Online Casino 32Red Donates to Injured Jockeys Fund

Published Saturday, May 16, 2009 -

Multiple Best Online Casino award winner announced today that they will celebrate Ryan Moore's 32nd win in the Flat Jockey Championships with a £1,000 donation to the Injured Jockeys Fund.

32Red Chief Executive Officer, Ed Ware commented, "32Red Online Casino is delighted to be the first sponsors of this prestigious racing accolade and it's with pleasure that today we announce a £1,000 donation to the Injured Jockeys Foundation on behalf of Ryan Moore to mark his 32nd win in the Flat Jockeys Championships. We look forward to the remainder of the flat season and wish the best of luck to all jockeys."

Championship leader, Ryan Moore said, "I'm delighted to reach 32 winners so quickly in the season. Its fantastic news that 32Red are donating to the IJF, which is obviously a cause close to my heart. I'll be trying my utmost to be Champion again this season and I'm currently on course to achieve it."

The Flat Jockey Championship 2009 is a competition won by the flat jockey who achieves the most winning rides on flat and all-weather race courses from 22 March to 08 November, 2009. Last year's champion was Ryan Moore, who managed to ride 186 winners in the 2008 flat season.

Professional Jockeys Association, CEO, Josh Apiafi, stated, "The Flat Championship promises to be very exciting this year with the title being very open and within the reach of several of our leading Flat Jockeys."

Ryan was the favourite as the stalls opened in March and with his win rate he will be hard to beat. The feature meetings at Epsom, Ascot and Goodwood could change things. With many races still to be run it would only take a winning streak from one of the other worthy contenders to make the finishing results look different.

Mark Quayle, Head of Marketing for 32Red Online Casino said, "The development of 32Red's association with British horseracing has been cemented over the years by a number of race sponsorships, including the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes last season at Newmarket. The Flat Jockey Championships reaffirms this and we are proud that we can associate the best in racing with the best in gaming following our successful retention of the Best Casino award this year."
