Following its inaugural sponsorship last year, Betfred has increased its support of the Derby meeting and now has naming rights to the two-day fixture at Epsom, which will be branded the Betfred Derby Festival.  The company's partnership with the Jockey Club will continue until at least 2026.

Betfred will now sponsor six of the races across Oaks day and Derby day, including those  two Classics, with the original three-year deal extended by a further 12 months.

“Following on from a memorable two days at Epsom last year we are delighted to further develop our support of the Betfred Derby Festival and we very much look forward to working with Amy and her team to keep the fixture at the forefront of world racing,” said Betfred's Fred Done. 

Amy Starkey, managing director of Jockey Club Racecourses' east region, added, “Our relationship with Betfred spans many years and many major races, and we are delighted to be strengthening our partnership at Epsom Downs still further following a brilliant first running of The Betfred Derby in 2023.

“Betfred's support of British racing over many years is clear for all to see and we can't wait to get cracking with Fred and his team as we look to promote the greatest Flat race in the world in 2024 and beyond.”
