Ian Renton, Managing Director of Cheltenham Racecourse, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Betway to Cheltenham as the sponsor of the Queen Mother Champion Chase for the next three years.
“This is Betway’s first venture into race sponsorship and it is great news that they have chosen to work with us at Cheltenham on such a high-profile race as the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.
“I’m sure Betway will really enjoy the experience, as well as find it hugely rewarding in regards to brand exposure.”
Bob Dutnall, Executive Director at Betway, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring a race as prestigious as the Queen Mother Champion Chase and are proud to commit for a minimum of three years.
