Chandler Reps Arrested At Arc Meeting

William Hill Sports
This Victor Chandler arrested taking illegal bets story caught my eye, because it is in fact, one of the biggest non stories involving bookmakers i've come across in a long time.

Victor Chandler bookmakers representatives were arrested amongst various other unnamed bookmakers, for allegedly taking illegal wagers at this years Prix De L'arc De Triomphe meeting.

I gather Chandler's - "the gentleman bookmaker", were offering a betting service to their private VIP guests. Illegal in France, because the authorities only deal in monopolising horserace betting, and like to fleece their punters mercilessly via the Parimutuel system. The VC share price remains unnaffected.

Chandler Raided In France by Charles Price

The group, including Chandler's nephew and rails representative Butch Beaton-Brown, were caught in a raid on the corporate facility for British racegoers run by Horse Racing Abroad, who take around 1,300 punters to the Arc in Paris every year.

Chandler, one of the first bookmakers to start an online business, which he runs from Gibraltar, was questioned by French police officers from their racecourse gambling unit and told not to leave the country before a further interview yesterday.
