By Community | September 4, 2012
Leading Irish animal feed company Connolly’s Red Mills has agreed a sponsorship deal for a 13-race Bumper Challenge to be run at Jockey Club Racecourse-owned tracks.
The races, which will be staged at Market Rasen, Exeter, Huntingdon, Carlisle, Warwick and Wincanton between September this year and April next year, will culminate in a final event at Aintree on May 17.
Points will be awarded to winning and placed horses throughout the series, with the equivalent of £2,000 in Connolly’s Red Mills products on offer for the champion trainer after the final event.
Paul Fisher, group managing director for JCR, said: “This partnership provides another boost to the grassroots of our sport and I’m confident the new initiative will prove a success with owners and trainers.”
