Was he wearing that mad coat of his? I used to see him at the big coursing meetings often.

He was indeed eacingstar, a proper gent. I used to bet with Stephen Little and just make my own prices up, he invariably said ok, you're on son.

John Pegley was just about the shrewdest knockout man in the ring.

Pegley is standing at Chepstow many years ago and a horse called Polish is scooting clear with two to jump.
Dodger having backed the said creature shouts,"I will Lay a £500 to £100 Polish".
Pegley thinking it is "finding it on the floor" immediately accepts the bet.
The horse comes down and does his money,LuckyHappy

I went to The Millenium Cup coursing final in Swaffham. Stephen Little was there standing wearing that rabbit coat. He went 4/7 and evens. I said I'll have evens the jolly, he said OK, you are on. Sir Mark Prescott's dog Daylami won that year. Not sure what year that was.

Little has always been a serious cyclist. He claims to have attended every UK racecourse on a bicycle.

I know someone who told me he once got stung betting Little that he wouldn't be able to make it to the station after the last on his bike in time for the train home. He was unaware that Little had previously tipped the guard to hold the train for him.

He used to shuffle in front of the rail at Bath, intent on his mobile, looking for an arb (Ladbrokes took pity and offered him FP on his bets, which gave him a good chance).

When I say"used", I mean up to the last meeting.

You were an arber, as I remember, regvarney.

I expect the pair of would have crawled over broken glass for a price from the night before.

Fred were the last to go.

How are you guys going to get by? Can you apply for arber-furlough?

He was placing his own bets in betting shops.

Legendary Rails Bookmaker Stephen Little talks about his early days as a school bookmaker, learning his trade with various layers, working at the dogs and coursing then jumping it at the deep end with rails pitches and taking on the big hitters.

Great Watch
