JUDDMONTE CHEVELEY PARK STAKES
In 2017 Juddmonte announced a new sponsorship of the Gr.1 Cheveley Park Stakes, with the inauguration of ‘Juddmonte Day’ at Newmarket in September.
The seven–race card commenced with the back-to-back running of three of Britain’s most prestigious juvenile events – the Gr.2 Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes, the Gr.1 Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes and the Gr.1 Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes. The three races were worth a combined total of £500,000 in 2017, rising to £675,000 in 2018 - a near 50% increase in prize money from 2016.
Douglas Erskine Crum, CEO Juddmonte Group, said: “Juddmonte is delighted to renew its close partnership with Newmarket Racecourse with sponsorship of three highly prestigious two-year-old races. Prize money is an extremely important part of any sponsorship deal with which we are involved, and therefore the increase of nearly 50% for those three races is particularly welcome.”
Juddmonte has won the race twice, with Prophecy in 1993 and Special Duty in 2009.
