Novibet Sponsors Fairyhouse Racecourse’s Initial National Hunt Fixture
Novibet has secured the sponsorship rights for Fairyhouse Racecourse’s inaugural fixture of the new National Hunt season. This move comes after the online sports betting operator became the Official Betting Partner of the 2023 Tattersalls Irish Guineas Festival at The Curragh earlier in May. As part of this partnership, Novibet will sponsor the entire card at Fairyhouse on Monday, 2nd October, obtaining naming rights for all seven races. Detailed entries for these races can be accessed here.
This meeting is anticipated to highlight the promising novice hurdle contender, Pour Les Filles. Trainer Gordon Elliott expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “I am eagerly awaiting the season’s first jumps meeting at Fairyhouse, one of my preferred local tracks.”
Beyond their involvement in Irish racing, Novibet also sponsors the UK’s reigning Champion Jump Jockey, Brian Hughes. Hughes offers insights and commentary through his regular column, accessible on Novibet’s official blog.
“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.”
