Pertemps Network Revealed as July Cup Sponsor 

The top European sprint has a new sponsor | Racingfotos

Newmarket's G1 July Cup is to be sponsored by Pertemps Network, one of the UK's largest recruitment agencies.

The top-class sprint, with a total prize fund of £600,000, is part of the QIPCO British Champions Series and takes place on the final day of the Boodles July Festival, which concludes on Saturday, July 15.

Pertemps is already a major sponsor of racing at the Cheltenham Festival, where it has given its backing to the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle since 2002. It was also previously the sponsor of the St Leger at Doncaster during the 1990s.

“We are delighted to welcome Pertemps Network as the sponsor of the July Cup in 2023,” said Sophie Able, manager of Newmarket Racecourses and international director at The Jockey Club.

“Pertemps Network has a long and proud association with The Jockey Club stretching back over 20 years and it is great that they have made the decision to return to sponsorship of Group 1 Flat racing.

“The Pertemps Network July Cup is always a great spectacle and looks all set to be another marvellous contest this year, as three-year-old and older sprinters lock horns for the first time at Group 1 level.”

 Tim Watts, lifetime president of Pertemps Network, added, “The July Cup is one of the most historic sprint races in England and we are delighted to have our name associated with it.

“Pertemps Network itself has a significant pedigree for backing British racing and we are very much looking forward to the Newmarket event next month.”

There are currently 18 entries for the Pertemps Network July Cup, headed by recent G1 Commonwealth Cup winner Shaquille (GB) (Charm Spirit {Ire}).
