Fairyhouse Racecourse’s first fixture of the new National Hunt season will be sponsored by Novibet.
The online bookmaker, who agreed its biggest ever sponsorship of a horse racing event by becoming the Official Betting Partner of the 2023 Tattersalls Irish Guineas Festival at The Curragh back in May, will sponsor the full card at Fairyhouse on Monday 2nd October and have naming rights to all seven races, entries for which can be found here: https://status.hri-ras.ie/entries/Microsoft_Word__2023_ONOR299.PDF?id=2&v=20230928124002
The meeting looks set to feature high-class novice hurdle prospect Pour Les Filles, whose trainer Gordon Elliott commented: “I am looking forward to the first jumps meeting of the season at one of my favourite local tracks, Fairyhouse.
“I am delighted Novibet are sponsoring the entire card and I hope to relieve them of some of their sponsorship. I hope to have plenty of runners on Monday’s card and I would be looking forward to running Pour Les Filles in The 2nd To The SP Favourite at Novibet Maiden Hurdle.“
The deal marks a first sponsorship for Novibet at Fairyhouse, and Peter Roe, General Manager at Fairyhouse Racecourse, said: “We are delighted to welcome Novibet on board as sponsor of our first Jumps fixture of the season. This is a new fixture for us, so it is great to have a new sponsor on board for a fixture that is likely to be informative for the year ahead and an exciting day’s racing.”
Karl Riley, Novibet’s Ireland Country Manager, said: “Stepping into the new Jumps season with sponsorship at one of Ireland’s premier tracks is really exciting. Fairyhouse is a great place to have a presence and we’re very much looking forward to the action getting underway next Monday.”
In addition to their sponsorship of racing in Ireland, Novibet are the proud sponsors of current UK Champion Jump Jockey, Brian Hughes, who provides a regular column: https://www.novibet.ie/blog/horse-racing-tips/brian-hughes.
