Fairyhouse Sponsors Nina Carberry
Wednesday, 9 November 2011
Fairyhouse Racecourse today announced sponsorship of Ladbrokes Irish Grand National-winning jockey, Nina Carberry. The 12-month deal will see Nina wearing Fairyhouse branded racing clothes in both Ireland and the UK. Nina will also work with the racecourse to promote race meetings throughout the year.
Peter Roe, General Manager Fairyhouse Racecourse commented: “We are thrilled to announce our sponsorship of Nina Carberry. Nina has always been a supporter of Fairyhouse and is a wonderful ambassador for racing. She is a well-known figure in the world of sport and is really enthusiastic about her association with her local racecourse. Nina will be involved in our marketing and PR campaigns including social networking, helping to promote our feature meetings starting with our Premier Jump Racing Weekend on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December. We have also commissioned a cartoon caricature of Nina which hopefully will appeal to the younger audience and help attract some new fans to the sport.”
Nina Carberry commented: “I am honoured to be sponsored by Fairyhouse Racecourse. I have been coming to Fairyhouse since I was a child. It is my local track and the scene of many happy celebrations for me and my family. Winning the Ladbrokes Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse last April was the highlight of my career. This is a fantastic sponsorship and I am really looking forward to working with the team at Fairyhouse to promote the racecourse and their top-class race meetings.”
