Gary Crispe with Richie Benaud, King's Stand Day at Royal Ascot 2008
Racing and Sports was co-founded by Crispe in 1999 with the pursuit of bringing racing and technology closer together. The company was built with the combined focus of online publishing, IT development and new age race form.
Its establishment soon garnered attention and early recognition across the Australian Thoroughbred industry and even internationally from Timeform.
Crispe was approached to become the Head Of Timeform Australia and not long after, awards and accolades for the site began coming in from various thoroughbred organisations.
His association with the iconic Timeform brand added another string to the bow of the Canberra-based company which fast became the most visited website relating to the thoroughbred industry in the Southern Hemisphere.
Timeform ratings, Timeform previews, Timeform reviews and Timeform related content are well promoted throughout the site and the association has helped develop the Timeform brand outside of its UK headquarters.
Gary became highly sought after for his views on form, ratings and all things Timeform both nationally and internationally having regularly appeared on ABC National Radio, RSN Radio, Timeform Global Radio and BBC Radio.
As well as Timeform, the site which has gone from strength to strength since 1999 possesses an abundance of free resources ranging from news and form guides which stem from Gary's development of The Wizard Form Guide and work with Don Scott.
His passion for the industry is probably best highlighted by looking at life paths Gary could have ventured down had the pull of the thoroughbred not led him to his current role.
Holding degrees in both Civil Engineering and Economics, acceptance to the prestigious Harvard University in Boston in 1981 to do a masters degree will always be a proud moment of Gary's life.
Instead though, Gary elected to hone his craft and passion with the likes of Warren Block and Don Scott before taking another leap and establishing Racingandsports.com.au.
Gary was appointed as Timeform’s Australian Handicapper in 2000 and has worked closely with the iconic global ratings organisation building awareness to the Timeform brand in the southern hemisphere as well as producing Australian/New Zealand Timeform ratings for the Timeform Racehorses Annual.
