Hellas Horse Races SA -a subsidiary of OPAP, on Saturday officially presented its cooperation with GBI Racing, one of the biggest horse racing companies in the world.
The presentation of the cooperation was made at the Horse Race track in Markopoulo with guest star Mrs Hayley Turner, the top woman rider of all times.
The cooperation between the two companies unofficially began in early 2016 and offers to Greek horse racing lovers and betting enthusiasts the opportunity to bet on the 12,000 horse race events organized in the UK and Ireland.
“We are certain that from this cooperation, Greek horse racing have nothing else but to gain,” Odysseas Christoforou, vice-president of Hellas Horse Races SA told ANA and welcomed Mrs Turner to Greece. “Turner’s achievements are impressive and I am a big fan of her career. GBI Racing is a raw model company and will help Greek horse racing in their effort towards the rebirth and development of horse racing,” Christoforou said.
“It is the first time to visit Greece and the facilities I have seen so far are impressive and could become world-class level. This place look wonderful,” Hayley Turner told ANA, adding that her sex never played a role in her career. “I did not feel any difference, but surely women must train properly to strengthen their bodies and to compete with men. It is a wonderful sport and I would recommend to Greek women to begin,” she said.
