I've been a bookmaker for 30 years but you would have to worry for the future of the bookmaking profession.
It is a dying trade when you consider that we would have nine bookies on a Saturday at Shelbourne now, whereas 20 years ago there would have been 30. In those days there were 23 at Harold's Cross, now we have four. On the provincial tracks there would only be one or two bookies on a night.

There are no young bookmakers coming into the game and there are a lot fewer punters on the ground than there used to be. The best dogs in the country race at Shelbourne and the quality of racing is as good as ever but a lot of the €100 or €200 punters have disappeared and many of the heavy hitters have also gone.

The young people have the Poker halls, Casinos and iPhones. But the bookmaking business remains very old-fashioned.

The race tracks have introduced the electronic boards and ticket printers but I found them a bit too slow for Shelbourne, where the real action is packed into a minute just before the off.

My two sons, Tadgh and Emmett, have come into the game and they have degrees from Trinity and Queens. Honestly, I don't know why. But Tadgh is a great man for the form and is very interested. Emmett is more of a part-time bookie but it is in their blood I suppose.

We have the best bunch of dogs we've had for a long time this year but a few of them have been injured and, as so many of these trackers need an inside trap, you can rule out a lot of dogs from races. We saw Kereight King in the Easter Cup where he was drawn in five and his chance was gone.

Looking ahead to the Irish Derby, there are at least 20 dogs that could be strongly fancied at this stage – Tyrur Sugar Ray, Ballymac Vic, Skywalker Puma, Kereight King, Isabels Boy and Paradise Madison are among them. I'd be tempted to have a few bob on PJ Fahy's young dog Tyrur Balotelli if someone went 150/1 about him.

Looking at Saturday's Easter Cup final, I was amazed to see Paddy Power quoting Ballymac Vic at 4/5. I'll have a bad night if he wins. He's horribly drawn and I'll be filling my bags with him. He should be 11/8 or 6/4 at least. I will keep North Bound on my side as he has a great draw.

For years I kept a few dogs, trained them myself and had some good winners but I am too old now and it takes too much time. Anyway I like to stay in bed on Sunday mornings! I'll qualify for the old age pension shortly and I might retire and train another one or two.

The priority for the game, though, it to get young people involved. The tracks are full of people of my age. We need the missing generations who are aged between 20 and 50.

There is so much new, strategic, innovative and radical thinking required for all these old busted models and it requires someone with a strong vested interest to make it happen.

Its not going to come from jaded bookies scraping a living or in semi-state bodies whose corn is handed to them on a plate every year to run the horse and dog industries.

Nothing changes until everything changes.

My problem with Ted was over a dog called soviet merc in the early stages of the derby , me and a half a doz punters rush in to take 9/2 i managed to get e50 on the dog which hacked up, when i went to collect my winnings he made some excuse and refused to pay me,  i went to the stadium manager and after he had a word with Hegarty he agreed to pay half my winnings, as i said in a previous post i never went near him again. and never will .... having said that most of the bookies there that night are gone and Ted and co still remain.
The racing at shelbourne is excellent and over the years staff have work hard to make a good night for all punters big and small, I wish them well for the future.
Report Kelly April 12, 2013 2:39 AM BST
Once upon a time greyhound racing and betting flourished here in the North ( where it all started track wise initially via Celtic Park --now a shopping centre ) .

In the run up to and including the  2nd world war years attendances of 10 to 20 thousand at a meeting were not uncommon , second highest attendance ever anywhere in the world was at Celtic Park --42,000 approx one night in the 1930's . There were regularly 50 plus bookies on the "inside" , and 100 plus on the "outside" .  Turnover was huge , one prominent bookie I knew was £3000 up after 3 races one night at Celtic , a semi detached house in a good area locally cost £500 then . And it wasn't a final night or anything , just a normal Friday night .

Plenty of money about  , my father had dogs and although it was never discussed at home I suspect he often had bets of up to a grand laid without difficulty . He stopped having dogs in late forties  , family and business considerations the big factor , plus a few unsuccessful punts in a row  , never discussed though , my mother might fill in the blanks now , but it is a long time ago and the world has moved on a lot since then .

So being an on track bookie must have been lucrative then , huge turnover , particularly during the war when the Yanks were about and had money to burn relative to exchange rates etc . Thats why there were so many  bookies, earning a good living , and not afraid to lay because there was a competitive market .The punters had few alternatives , SP bookies were viewed as undesirables by the state here , subject to repeated visits to court  , and regular fines etc and harassment .

All change now , 5 or 6 I hear ( I dont go ) at our local track , one or two bigger punters , the rest just "night out " punters .  Little interest , no media interest or publicity .  Tote used to be big here in 1930's , two of my aunts worked in it in the early days pre marriage and children . State legislation did not encourage it though , too big a Presbyterian influence in government .

Went greyhound racing most nights while I was working in Dublin in the early 1960's , good crowds then even mid week at Shelbourne  , and lesser ones at Harolds Cross .  Plenty of bookies then , and they would take a bet ( not from me , I was not earning enough to be a flambeau punter  , and they were all other peoples dogs ! ) .

But with 24/7 betting facilities and opportunities nowadays , the punters need to have a bet is easily satisfied , it is supply and demand in reverse  , and if you are betting on golf or football or cricket or whatever you have a good idea what the participants have had for supper before they grace the stadium or track  .

Cant see a lot of light at the end of the tunnel , horse racing in Ireland is also such a good product ( generally) that greyhound racing cannot compete on a similar level , and even if the bookies involved in both sports overlap there has been , and will continue to be , fewer bookies standing  in both sports .  The high street bookies dont give a fiddlers about greyhound racing unless its on the box and can generate revenue for them .

Sad , but possibly inevitable .

