitions. The launch also complements our
existing racing coverage via our monthly magazine, Racing Ahead.
Trade Marketing Manager, Neil Wooding, added, “Greenways Publishing are a growing sports media company
who are passionate about sport and we look forward to growing our media portfolio through both the
launch of The Racing Paper and through future acquisitions. Any interested parties should contact myself in
the first instance to explore opportunities.”
