The Jockey Club racecourse has agreed a deal with leading property law firm Feldon Dunsmore which will see the Coventry company be a major sponsor at Warwick’s final May fixture for the next five years.
The fixture is part of Warwick Racecourse’s May Racing Carnival and will see the company put its name to the Feldon Dunsmore Building Legal Solutions’ Handicap Hurdle at the Proudly Warwick Raceday on 25 May, 2017.
The firm has sponsored races at Warwick Racecourse over the last two years and the long-term agreement also includes Feldon Dunsmore contributing a perpetual trophy to be presented to the winning horse owner of its sponsored race.
Feldon Dunsmore was established three years ago by former colleagues Paul Harrison and Steven Petty to assist businesses and individuals in a range of commercial property deals.
The firm has undergone a series of expansions since launching, growth which has given the owners the confidence to commit to the five-year deal.
Paul, co-founder of Feldon Dunsmore, said: “We’re delighted to have agreed a long-term deal with Warwick Racecourse and excited to put Feldon Dunsmore’s name to this race for the next five years.
“Steven and myself are both passionate about the racing industry and have been horse owners as part of a syndicate in the past.
“We’ve enjoyed building strong links with Warwick Racecourse over the last two years and we look forward to strengthening the relationship with our local racecourse over the course of this deal.”
Warwick Racecourse’s ambition to be regarded as one of the best small jumps courses in the country is gathering momentum – with attendances on the up and links with the local community strengthening.
Andre Klein, general manager at Warwick Racecourse, said: “Building strong relationships with the local business community is a key priority for us and can only help to raise the profile of Warwick further.
“We’re delighted Feldon Dunsmore has shown its faith in the work we are doing to establish Warwick as one of the top small jumps courses in the country and we look forward to having them with us at the second May Racing Carnival and the years to follow.”