How do you expect anybody to bet in pups races when there is so much information hidden to the bookmakers trying to price the races up. Do you expect them to bet 9/2 the field,is that what you are saying ?. If they bet to 300% and went evns each of 6,no bookmaker would want to lay a decent bet and who would blame them.
As for Hegarty,now this is a unique operator who has stood the test of time,unlike hundreds of his counterparts. I happened to clerk for him one derby final night,and he was and more than likely still is a proper bookmaker. The speed he could call bets at was frightening,as were some of the sizes of the wagers. Its not just all bluster like most of them so called layers,this man will lay monster wagers and still does to this day. He deserves alot of admiration in my opinion,because he has the whole game sewn up nowadays,and workrider wonders why he continues to flourish. It might have something to do with that he works harder than the rest,has better contacts than the rest,has better customers than the rest,and knows more about the dogs than the rest.

Jimeen i agree with all that you say there, he will lay you any bet you want, never had any problems with Ted [or Tadgh or Emmet]. I also agree that i would not want to be pricing up races with limited to no form to go on and dogs improving chunks. I am always picking up for the Shelbourne Park bookmakers on the greyhound forum when people are moaning about them.

However there is no point in them complaining nobody is betting as one of the books did to us last night if they're pricing to 250%
Report jimeen April 12, 2013 11:36 AM BST
But if they are pricing races to 250% then they are more or less saying that they dont want to lay a bet on these individual races. I made a book myself at the dogs one time and to be honest with you it wasnt the lack of success that forced me to pack them in,it was that i couldnt do both horses and dogs,and the dogs were only a pastime for me really. I wasnt a big winner at them either,because it wasnt high stakes stuff,but i could win enough to pay a few bills thats all. I found though that pups races were never too beneficial to myself,although during the boom it didnt seem to matter that losing a few hundred on pups races really mattered because you had a chance of getting it back with interest later on. Suddenly i could see that people were not interested in parting later on,and quite a few punters only wanted to bet in pups races when they had a second or more in hand.

First encountered the massive overrounds at Tralee track in the eighties , up to then I always reckoned most of the bookies at tracks I frequented were "trying" .  But Tralee was ludicrous , 5 dogs at 2/1 and one rag would have been typical .

So it becomes a chicken and egg situation , no bookie value , no punters .  Or no punters , no bookie value .  A bit like liquidity on here in a lot of markets has deteriorated to ( not necessarily dogs just ) .

Just dont see things going anywhere , pity as our greyhound scene used to be strong economically and provided jobs etc and interest nationwide .  Dead here in the North from what I hear , characters , who once abounded, are few and far between . Few bookies , and some of them I suspect borrow their "tank" from elsewhere on the way in .

Kavvie,dont be so ridiculous will you please. How can anybody price pups races when they have never been seen in public before. Obviously breeding has a bit to do with it,as do the dogs connections,and then there are their trials. Apart from inside information,the rest of it is pure guesswork.
Workrider,i only worked for him a handful of times,but that is irrelevant to this argument. Nowhere did i say he was pure as driven snow,i dont know too many succesful people in any business who qualify for that description,let alone somebody in a gambling orientated business. Of course he is going to use both his contacts and his influence to help himself,who wouldnt ?. What is wrong with backing his own dogs in any race they were involved in ?. I dont see your bone of contention here,i really dont.

Part of the problem for greyhound racing / breeding is the drift from the land / rural communities . The younger people ( probably quite rightly and with the application of logic ) dont want to stay "down on the farm " as much as they used too .  Not when their mates are in USA or Australia or Canada or wherever , no one to walk / feed / look after the dogs . Lots of families here in the north and in the deep south have children / grandchildren in far flung places , walking dogs aint that attractive , particularly if there is no opportunity to make money out of it .

Used to be that a huge number of those in the rural community ( and some in city environments) kept a few dogs and / or the occasional horse out of interest and availability of facilites , and for the "sport" .  Not nearly as prevalent now as in days of yesteryear . Society changes , not always for the better , although I cant blame the young uns , would be following that route myself if I was 20 .

Vis a vis massive over rounds at the dogs picture this

I went to a restaurant last week for a simple lunch

A piece of chicken potatoes broccoli and carrots . A perfectly acceptable meal arrived before and it took all my willpower not to lick the plate. Imagine my horror when they charged me 9.95.

No job can be sustained without a feasible and viable profit margin . Methinks the dwindling numbers amongst the on course bookmakers fraternity is as much a result of a lack of profit margin as a result do dwindling turnover.

Unfortunately that is the way the betting rings and indeed many other types of business are evolving.

The Internet has sounded the death march for many different areas of commercial activity. The betting exchanges slashed bookmakers profit margins and seriously affected turnover. The mobile phone betting apps introduced over the last 2 years have also slaughtered turnover.

Have you see the exchange add on TV where the guy is contemplating cashing out. There is your post office manger, the social welfare guy, the Limerick solicitor based in Dublin jailed for 4 years. If the drinks companies advertised so aggressively there would be public outrage and rightly so. Yet as far as I know there are no restrictions on gambling advertisements many of which appear on tv during the afternoons or halftimes of sporting matches where a vast number of impressionable aged kids are watching.

Clonmel Produce stakes hoping for 64 entries they only got 15 that shows the decline,they are not even breeding the pups anymore.

You're going to try and argue you said there was more than 15 entered.

One word is all that is needed, Booooooooooooom

It appears to me you said there was 15 in it and this was your sole reason for a decline.

Stop talking rubbish Wildman and admit you telling lies, NGU he will resort to name calling and he will try to argue with those facts. He is already seething after my big win tonight.

Not sure what you mean by your last post dark rosaleen, MD does not work for a bookmaker as far as u know, I think you must be getting confused with someone else. He always had time to come on here last season an share his views so I don't see why/ho
