Welcome to Little Blue Pen

Welcome to Little Blue Pen, your new home away from home, if you like horse racing.

A Website All About UK & Irish Horse Racing

Little Blue Pen is mainly about horse racing, for fans of horse racing, with occasional items on other sports, when there is sufficient interest. We focus on British and Irish racing, because these events are readily available for us to collect data and derive ratings upon.

Wait… We did mention our… ratings? No, read on…

Using Technology to Develop Speed Ratings

We’re technologists at heart, and we build tools which we think should exist which don’t, so stay tuned for some nice racing features.

Producing Tips from Speed Ratings

The main thing we do is handicap (rate) UK and Irish race horses using a variety of techniques and tools. Rather than publishing our ratings, we publish their product: our horse racing tips.
