Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) and Royal Windsor Racecourse are delighted to welcome Marathonbet as sponsors of the Summer Sprint Series at the Berkshire racecourse.
Run since 2016, the Marathonbet Sprint Series will take place over the course of 10 famous Monday Night fixtures at Royal Windsor, with the £75,000 Final taking place on Monday 29 July.
As in previous years, horses taking part will be eligible to run in the final should they have placed in the top six of any of the nine qualifying races, all of which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Racing. In addition, it is planned that a number of the fixtures will be simulcast on Sky Sports Main Event, bringing the Series to an even wider audience.
Natalia Zavodnik, CEO at Marathonbet, said: “We have established a positive relationship with the ARC group and are keen to build on the successes we have seen at the Brighton Festival of Racing and, more recently, Doncaster’s November Handicap. We look forward to working with Windsor Racecourse on what should be a fantastic summer of racing.”
Executive Director at Royal Windsor Racecourse, Simon Williams, said: “The Summer Sprint Series has been a great success since it was introduced to Royal Windsor three years ago and we’re delighted to welcome Marathonbet on board in 2019. Our Monday Night Racing here at Royal Windsor is always incredibly popular, and we’re excited about working with the team at Marathonbet – both on course and along with the enhanced opportunities to promote their brand through Sky Sports Racing broadcasts.”
Royal Windsor Racecourse hosts 27 fixtures across the summer, with highlights including the Marathonbet Summer Sprint Series, as well as July’s Midsummer Stakes and the August and Group 3 Winter Hill Stakes in August.
Other highlights of the summer include Gentlemen’s Day, featuring Ministry of Sound and Basement Jaxx on Saturday 29 June and Rita Ora playing live after racing on Saturday 24 August.
