Newbury Welcomes Return of Horseracing to Berkshire with Three-Day Restart Fixture

Monday 8 June – A finalised order of running, as well as sponsorship details for this week’s three-day restart fixture, has been announced today by Newbury Racecourse.

Newbury will host a season-opening three-day meeting, beginning on Thursday 11 June with an afternoon fixture shown on Racing TV, followed by an evening meeting on Friday 12 June which will be broadcast on ITV4, with coverage including the Group 1 Irish 2,000 Guineas from the Curragh and concluding with an afternoon meeting on Saturday 13 June which will also be covered by ITV4 and will include the transferred Group 3 Diomed Stakes from Epsom, plus Listed contests; the Maggie Dickson from Musselburgh and Newbury’s own Abingdon Stakes.  

Thanks to MansionBet who take title sponsorship across all three days, along with the European Breeders Fund (EBF) who have contributed to additional prizemoney.

Julian Thick, Chief Executive of Newbury Racecourse said: “We are delighted to be back racing here at Newbury this week and are incredibly grateful for the help and support we have received from stakeholders across the industry to get racing back in a safe environment. Key to the restart is the backing of our sponsors, and so we thank MansionBet and the European Breeders Fund for their support across the three days.

“While we cannot yet welcome any owners, we would like to thank them for their ongoing support of Newbury Racecourse and we hope it won’t be too long before we can open our doors to them and all our customers.

“Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure the racecourse is a safe place for all those involved in delivering the three days and the track is looking fantastic.”

Dana Bocker, Head of Integrated Marketing at MansionBet, commented: “Our commitment to horseracing is important to us and we are delighted to be supporting Newbury’s opening fixtures this weekend. We’re excited to see live horseracing back on our screens again and are looking forward to engaging with our customers over the weekend’s racing.”
