Betway has this morning confirmed that it will extend its ‘official betting partner’ status of the ‘Randox Health Grand National Festival’ for a further five years.
The online bookmaker secured its betting partnership with Aintree back in 2017, with the Grand National becoming Betway’s biggest racing commitment in the bookmaker’s extensive sponsorship portfolio.
Anthony Werkman, Betway CEO, said: “The Randox Health Grand National Festival is a fantastic event and we couldn’t be happier with how the last two years have gone. The racing over the three days is of the highest quality and we’re delighted to be continuing our involvement for a further five years.
“With massive crowds on the racecourse and a huge TV audience, the National meeting is one of the biggest occasions in the sporting calendar and one that we are proud to be a part of.”
Races sponsored by Betway include the Betway Bowl, Betway Aintree Hurdle, Betway Top Novices’ Hurdle, Betway Mildmay Novices’ Chase, Betway Mersey Novices’ Hurdle and the Betway Handicap Chase, all of which are aired live on ITV (4-6 April. ).
For the 2019 Festival, Betway will host exclusive in-depth content on the Grand National, detailing rider and trainer insights. Betway’s first video features champion jockey Richard Johnson reflect on ’20-years of Aintree hurt’.
Dickon White, Regional Director for Jockey Club Racecourses North West, added: “We are thrilled that Betway will be extending its sponsorship at the Randox Health Grand Festival for a further five years.
“Over the past three seasons, Betway has brought tremendous energy and enthusiasm to its role as the official betting partner of the Randox Health Grand National Festival and we look forward to continuing to work alongside all the Betway team”.
