Betway to sponsor Kingmaker Chase and Kingwell Hurdle

Betway has added to its horse racing portfolio by sponsoring the Kingmaker Chase and Kingwell Hurdle for the south west region of Jockey Club Racecourses.

The company has agreed to sponsor the Grade 2 Betway Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick on February 11, which has been won in the past by greats such as Long Run and Finian’s Rainbow, along with the full card at Wincanton on February 18.

The highlight of the day at Wincanton is the Grade 2 Betway Kingwell Hurdle, a key trial for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham, which was won by Rayvin Black trained by Oliver Sherwood in 2016.

Anthony Werkman, Marketing and Operations Director at Betway, said: “Betway took a significant step in becoming an Authorised Betting Partner in 2016 and that status now affords us the opportunity to invest further in British racing. We look forward to building relationships with new racecourses going forward, while also bringing our customers great offers.”

Carey Buckler, Regional Head of Partnerships for the south west region of Jockey Club Racecourses, added: “We’re really pleased to be working alongside Betway as they continue to invest in racing with Jockey Club Racecourses.

“The Betway Kingmaker Novices’ Chase and the Betway Kingwell Hurdle are both key races in the build up to The Festival and are great additions to Betway’s sponsorship portfolio.”

In October, Betway signed a three-year-deal to become an Authorised Betting Partner (ABP), which recognises they have a ‘fair and mutually sustainable funding relationship with British Racing’.
