Horse Racing Commentator Voice

Horse racing commentator voiceAs a professional voiceover artist and impressionist, one style of I get asked to deliver regularly is a sports commentator. I’ve played football commentators for a wide selection of adverts on TV and radio, including the 118 118 TV adverts, which were a lot of fun to voice! Another style that’s a lot of fun to deliver is a horse racing commentator voice.

Horse Racing Commentator Voice

When you think of a horse racing commentator, if you’re of a certain age then you’ll remember the commentaries of the late great Peter O’Sullevan, or Irishman Des Scahill. They started off at a slow and relaxed pace, setting the scene and describing the early stages of the race. When the race gathered steam and neared it’s climax, so did their voices! They grew more and more excited and animated until the horses reached the finishing line, when they were at their fever pitch; often yelling at the top of their voices, creating the most incredible excitement and tension until the race was over and the victorious horse had won.

This one was a finalist at the VOX Voice Awards 2021. It was for ASDA in-store radio, for Budweiser beer

And an in-store advert for ASDA supermarkets, advertising Cadburys chocolates.
