Neptune Investment Management Announced as New Sponsor at The Festival 11/12/09

Cheltenham Racecourse today announced that Neptune Investment Management is to extend its sponsorship portfolio at the home of Jump racing to include two further races, most notably The Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle, the Grade One two mile, five furlong, Novice Hurdle Championship at The Festival.

This historic event, which takes place on the second day of the famous four-day meeting, Wednesday, March 17, 2010, has been won in the past by many of Jump racing’s brightest stars, including Istabraq, Hardy Eustace and Ten Plus.

The company is also backing The Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle, a Grade Two event on Festival Trials Day (registered as the Classic), which takes place this season on Saturday, January 30, 2010.

Today marks the first day of horse racing sponsorship for the company, with their backing of the £50,000 Listed Neptune Investment Management Handicap Chase at Cheltenham, won last year by subsequent Grand National hero Mon Mome.

Georgina Pardoe, Marketing Director at Neptune Investment Management, said: “We are delighted to extend our support of Jump racing at Cheltenham and naturally are thrilled to be backing a historic race at The Festival. Whilst a relatively young company, we have grown significantly every year since launch in 2002, not only in terms of the amount of assets we now manage for our clients but also the recognition we now have across the fund management industry. Our dynamism and professionalism is a perfect match for all that Cheltenham has come to represent in the minds of sport and racing fans alike.”

Neptune is as an independent and privately owned investment management company, built upon principles of teamwork and partnership. It is a multi-award winning company, focused on delivering outperformance over the long-term for investors and their investments, be that ISAs, pensions or other equity-based portfolios.

Peter McNeile, Director of Sponsorship, commented: “We are extremely pleased that Neptune Investment Management is to broaden its sponsorship here so quickly, in the process becoming a significant supporter of Jump racing. With three races here in December, January and of course at The Festival in March, I’m sure that Neptune Investment Management will bring its own fresh approach to horseracing and quickly become a well known name to followers of this great sport.”
