The betting company will sponsor 13 races over two days at the meet during the final weekend of November, including the prestigious Hennessy Gold Cup – which was called the Ladbrokes Trophy in recent years.

Coral PR Director, Simon Clare, said of Coral’s latest sponsorship deal: “We are delighted that Coral is to become the official title sponsor of the Coral Gold Cup Meeting, which is one of the most prestigious and anticipated events this side of Christmas and signals the start of the Festive season.

“Coral is the most committed, long-standing sponsor in British racing and in launching this exciting new partnership with Newbury Racecourse, we are strengthening our association with the sport through a race and race meeting which is steeped in history.

Meanwhile, Julian Thick, Chief Executive of Newbury Racecourse, added: “This is an exciting multi-year partnership for Newbury with Coral, a long-established and respected name in the horseracing world.

“We have enjoyed a great relationship with the Entain team for the last five years and look forward to working with them on the next phase of this partnership to make the Coral Gold Cup Meeting bigger and better over the coming years.”

Coral’s latest agreement sees it come off the back of a string of new sponsorship deals it has made in recent months, with the Coral Welsh Grand National, the Coal-Eclipse and the Coral Scottish Grand National all coming under the Coral brand.
