Gibraltar, 28 November 2018 – BetVictor, one of Europe’s leading online gaming companies, is sponsoring for the first time the iconic Fighting Fifth Hurdle – the first Grade 1 hurdle of the 2018-2019 national hunt season – at Newcastle Racecourse this Saturday,1st December.
Following the successful three-year sponsorship of the BetVictor Gold Cup at Cheltenham’s November Meeting, the operator is investing in key horse races as part of its marketing strategy to boost brand exposure.
Matt Scarrott, Director of Sportsbook at BetVictor said “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Fighting Fifth Hurdle this Saturday. Horse racing is a key market for our sportsbook division and we strongly believe that the exposure we’ll get as part of this race will further enhance our brand recognition.”
The race has proved to be a key trial for Cheltenham’s Champion Hurdle over the years and we’re looking forward to see last year’s winner Buveur d’Air, who went on to claim Festival Glory, competing in this year’s race – Buveur d’Air currently heads the market at 4/5” added Scarrott.
Buveur D’Air is a planned runner in this year’s race and potentially faces three strong opponents: Samcro – who took the Ballymore Hurdle at the Festival last season; Summerville Boy – Supreme Hurdle winner; and Bedrock – who beat Samcro on his reappareance at Down Royal.
