Online bookmaker Winner Sports have announced a major sponsorship package with Jockey Club Racecourses, which covers nine racedays across the UK and three televised Channel 4 races.
Among the most prestigious races they will sponsor include the one-and-a-quarter-mile Listed Fairways stakes at Newmarket on the raceday of Saturday 30 May, plus a trio of Channel 4 races from Sandown on Saturday 13 June and action over the jumps at Cheltenham on Saturday 23 October.
The action from Prestbury Park on the latter of those dates includes the coveted Showcase Trophy, previously won in 2013 by Balthazar King who has since won the Glenfarclas Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and finished second in the Crabbies Grand National in 2014.
Winner's deal also supports Racing UK and SiS televised sponsored days at Carlisle, Wincanton, Nottingham, Warwick, Huntingdon and Market Rasen.
Adam Bloom, Head of Sport at Winner.co.uk, said: “we are proud to team up with Jockey Club Racecourses and announce the launch of this exciting major sponsorship deal.
"Horse Racing is a huge part of our focus, we have always had a strong horseracing portfolio that we cater for to the best of our ability. With competitive odds, fantastic promotions and live streaming there is no better place to bet than Winner. Our decision is to continue to invest heavily in horse racing and teaming up with Jockey Club Racecourse allows us to achieve this strategy.”
Paul Fisher, Group Managing Director of Jockey Club Racecourses, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Winner.co.uk into our diverse portfolio of sponsors across the Group and I’d like to thank them for their support. As we invest all of our profits back into horse racing, I hope Winner.co.uk feel proud that their investment is contributing to the success of the UK’s 2nd most attended sport.”
