#BettingPeople: ‘Juppy’ as he is affectionally known has been in the betting game all his life. He started working on course back in the 1990s at picnic races where they’d turn over large amounts of money in lively markets. After moving to London he worked with spread betting firm Sporting Index before relocating to Brighton and working for PanBet.
Now back in Melbourne, he’s a freelancer on course working for bookmakers as well as punting. Juppy was active at this year’s ‘Call Of The Card’ and has even recorded a series of food vlogs, no connection. Meeting Juppy with Simon Nott.
