Profile

Balthazar Fabricius

Description
Growing up on the Goodwood Estate where his father ran the racecourse for the Duke of Richmond and his son, Lord March, has left Fabricius with betting coursing through his veins. After a stint at Ladbrokes, he started the private bookmaker in 2005 in the Mayfair townhouse, which are still its premises today, with help from members of the Goldsmith family. He wanted to reinvent old-school bookmaking principles and offer a luxury lifestyle to chancing HNWs.

Fitzdares take bets on all sports and specialise in looking after high-staking customers who come to them via referrals, much as one would when joining a rarefied gentlemen’s club.

‘We occupy a rare and exciting space dealing with the doers, the dreamers, the game changers,’ Fabricius says. ‘We are their private playground.’
