Coral extends Scottish Grand National deal

Betting company Coral has extended its title sponsorship of the annual Scottish Grand National horse race.

The deal will run for five years from 2015 to 2019, with Coral having sponsored the race since 2007.

The Scottish Grand National, which is a Grade 3 National Hunt steeplechase, is run at Ayr Racecourse each April with a purse of £210,000 (€265,000/$330,000) in 2014.

Coral’s PR director Simon Clare said: “The Coral Scottish Grand National is now one of the most watched and most bet on horse races in Great Britain and the race continues to go from strength to strength.

“We have forged a strong and dynamic partnership with Ayr, who are a brilliant racecourse to work with, and are committed to taking this fantastic event to new heights in the years to come.”
