Horse Racing | Press Article 17/04/24

Unibet, official betting partner of the Qatar Goodwood Festival, will sponsor a further three races at next week’s premier meeting, taking their number of sponsored races at the festival to 12.

Unibet have added three Group 2’s; the Unibet Lennox Stakes, the Unibet Richmond Stakes and the Unibet Vintage Stakes to their list of sponsored races, which already includes the likes of the Unibet Golden Mile and Unibet Stewards’ Cup.

All three races have provided a host of high-profile winners in recent years, including the likes of Galileo Gold (2015) and Pinatubo (2019) winning the Unibet Vintage, Golden Horde (2019) and Supremacy (2020) winning the Unibet Richmond and Toormore (2015) and Space Blues (2020) winning the Unibet Lennox Stakes.

Unibet has become one of racing’s biggest supporters since its launch in 2013, currently sponsoring over 1000 races across both the Flat and Jumps in the UK, including 16 Group / Grade 1’s and 20 Group / Grade 2’s.

Ed Nicholson, Head of Kindred Group racing communications & sponsorship, commented:

“We are thrilled to be associated with the Qatar Goodwood Festival and are delighted to have added three races of such quality to the sponsorship. You only have to look at some of the names to have won the three races to see what high quality contests they are.

“We are all set for a cracking five days racing and I cannot wait to see a capacity crowd once again on the Sussex Downs.”
