Cheltenham Gold Cup-winning trainer Jessica Harrington is the latest big name to be unveiled as an ambassador for Unibet.
Harrington, who landed the Unibet Irish Gold Cup and Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup with Sizing John last year, has agreed a deal which will see her supply her exclusive thoughts to the multi-award winning Unibet blog in the lead up to this year’s big festivals.
Harrington joins the likes of champion Trainer Nicky Henderson, Gold Cup-winning jockey Nico de Boinville and leading flat trainer Richard Hannon, who are all already brand ambassadors for the online sportsbook.
As part of the deal, Harrington will pen a weekly blog on the Unibet website, which will become daily for each day of the Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown festivals later this year, giving racing fans a crucial insight into the wellbeing and status of runners such as Sizing John, Jezki and Supasundae.
Staff at Harrington’s Commonstown Stables in County Kildare will also be fitted out with branded riding wear while the horseboxes arriving at racecourses up and down Britain and Ireland will also feature Unibet branding.
Speaking of the deal, Harrington said: “My great friend Nicky has nothing but positive things to say about his partnership with Unibet and I am excited to come on board and share the latest news on the likes of Sizing John, Jezki and Our Duke.”
Ed Nicholson, Head of Group Racing Communications and Sponsorship for Unibet, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Jessie on board with Unibet. Her horses captivated the imagination of the racing fraternity last spring, and it is clear to us that racing enthusiasts would welcome regular updates on her stable stars, as well as thoughts on all her weekend runners – both sides of the Irish Sea.
“We intend to provide regular video updates from Commonstown Stables and provide informative and entertaining content for her Unibet blog.”
