Rammo did things in a very big way, does any old racecourse regular remember his minder Wayne, what a size he was as Tell says his guys were 6 foot 7 plus and 25 stone those days seem a lifetime ago.just thinking in a couple of months it will be 25 years since another good guy did his money at Ascot.he  can still hear the bell as the horses swing into the straight in the last.

hope you are well Gal

regards

Ronnie.

confidence or lack of it plays a   massive part ,great if you are on a winning run but how do you react to a losing run?

I'll always remember Terry Ramsden from many years ago. I worked casually for a bookie back then and we went to Windsor for a Saturday evening meeting. The bookie I worked for went to the bar and had a drink with Alan Bailey who he knew well. This bookie rarely gave tips but he came back and told me there was a horse running for the first time (2 year old) at Ripon in a seller on Monday and to have "a few quid on it". The horse was Cry For The Clown and the words that my friend relayed from Alan Bailey was "it should never be in a seller but Terry wants to run it in it". Horse had the worse draw I think and was 20-1 in the morning and I think it was still something like 10-1 SP but not sure of that. It won by 5 lengths and they had to go to a then record price to buy it back. It won a listed race either next time out or the race after. Peter Bloomfield, who at the time was an apprentice I believe, rode the horse. My bookie friend told me later that Ramsden bought Bloomfield a BMW or Merc as a present.

From a thread on here a few years ago:

Me: The luckiest bookmaker alive must have been Michael Geraghty, who not only had Ramsden as a punter, but actually got paid too.

Ladbrokes weren't so lucky. He knocked them for fortunes, then went bleating to the press when they wouldn't pay him the return on a cash yankee he'd had in one of their shops.

Paul, When I worked for the rancid firm I was given the task of telling him he wasn't getting paid, not only was he not getting paid, he couldn't have a bet against his winnings. Fortunately for me he didn't turn up to collect. He was punting in cash because his credit had been stopped, but they would still lay him crazy bets. He was punting over a monkey in forecasts and tricasts on each dog race while he was sorting out his horse bets for the afternoon.

Super stuff. Came from nothing to take on leaders of disgusting regimes worth billions
in the middle east and the Queen etc in the racing world for a short period.
And he did it with charisma and celebrated in style.
I would have loved to live that life.

Like most with incredible energy for life and the ability to gamble most of their worth the inevitable
bankruptcy occurred. Many resent these characters because they are jealous of their success and the ego/self confidence required to get to the top however briefly.

Just a shame the interviewer couldnt get him to delve into the incredible
darkness of prison and going broke that followed the success.

An incredible life and sounds like he still has the appetite to continue work and play into his 70's and beyond. Stories of his generosity are also starting to come out.

Please have more of this rather than the long list of dullards that bettingpeople has become in recent times.

Mildly irritating was Ramsden's frequent use of "it's a maths equation" as if that explained anything.

The betting People series is great and we are lucky we get to se them. I will watch all 4 parts tonight. Mr Snugfit was one of my favs but Ramsden bought him after finishing 2nd in National.

ah dermot browne - a lesson learned early in life, all is never what it seems where money/power/influence are concerned,,,i expect he wasn't pulled in for the brunico ride when it was clear as day that it was ill judged at best..pulling his own family's horse when fav for the champion hurdle - different level!! if you told me he'd been in wuhan in mid 2019 I wouldn't BAT an eyelid...

It's often the case that people that make big money in the city or gambling ( former in TR case ) aren't what most people would call likeable people.  In the case of gambling you have to think that you are a brilliant judge and nearly everyone else is a clueless clown. So you could say having a certain kind of mindset  is key. Is it likeable ? Probably not.
