Newsells to sponsor at Newmarket

05/04/2011

Newsells Park Stud is delighted to announce that the stud will be sponsoring the Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse on Saturday 16th July, on the July Course.

The mile and a half Listed race for fillies and mares has been won by a clutch of high-class performers in recent seasons and is an attractive high-summer target for middle-distance types.

Dar Re Mi is the most high-profile winner of the race in recent seasons ñ she triumphed in 2008 before going on to score in Group 1 company in the Dubai Sheema Classic.  The race's roll of honour has subsequently been graced by Barshiba (2009) and Eastern Aria, both of whom recorded victories at Group 2 level.

The Newsells Park Stud Stakes is the feature race on the card on 16th July and carries a prize fund of £35,000.

Newsells Park Stud's general manager, Julian Dollar said:  "We place great value on our own horses achieving Stakes success, so are delighted to be sponsoring and supporting this important race for fillies and mares."

Newmarket Racecourses' managing director Stephen Wallis said: "We are very pleased that Newsells Park Stud has chosen to sponsor this year's renewal of the Aphrodite Stakes.

"The race carries significant importance for owners and breeders with the black type that it offers and it is appropriate that an increasingly influential stud has chosen to link with it.

"We hope that the association will be a long-term one and look forward to welcoming Newsells Park Stud to the July Course for one of our ever-popular Summer Saturdays."
