Five days of spectacular racing begins today at the Glorious Goodwood, the highlight of the summer sporting and social British flat racing calendar. The event is always bursting with fabulous fashions, chilled champagne and top racing stars, as well as music and dancing to round off the day’s racing action.
As more than 100,000 people flock through the gates of Glorious Goodwood to enjoy the chic, relaxed and incredibly stylish atmosphere, Betfred has signed an agreement to sponsor two races on Ladies Day at Glorious Goodwood.
Betfred will sponsor the opening race on Thursday July 28th, the Betfred The Bonus King Handicap will be shown live on Channel 4, as well as the last race on the card, the Betfred.com Handicap.
Betfred chairman and co-founder Fred Done said in the release, “I’m delighted to be sponsoring two races at Glorious Goodwood and I hope this will be the beginning of a new relationship with the Sussex track…The whole festival looks to be outstanding and I am delighted to be associated with a fantastic course and high quality racing.”
Adam Waterworth, Goodwood’s managing director, added: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Betfred as a sponsor to Glorious Goodwood, and as Fred has said I am sure it is the beginning of a great relationship that we can build on for years to come.”
This news comes after the announcement of the new Betfred fantasy app.
