Race Form Analyst | Journalist

Sydney-born Simon Dinopoulos joined the Racing and Sports' form analyst team in 2012.

He's had a long interest in racing and moved to the Nation's Capital in 2008 to attend the University Of Canberra, graduating with a Bachelor of Sports Media in 2011.

During his time at University, he worked at the Canberra Racing Club undertaking various roles included working as an assistant judge; a photo finish operator; and author of the club's weekly "Under The Whip" column, which featured in the Sunday Canberra Times.

At Racing and Sports Simon has quickly established himself as a respected member of the race form team, bringing a penchant for deep statistical analysis to the table. As a journalist he contributes stories for the R&S website, writes industry updates & trial reports. 

As a race form analyst he specialises in NSW, West Australia and Singapore racing for the R&S form services. 

Simon relishes the collaborative work environment at R&S under acclaimed international handicapper Gary Crispe, one that encourages robust discussion about the relative race performance of individual horses. The R&S racing and breeding database has 100's of millions of pieces of horse racing data, form and ratings information. This greatly assists Simon's work. 

Simon can be heard on Friday/Saturday mornings on Sky Sports Radio - Racings HQ, discussing the weekend racing.
