David Gately

David fell in love with horse racing in a golden year back in the late 80’s early 90’s watching the likes of Vo Rogue, Super Impose and Better Loosen Up. He was immediately drawn to the thrill of elite equine competition and form analysis. 

He sought advice from industry leaders and set himself a goal to become the No.1 form analyst in the country. He started an email tipping service amongst a small group of friends which spawned his own ratings/information service which became a full-time job in 2006 when David joined Best Bets. He then went on to make his television debut with thoroughbred racing channel TVN in 2008. 

David has a strong passion around educating punters and believes this, along with making racing entertaining and fun, is the key to engage the next generation to this wonderful sport.

Ongoing spinal damage brought to an end to his time in the saddle, which included a Melbourne Cup win on Jeune in 1994 and the accolade of becoming the youngest apprentice to win the Golden Slipper on Century Miss in 1979.

After commencing work at Sky Racing, Wayne travelled Australia hosting meetings, and worked in the studio on raceday coverage, before settling in to his role as a trackside form analyst on Sky Thoroughbred Central.

Mick Wallace
