GAVIN CROMWELL: Successful Irish trainer Gavin Cromwell becomes BETDAQ brand ambassador.


BETDAQ has signed Grade 1-winning National Hunt and Flat trainer Gavin Cromwell as brand ambassador.

The partnership, which begins immediately, will see the well-connected and successful Cromwell share racing views and insights with the exchange’s multi-sport content site, betdaqtips.com.

Cromwell, who previously worked with the likes of Gordon Elliot and the late Dessie Hughes, is best known for multiple Grade 1 winner Jer’s Girl and landing the 2017 Welsh National with 13-year-old Raz De Maree. The dual-purpose trainer has also overseen Flat winners, including Princess Yaiza and Sretaw at the Irish Cambridgeshire.

A farrier by trade, Cromwell had shoed Olympics, Gold Cup and Grand National-winning horses before taking out a training licence in 2005. The yard, in Danestown, County Meath, Ireland, now schools a string of more than 60 horses for top owners, including JP McManus.

Shane McLaughlin, Managing Director, BETDAQ, said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome Gavin to the BETDAQ team. Having burst onto the scene in recent years, he is an exciting trainer that is really going places.

“With Gavin’s charges set to be involved in plenty of high profile races, we look forward to giving BETDAQ users the inside track from the yard and look forward to supporting the Danestown team as they continue to grow.”

Gavin Cromwell said: “I’m delighted to join the BETDAQ team as a brand ambassador, it’s an exciting time to be involved. Their new 2% commission initiative shows they are committed to growing the business. With an ever expanding team here at Danestown we are pleased to have BETDAQ on board and look forward to working with them in the future.”

A committed partner of UK and Irish racing, the GVC-owned betting exchange is title sponsor of the Punchestown Champion Hurdle and BETDAQ Chase Day at Kempton. BETDAQ is also principal partner of promotion-chasing League One team Charlton Athletic Football Club.
