Betfred has entered into a partnership with the Arena Racing Company and Doncaster Racecourse in relation to the St Leger festival, where Betfred will be the title sponsor.
The Betfred St Leger Festival takes place from 14-17 September.
Sponsors will also be able to promote their sponsorship at other races such as the Doncaster Cup, May Hill Stakes and Champagne Stakes.
Fred Done said, “Being associated with the St Leger Festival as a Betfred sponsor is more than a sponsorship. It’s a privilege.” “I’m proud to be associated the world’s most prestigious classic, which is synonymous with horses such as Triple Crown winner Nijinsky and Dunfermline (for the Queen) and Oh So Sharp (for Sir Henry Cecil).
Martin Cruddace said that ARC was delighted to have Betfred sponsor the St Leger festival.
Cruddace said, “We are delighted to welcome Betfred in as the main sponsor of the St Leger festival and the Betfred St Leger.” “Fred Done, his team and their long-time support of British racing is reflected in their inclusion of this historic race into their sponsorship portfolio.”
“The entire sport has benefited from Fred and his team’s partnership and we are looking forward to an amazing Betfred St Leger Festival this September.”
Betfred was named as the new sponsor for Oaks and Derby races at Epsom Downs last month.
