(PRWEB) October 3, 2008
32Red Online Casino has announced details of their sponsorship of the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse on 3 October.
The six-furlong Group One for two-year-old fillies is sure to be one of the features of the 2008 autumn season at Newmarket and is titled the 32Red.com Cheveley Park Stakes. It is a race with a tremendous history - not least in recent years - and with this year's renewal prize fund of £170,000 it should encourage a number of the sport's best two-year-old fillies to the race.
The race is part of the autumn season of races at the historic Newmarket course, with nine race days in total making up this year's season. The Cheveley Park Stakes was first run more than a century ago in 1899 and is the fillies' equivalent of the Middle Park Stakes. The winner is usually prominent in the ante-post betting for the following season's 1,000 Guineas and a host of top class horses have emerged victorious and defined careers in recent years.
Last season saw subsequent 1000 Guineas winner Natagora lead home Fleeting Spirit in a particularly strong running of the contest, while this time around, Flying Childers winner Madame Trop Vite, Queen Mary Stakes scorer Langs Lash and Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes winner Please Sing are in line to present a stiff domestic challenge.
Ed Ware of 32Red (http://www.32red.com/ ) said: "The 32Red.com Cheveley Park Stakes is our first Group One-sponsored race and we are very proud to be associated with a race of this quality."
"We believe our partnership with Newmarket serves to strengthen the 32Red brand and increases our profile with a significant target audience. We look forward to a competitive and informative 32Red.com Cheveley Park Stakes."
