Internet casino operator Bet365 has announced that it has signed a sponsorship with the Wetherby Racecourse which will see it continue its sponsorship of the Charlie Hall Chase.
Bet365 has been sponsoring the Charlie Hall Chase since 2003, which itself has been run every year since 1969. The race takes place in late October or early November every year and has a length of 3 miles and 1 furlough.
Commenting on the deal Bet365 Managing Director Steve Ibberson said, “We are very pleased to continue with our support of Wetherby’s premier race meeting for a further three years. The bet365 Charlie Hall Chase represents the first major test of the Jump season for the country’s leading staying chasers."
“There have been seen some truly outstanding horses triumph in this race and, once again, this season looks set to be yet another top quality renewal of this prestigious race.”
Wetherby CEO Jonjo Sanderson added: “Wetherby has enjoyed a fantastic relationship with bet365 over the last 12 years. We very much look forward to working together up to 2017 and beyond.”
