The autobiography of the UK's most successful sports gambler

As the founder and Head Trader of Centaur Global Limited, Europe’s largest Sports Trading Fund, Keith Sobey was used to taking risks. He thought nothing of placing a £1million trade on a football match or placing £30,000 on a horse to win at odds of 10/1 or greater.


On 14th September 2010 Keith was faced with the biggest gamble of his life and it had nothing to do with betting on Sport. What happened leading up to that event and the consequences of Keith’s decision form the basis of this autobiography. Stick or Twist gives the reader an insight into the life of a high level entrepreneur and the excitement and pressures of high stakes gambling.  


For those of you with an interest in betting, the book includes full details of the algorithm Keith has used for twenty years to identify horseracing bets.

Betting on horse racing features plenty of ups and downs and Keith Sobey has had plenty of both. His autobiography has two areas of

interest for racing fans. First, the author discusses his methods for picking out horseracing selections. Many books have been published with less material than this section alone. Second, the book features the story of how he built the Centaur Group which managed betting funds on behalf of clients among other things. The story of that company’s rise and fall is another interesting tale. There are plenty of thrills and spills along the way and there are lessons to be learned for the business world as well as the racing world. You don’t come across books like this very often and it’s well worth a read.


We live in a world where economic migration resulting from war and other factors is commonplace. Migrants explores the stories of five women, forced by circumstances to uproot their lives, and the consequences of their actions. Migrants  is a book in five parts. Each part deals with the story of a woman who is forced to change her life due to circumstances outside her control and journey to a new country.

““Migrants is my debut novel. I am a successful entrepreneur and had always wanted to write. A two year stay on the South West coast of Ireland proved an inspiration and I wrote my autobiography “Stick or Twist” which has now been published. This whetted my creative drive. A month after I returned to the United Kingdom I was watching the news when, over a series of evenings, the harrowing scenes of refugees from Asia dying by the thousands as they attempted to cross the Mediterranean was shown. The large numbers of people involved in this human tragedy, and the diverse nature of their backgrounds struck me. It inspired me to write a series of stories dealing with the many challenges facing individuals who undertake migratory treks in the hope of  bettering their lives.” KEITH SOBEY

I am intensely proud of completing and publishing my first novel "Migrants"

I was inspired to write the novel after witnessing the plight of thousands of Asian refugees night after night on the BBC News.

The novel tells the story of five women who are uprooted from their homelands and face adversity in trying to rebuild their lives.

The novel has received excellent reviews and is being printed in the Far East as well as Europe.

A sequel " Nomads" will be published in October

I look forward to reading your feedback."
