Tabcorp, Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria’s principal sponsor, has further demonstrated its dedication to thoroughbred racing and breeding by extending its partnership with Inglis for a further two years.
The renewed agreement between Inglis and Tabcorp’s wagering arm, TAB, takes the formal relationship between the pair to eleven years.
Tabcorp’s Managing Director of Wagering and Media Adam Rytenskild said he was thrilled with the ongoing partnership.
“Tabcorp is the biggest supporter of thoroughbred racing in Australia. Our businesses return $1 billion to the racing industry each year and our partnership with Inglis is yet another demonstration of our commitment to Australian racing,’’ he said.
“We look forward to introducing our punters and partners to the world class Inglis Riverside Stables development and (newly renovated) Oaklands Junction in Melbourne. Our Sky Racing broadcasts and our wagering services will help support Inglis buyers, breeders and trainers.
“Our renewed partnership will also support the Inglis race series and the inaugural $4 million Inglis race day at Warwick Farm in February 2019 – a great prelude to the Golden Slipper Carnival and The Championships.’’
Inglis’ Managing Director Mark Webster described the deal as exciting and reassuring.
“It makes sense. It’s as simple as that,’’ he said.
“We are the market leader in our field and have been for a long time. And TAB is market leader in its field and has been for a long time.
“We have had a fantastic relationship with the TAB team for more than a decade and I’m thrilled we have been able to come to terms to extend that again.”
With Inglis having moved into the new Riverside sales complex in Sydney earlier this year, a major renovation of Melbourne’s Oaklands Junction complex is now in full swing.
The works are expected to be completed for the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale in March.
