QuinnBet Grand National Trial prize fund increased to €100,000

The QuinnBet Grand National Trial will now carry a new increased prize fund of €100,000 ($108,176), with the race being promoted to listed status. 

It was in January 2023 when QuinnBet was announced as the sponsor for the Punchestown Grand National Trial, with the agreement in place for three years. 

This year’s QuinnBet Grand National Trial is one of the centre pieces of QuinnBet’s National Hunt sponsorship strategy in Ireland, taking place on 18 February and is the feature on a seven race card. 

QuinnBet Head of Sponsorship & Commercial, Niall McPartland, said: “QuinnBet is delighted to renew the sponsorship of the Grand National Trial Handicap Chase at Punchestown in 2024 and beyond! This is our second consecutive year to sponsor this race and we are very proud to continue our association with the home of Irish jumps and our sponsorship of Irish racing.  

“The Grand National Trial is considered a key stepping stone for Irish and UK Grand National contenders. The impressive prizepot of €100,Play Casino Online000 will attract a strong field for the 2024 QuinnBet Grand National and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank HRI for their support of the race and Punchestown sponsorship manager Leona Hughes and the team for their assistance in ensuring the success of showcasing our brand at this iconic venue.” 

Punchestown Sponsorship Manager, Leona Hughes, added: “It has been a pleasure to work alongside the QuinnBet team across this three-year deal. We are always aiming to improve and progress so the increased prize fund and promotion to listed category is great news and will go a long way to further enhance what is a feature handicap race on the Irish calendar.  

“We had a lovely crowd here for the 2023 renewal so hope to welcome the same again for an afternoon of quality racing with plenty of chase races on offer.” 

In other horseracing news last month, the Macau Horse Racing Company signed an agreement with the Macau Government to terminate the “Concession Contract for the Exclusion Operation of Horse Racing,” with the contract ending on 1 April 2024, at which point horseracing in Macau will no longer continue.
