The collectively named BetBright February Festival will provide an excellent platform for our new sponsors to promote their on-line products and target a new audience in race goers. Doncaster is enormously proud of their jumping programme, and February forms a very important part of that with the historic BetBright Grimthorpe Chase the highlight which often throws up a number of Grand National contenders.”
Brian Farrell, Marketing Director for BetBright reflected: “As BetBright extends its sponsorship in horseracing we are thrilled to be working with Doncaster racecourse and the ARC team. It is especially exciting to be putting our name to BetBright February Festival which promises to be two days of great jumping action.

BetBright believes racing provides a perfect opportunity to connect with our existing customers and try and attract new ones and Doncaster’s jumps action provides a perfect platform to continue to extend this strategy.”
