Betway extends backing of All-Weather Championships

Online bookmaker Betway has renewed its sponsorship of horse-racing’s All-Weather Championships.

The new three-season deal has been signed during the final year of Betway’s current three-year deal.

Betway will continue to sponsor the Middle Distance, Marathon and Sprint categories of the UK’s all-weather flat season. The company will benefit from significant on-course branding as part of the deal.

The deal covers races such as the £1m (€1.2m/$1.3m) Finals Day on Good Friday, which includes the £200,000 Betway Easter Classic. The agreement also includes four listed contests across the all-weather season and the Group 3 Betway Winter Derby.
