Pertemps Network Group is the new sponsor of the 2020 G1 St leger S. at Doncaster on Sept. 12, which will now be run with a purse of £350,000, the Arena Racing Company announced on Monday. Besides the final Classic of the UK racing calendar, the recruitment firm will sponsor the entire St Leger Festival for the term of one year, with the option of continuing in 2021. It was the sponsor of the race from 1995-1998. The four-day St Leger Festival begins on Sept. 9 and lasts through Sept. 12, and is broadcast on Sky Sports Racing and ITV Racing.

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Pertemps Network Group back to Doncaster for the St Leger,” said ARC Racing Division Managing Director Mark Spincer. “Pertemps Network Group are well known for their previous association with the race as well across the sport as a whole. We very much look forward to working with them this year, and hopefully into the future also.”

“The St Leger S. brings back fond memories, especially from 1997 following the win of Silver Patriarch (Ire) (Saddler's Hall {Ire}), whose portrait by David Dent proudly stands in our board room,” said Pertemps Network Group Lifetime President Tim Watts. “In these unprecedented and extremely challenging times, the hospitality and entertainment industry are facing an overwhelming difficult period and their future remains under threat. It gives us enormous pleasure that we are able to support Doncaster Racecourse and the St Leger in this way.  We have been fortunate to be a part of some of the greatest races and everyone at Pertemps Network Group looks forward to more history being made.”
