The Leading Publisher

Turf Editions

French publisher of horse racing newspapers and online betting operator


In July 2004, Montagu led and arranged the Management Buyout of Editions en Direct from its founders.

Following the acquisition of Socpresse’s Paris-Turf in 2005, the group, renamed Turf Editions, became the leading French publisher of horse racing newspapers.

In July 2010, Turf Editions became the first private operator of online horse racing bets with its website and has been one of the top 2 players on this segment since then.  In March 2013, Turf Editions was sold to Jacques-Henri Eyraud who had been CEO of the group since 2009.
