“We are totally committed to supporting British horseracing and are really excited to announce these new deals, as well as the extensions to some of our flagship Flat sponsorships.
“Our involvement in key races across York, Doncaster, Newmarket and Haydock means that we’ve got a calendar packed full of great sponsorships and we’re looking forward to the Flat season ahead.”
