Betway makes sponsorship splash on the Flat
Online bookmaker pens deals to extend support from York and Doncaster to Newmarket and Haydock.
Betway has signed fresh deals with Jockey Club Racecourses, Arena Racing Company (ARC) and York Racecourse to retain its sponsorship of headline contests while extending its support to Newmarket and Haydock.

New ventures on the Flat for the leading online bookmaker include the Listed Betway King Charles II Stakes on May 20 and the Group 3 Betway Criterion Trophy on 1 July at Flat racing’s HQ.

Betway, who gained Authorised Betting Partner status in October, has also branched out to Haydock to sponsor the Group 3 John Of Gaunt Stakes on 10 June.

As well as covering new ground, the firm has renewed its backing of the Group 2 Betway Yorkshire Cup and Group 2 Betway Great Voltigeur at York, along with the traditional season starter, the Betway Lincoln.

Anthony Werkman, marketing and operations director at Betway, said: “We are totally committed to supporting British horseracing and are really excited to announce these new deals, as well as the extensions to some of our flagship Flat sponsorships.
“Although we are very much focused on the Betway Champion Chase at Cheltenham at the moment, the Flat will soon be upon us and these latest deals give us some fantastic exposure throughout the season.”
