BetVictor Named New Sponsors of Queen Mother Champion Chase

October 16, 2013

BetVictor has been named as the new sponsors of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, which is held at Cheltenham in March.

The online bookmaker will also support the Tingle Creek at Sandown and the Haldon Gold Cup in Exeter as part of ‘The Road to Cheltenham’. 

Peter McNeile, Head of Sponsorship at Cheltenham Racecourse, said: “I am thrilled that BetVictor will be sponsoring three such tremendous two-mile chases during the Jump season.

“The Haldon Gold Cup is the first of the major races over this distance and, with the BetVictor Tingle Creek being a primary target for Sprinter Sacre in December, it’s a great time for BetVictor to get involved in these type of races.

“Sprinter Sacre has the potential to become one of the most high-profile champions of the Jump racing world. I hope that we will be witnessing more impressive performances from him over the season, culminating in him going for successive BetVictor Queen Mother Champion Chases at The Festival.”

Charlie McCann of BetVictor commented: “We are delighted to lend our name and support to three such fantastic and prestigious races culminating in the BetVictor Queen Mother Champion Chase next March.

“We are looking forward to the likelihood of seeing Colin Tizzard’s star Cue Card make his reappearance in the BetVictor Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter next month, and that of the Champion Chaser Sprinter Sacre in the BetVictor Tingle Creek in December.

“The latter is looking to join such greats of the turf as Moscow Flyer and Kauto Star to win the Sandown feature back-to-back and we can’t wait to begin what we hope will be a long and happy association with all three tracks.”
