The UK’s leading luxury bookmaker, Star Sports was launched as Star Racing in 1999. With the acquisition of independent bookmakers Vickers, Waldron and Turner & Kendrick, the company soon outgrew its on-course roots. Now based in Brighton, Star Racing was rebranded in the summer of 2009 to reflect this growth and the wider portfolio of services offered to its clients. As befits the most exclusive private bookmaker in the world, we are justifiably proud of our fantastic team.
Star Sports are the UK’s leading luxury bookmaker and have prominent racecourse betting pitches, including at the headline events of the year: the Cheltenham Festival, Epsom’s Derby meeting, Royal Ascot, and Glorious Goodwood.
Star Sports are also the current sponsors of the English Greyhound Derby, which was staged for the first time at Towcester from 2017-2018 and in 2019 has a new home at Nottingham. Star Sports, founded and owned by Ben Keith are also regular race sponsors of UK horse racing events.
