Welcome to Donn McClean Racing

If, like Donn, you are an avid horse racing fan, or if you just want to learn and know more about the sport, then you have come to the right place! There is plenty to read in the pages of this site, including a selection of Donn’s columns and feature articles from the Sunday Times, the Irish Field and Sporting Life. Also highlighted are some of Donn’s thoughts on horses to follow over the coming weeks and months.

If betting is your thing, you might be interested in Donn’s Bets, a subscription service limited to 50 Private Clients which details Donn’s thoughts and recommended bets every Saturday and every other day when there is racing on terrestrial television, as well as his ante post advice. Clients have made a significant net profit since the service went live in 2009. Feel free to visit this page if you are interested in finding out more.

Donn has ghost-written five racing autobiographies, most recently that of the late Pat Smullen, nine-time champion jockey and one of the greatest Irish jockeys ever, completed with Pat’s wife Frances. In 2011, Donn assisted Sir Anthony McCoy, the most successful National Hunt jockey of all time, in writing his autobiography. Donn has also written three other racing autobiographies – Better Than Sex, the autobiography of former top National Hunt jockey and now racing broadcaster Mick Fitzgerald, Moscow Flyer, with trainer Jessica Harrington, and Riding the Storm, Timmy Murphy’s autobiography – and he has worked with leading racing photographer Pat Healy on the Healy Racing books Thrills and Spills and Flat Out.
