Our Staff



Lucinda has a passion for the ponies and has been writing about horse racing full time for over a year. She is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to racing and is always keen to have a flutter and on hand with a top tip.


Marcus is a bit of a history buff. He is really into the traditions and long history of horse racing and it’s evolution over the years. Plus pomp and ceremony are his thing and it is after-all “The Sport of Kings” (you don’t have to wear a suit to many other sporting events).



Paul is not only the editor and task master of CupCarnival.com.au, but also betting extraordinaire. Exactas, trifectas, quinellas, multi-bets… you name it he knows it and how to bet it.

Site Manager


Helen makes sure all of the news goes live, the content formats correctly, all images align and the site stays looking “pretty” after the writers/editor have messed with it all.
