Betdaq Expands Sponsorship with Jockey Club Racecourses

February 10, 2012

BETDAQ has agreed an expanded sponsorship deal with Jockey Club Racecourses for 2012.

The six-figure deal involves 10 of the group’s 14 racecourses and includes a second year of support for midweek Flat racing at Kempton Park.

The BETDAQ Wednesday Winner Series at the all-weather floodlit racetrack lasts for 39 meetings, each featuring four BETDAQ races. It began this month and concludes on Wednesday 19 December.

Included in the deal is a £5,000 prize for the stable staff of the most successful trainer from the 156 races. Last year’s inaugural winners were Richard Hannon’s yard and a presentation was made at the fixture on Wednesday 8 February.

Aintree’s evening fixture in May will be sponsored by BETDAQ, while the betting exchange’s support for Haydock Park’s Apprentice Series between May and September, won by Ryan Clark in 2011, continues for a second year.

BETDAQ sponsorship banners will also be displayed at seven other tracks belonging to Jockey Club Racecourses – Carlisle, Exeter, Huntingdon, Market Rasen, Nottingham, Warwick and Wincanton.

Paul Fisher, Group Managing Director of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are delighted to have come to this agreement with a high profile betting exchange in BETDAQ which is demonstrating its continuing commitment to British horse racing. As a Group we can offer major partners the scale they are looking for and we look forward to an ongoing partnership.”
