Virgin Bet is the new sponsor for the G1 Sun Chariot S. at Newmarket on Oct. 7.
In addition, Virgin Bet will also sponsor three more races on the card, as it expands its sponsorship portfolio across The Jockey Club. The company already sponsors races at Exeter, Kempton Park, Sandown Park and Wincanton. Part of the QIPCO British Champions Series, the Sun Chariot is the first Group 1 Flat race sponsored by Virgin Bet.
Virgin Bet Marketing Director, Ric Leask, said, “We are hugely excited to expand our partnership with The Jockey Club and support this prestigious contest through the sponsorship of the G1 Sun Chariot S. at Newmarket's Rowley Mile.
“The Sun Chariot S., with its rich history and exceptional line-up of past winners, perfectly aligns with Virgin Bet's commitment to top-tier horseracing.”
Sophie Able, Newmarket Racecourses and International Director at The Jockey Club, said, “We are delighted to welcome Virgin Bet to Newmarket and are thrilled to be strengthening our partnership with them with such a prestigious contest, which will be worth a record £275,000 in 2023.”
