Navan Racecourse Announce Four-Year Sponsorship of thetote.com Fortria Chase
Navan Racecourse today announced a new four year sponsorship agreement with Tote Ireland to sponsor one of its flagship chases, the Grade 2 ‘thetote.com Fortria Chase’, on Sunday November 8th.
Tote Ireland’s sponsorship of the race, named after Fortria, a successful Irish-trained chaser in the late 1950s and early 1960s, was announced at a media visit to Trainer Noel Meade’s Tu Va stables in County Meath this morning. Gathered media watched Noel work some of his leading horses, including Road To Riches, Apache Stronghold and Wounded Warrior and were addressed by Manager of Navan Racecourse, Peter Killeen and CEO of Tote Ireland, Tim Higgins.
Navan Racecourse Manager, Peter Killeen, said:
“I’m absolutely delighted for Navan that our Fortria Chase is being sponsored by Tote Ireland and that they recognise the benefit of sponsoring such a prestigious race that has thrown up winners such as Moscow Flyer, Big Zeb and Flemenstar to name a few. The four-year deal shows great commitment from Tote Ireland and I’m looking forward to working with Tim Higgins and his team to maximise the opportunities available through the sponsorship of what is one of the highlights of our racing calendar.”
To celebrate thetote.com Fortria Chase Day, Navan Racecourse and Tote Ireland will unveil new improved Tote customer facilities on November 8th which includes extensive refurbishment and re-modelling to offer customers a more comfortable Tote betting experience.”
Tote Ireland CEO, Tim Higgins, said:
“Tote Ireland continues to expand the number of races it sponsors each year and this year we are pleased to add Navan’s thetote.com Fortria chase to that list. This is a race which is all about quality and we have seen many great horses land the prestigious prize down the years. In addition to our sponsorship, we are looking forward to the opening of new Tote facilities for customers at Navan, which we have worked with Peter and his team to deliver. It all adds up to exciting times ahead at Navan Racecourse for Tote Ireland.”
