Brighton Racecourse, Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) and Marathonbet have announced they will continue their partnership for the 2018 Festival of Racing.
The three-day meeting is a highlight of Brighton’s racing calendar and will take place between the 8th and 10th August. The online bookmaker will be headline sponsor for all three days of the Festival and its branding will appear throughout the course.
On the track, Wednesday 8 August features Brighton’s richest race, The Hobgoblin Mile, with Ladies’ Day on Thursday hosting both The Brighton Challenge Cup and the Brighton leg of The Silk Series, a race for female jockeys, which was won in 2017 by eventual Silk Series champion, Megan Nicholls.
Racegoers will be able to enjoy the racing alongside a whole host of entertainment, including vintage food stalls, pop-up bars and music alongside the iconic views over Brighton. Marathonbet and Brighton Racecourse will be engaging with racing fans in the run up to the Festival with competitions and chances to win prizes and tickets on social media.
Executive Director of Brighton Racecourse, Paul Ellison commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Marathonbet back to Brighton for the Festival of Racing in August. They were fantastic supporters of the meeting last year and we’re really looking forward to working with them to promote their brand, and the meeting, over the coming weeks.”
Natalia Zavodnik, CEO at Marathonbet added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Brighton Racecourse’s Extraordinary Festival of Racing for another year. Last year’s three-day event proved such a success that we couldn’t wait to get involved again.”
