Connections Retire 2023 Grand National Winner

Corach Rambler hit horse racing betting sites extremely hard in 2023, romping home in the Grand National as the 8/1 favourite. 
He was well-backed again this year, but unseated jockey Derek Fox at the first fence. The horse then ran at the Punchestown Festival, but was pulled up. 
The two-time Cheltenham Festival winner will now head off to retirement, with connections believing the horse may have been spooked by his mishap at Aintree. 

AI Technology Boosts Euro 2024 Betting Turnover

Sportradar’s artificial intelligence-driven personalised odds technology, Alpha Odds, made a major contribution to betting operator trading during the qualifiers for the 2024 European Championship. 
The AI technology will be used extensively by football betting sites during the tournament this summer to ensure their risk exposure is managed efficiently. 
Euro 2024 is expected to generate more than €62 billion in global betting turnover, making it one of the most important events of the year for the sector. 

AceOdds Acquired by Better Collective
