Leading bookmaker Coral begins second year of FREE racing club

| 17.04.2014

The Coral Champions Club is Britain’s only bookmaker-run racing club where membership is completely free, giving customers a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience racehorse ownership and a share in the prize money dividends.

Along with the chance to become an owner for the day, the club gives members the opportunity to win VIP yard visits, free tickets to major meetings, exclusive price enhancements and free bets, along with weekly tips from Coral’s Head of Racing, James Knight.

The club have two new recruits in training, Al Jamal and Miss Laroc. Al Jamal, sired by Epsom Derby winner Authorized, is a 4-year-old filly, who has won two of her five starts. Miss Laroc is an unraced 2-year-old filly, who is progressing nicely under the watchful eye of Jeremy Gask.

Nicola McGeady, Coral PR Manager, said:  “The first year of the Coral Champions Club was a real hit with our customers, with over 6,000 people joining, and both horses – Never A Quarrel and Crew Cut- winning races, and following some extremely positive feedback from those involved, we are delighted to extend the club into a second season.”

James Knight, Coral Head of Racing, said:“Al Jamal has plenty of ability and is still relatively unexposed so we are very hopeful that she might be able to compete at some of the big summer meetings.  Miss Laroc could be anything at this stage and club members will be able to follow her progress as she nears her racecourse debut.”
