About Us

Over four decades Mark Read has been the undisputed master of invention in Australian wagering practice. He is recognized as the most progressive and competitive bookmaker/punter of his time. Mark Read was the leading bookmaker in Melbourne and Sydney before establishing Australian corporate bookmaking in Darwin through IAS Limited which remained Australia’s biggest bookmaker until its sale to Paddy Power PLC which trades as Sportsbet in Australia.

Mark Read became dismayed by the degradation of wagering at the expense of the punter in Australia. The cost of a bet and taxes have doubled since 2010 and, furthermore, if the punter wins he is restricted or barred. Only losers are allowed to play.

Mark Read’s success was about early adoption of leading edge technology from database computerisation, satellite communication and progressing to internet transactional solutions. All groundbreaking tools of wagering customer service. The mantra has always been – how to give clients a superior service.

In recent years we have established ourselves as the Australian leader in the evolving global sports commodity market, where the book is traded for the client, not against!

Today, our clients are partners who entrust their betting capital to our management.

A complex investment methodology is applied with the aim of generating absolute returns for members trading Hong Kong horse racing.

“Hong Kong has evolved as the pinnacle of the racing world and the benchmark for all other racing nations. Advanced technologies, the world’s most progressive racing administration and the massive betting pools per event attract global punters” – Mark Read.

Hong Kong provides the only global product with betting pools of the greatest liquidity making the evolution of betting possible. Here wagering managers or traders can service clients and exploit the market liquidity. The book is fashioned the same way (as the traditional bookmaking model), however the liquidity is provided by the massive totalisator betting pools.

The opportunity for our members is to leverage the smarts of one of the world’s most comprehensive horse racing analytical and modelling systems, as well as market intelligence gathered in real-time to drive successful betting returns.

Our team has a proven track record in international wagering markets especially Asian and Australian horse racing. Key employees have held senior positions in leading global wagering organisations, including publicity listed companies.

Our in-house account managers speak English, Mandarin and Cantonese and are here to help upon request.
