Ascot Racecourse is delighted to announce that BetMGM UK will be sponsoring the Clarence House Chase Raceday at Ascot on Saturday 20thTh January.

This includes major sponsorship of the day’s main competition, the £175,000 Grade 1 BetMGM Clarence House Chase. The prestigious race was won by some of the best two-mile chasers in recent history, including Altior, Un De Sceaux and Sprinter Sacre.

The anticipation for the race is increasing as top stars Jonbon and El Fabiolo will compete against Nicky Henderson and Willie Mullins. When the Clarence House Chase was last run at Ascot in 2022, we witnessed an epic duel between these two trainers as Shishkin defeated Energumene.

The total prize money on offer at the BetMGM Clarence House Chase Raceday in 2024 will be a record £415,000 across all seven races, 13% more than the £366,400 on offer in 2022 (2023 was abandoned). BetMGM will sponsor five other races on the card, including the £60,000 Grade 2 BetMGM Mares’ Hurdle (registered as The Warfield), which was won by the likes of Roksana, Magic Of Light and Vroum Vroum Mag.

The BetMGM Clarence House Chase has had its early entry requirements removed this season to make it easier to plan for connections. Entries will be made on Monday, 15thTh January.

BetMGM UK is a premium online betting and gaming brand operated by LeoVegas Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of global entertainment company MGM Resorts International. Their British racing sponsorship portfolio includes the all-weather championships and this new and growing relationship with Ascot, spearheaded by the prestige of the BetMGM Clarence House Chase, is in line with their ambitious growth plans for the UK in 2024.

Sam Behar, UK Director of BetMGM, said: “We are delighted to be working with Ascot on such a prestigious game. It is a proud moment for BetMGM to be the title sponsor of this major event in the racing calendar and further solidify our commitment to horse racing. Now we can’t wait to watch the action, hopefully with a fantastic fight between Jonbon and El Fabiolo!”

Felicity Barnard, Commercial Director and Deputy CEO of Ascot Racecourse, said: “We are delighted to welcome BetMGM on board as raceday sponsors at Ascot and look forward to working with them during the BetMGM Clarence House Chase Raceday.” We are delighted to be expanding this relationship with them and their support is vital to our success helping to achieve record-breaking prize money for the day. The BetMGM Clarence House Chase is always one of the highlights of the season and looks set to be another quality race in the race.”
