MoŽt to sponsor Newmarket festival

15 April, 2014

MoŽt & Chandon will be the title sponsor at Newmarket Racecourseís three-day July festival. ††

The Maison has a long tradition of supporting sporting events, having previously sponsored meetings at Epsom, Goodwood and Sandown, while tennis superstar Roger Federer is its brand ambassador.

Tens of thousands of visitors will don their finest dresses, suits and hats in a bid to win prizes in a ďFashion at the FestivalĒ promotion Ė and a glass of sparkling MoŽt will complete the look.

Amy Starkey, regional director at racecourse owner Jockey Club, said: ďTheir involvement will enhance the attraction of the highlight of the year on The July Course at Newmarket Racecourses Ė and we are delighted with the close historical link between the Maison and The Jockey Club.Ē

The Jockey Club was founded in 1750, the same year in which Claude MoŽt exported the first bottle of Champagne to Britain.
