Eventmasters to sponsor Doncaster race meeting
Eventmasters is to further boost its involvement in the sport of kings.
They will sponsor the complete card at the important pre-Cheltenham National Hunt Festival meeting staged at Doncaster Racecourse on 9 February.
It will be their fifth consecutive year as race day sponsors at the Yorkshire venue.
“We have a rich heritage with racecourses across the UK and are delighted to engage with Doncaster in a new and prosperous way this year,” said Denise Sheasby, managing director of Eventmasters.
“We are looking to further establish our successful relationship with the racecourse by including the iconic St Leger Festival in September within our hospitality inventory. Our continued sponsorship at Doncaster combined with our ongoing activities at Cheltenham, Chester, Royal Ascot, Warwick and York show how important the sport is to both us and our clients.”
Eventmasters’ race day sponsorship has previously enjoyed excellent support by owners who have used the date as part of a final preparation for the season’s Cheltenham showcase, former Champion Hurdle winner Rock On Ruby, (Eventmasters Corporate Hospitality Novices' Chase 2014) and Grade Two Dovecote Novice Hurdle winner Winter Escape (Eventmasters.co.uk Novices’ Hurdle (DIV I) 2016), entering the winner’s enclosure previously.
Rebecca Burton, commercial manager, Doncaster Racecourse, said: “Sponsorship is such an important aspect of our business strategy and having Eventmasters, a top corporate hospitality company, supporting racing in this way is absolutely fantastic and we look forward to working with them during the 2017 season.
“One element of the sponsorship deal includes naming one of the fences for the remainder of the season which supports the strong association they have with both flat and jump racing across the UK.”
Eventmasters also owns the Eventmasters Racing Syndicate which currently has both National Hunt and Flat horses in training with Ian Williams, Nicky Henderson and Stan Moore. Ms Sheasby has previously had horses in training with David Arbuthnot, Jamie Osborne and Nigel Twiston-Davies. She was part-owner of the 2010 Cheltenham Gold Cup Winner Imperial Commander.
