Newbury Racecourse and Entain have announced a new partnership in which Coral will be the title sponsor of the newly renamed Coral Gold Cup Meeting for the next three years.
The betting company will sponsor 13 races over two days at the meet on the final weekend of November, including the prestigious Hennessy Gold Cup, which was previously known as the Ladbrokes Trophy.
“We are delighted that Coral is to become the official title sponsor of the Coral Gold Cup Meeting, which is one of the most prestigious and anticipated events this side of Christmas and signals the start of the Festive season,” said Coral PR Director Simon Clare.
“With the launch of this exciting new partnership with Newbury Racecourse, we are strengthening our association with the sport through a race and race meeting steeped in history.”
Meanwhile, Newbury Racecourse Chief Executive Julian Thick said, “This is an exciting multi-year partnership for Newbury with Coral, a long-established and respected name in the horseracing world.”
“We’ve had a great relationship with the Entain team for the last five years and are excited to work with them on the next phase of this partnership to make the Coral Gold Cup Meeting bigger and better in the coming years.”
Coral’s latest agreement follows a slew of new sponsorship deals in recent months, with the Coral Welsh Grand National, the Coal-Eclipse, and the Coral Scottish Grand National all falling under the Coral banner.
