#BettingPeople: PATRICK VEITCH

#BettingPeople: PATRICK VEITCH: Professional Punter Patrick Veitch has long been the bookmakers’ ‘Enemy Number One’. He started making the bookies pay whilst still at university, with his own punting and enabling others to win via his ‘The Professional’ tipping line. Since then he’s been the scourge of the bookmakers winning in excess of £10,000,000. Meeting PATRICK VEITCH with Simon Nott.

Patrick talks about a terrifying run in with a gangster that led to him going into hiding, loving the high life, keeping quiet on coups that included horses backed at 100/1 and 50/1, how he stayed ahead of the bookies and if he thinks it’s fair on the layers to organise a touch.

Patrick talks about being £10,000,000 up in 2009, how much ‘luck’ factors into his calculations, watching racing, losing sleep over his career choice, his motivation, the chink in his armour, would he succeed in other business, diversifying and the future.
