Since the entry of Unibet on the UK market in 2013, today the company reaches a “landmark” moment with its 1000th horse racing sponsorship. The online operator reaches the 1000 race landmark by sponsoring both the Grade 1 Unibet Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown and the Grade 3 Unibet Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham today. Furthermore, today Unibet sponsors a new Grade 2 hurdle at Punchestown to complement its “Unibet Morgiana sponsorship on the same day, entitled Unibet 1000th Race Celebration“.

The first event in the UK that Unibet sponsored seven years ago was a race at Chepstow when a horse called Dubawi Island won the “Unibet Offering 5 Places in National novices” hurdle. Since its market entry in 2013, more than 9,000 runners have raced in the 1,000 races sponsored by Unibet.

Ed Nicholson, Head of Kindred Racing Sponsorship and Communications shared his excitement in an interview for SBC News by saying: “Since Unibet’s UK launch in 2013, the Unibet brand alone has now sponsored in excess of 1000 horse races, a figure which rises to close on 2,500 for the Kindred Group in its entirety when you add in Stan James and 32Red sponsored events from the dates we acquired them in July 2015 and February 2017 respectively.
