Capel Cure Sharp…

Capel Cure Sharp, the private-client inv^_est^_ment management company, is

putting its money on horse racing by sponsoring
a series of flat races

for two-year-olds.

Its 150,000-a-year stake will sup^_port seven races. The initiative is

called the Capel Cure Sharp 2YO Bonus Series.

CCS initially entered the racing field when it sponsored a group of

National Hunt races earlier this year called the Capel Cure Sharp Sup^_reme

Novices Series. The flat races will begin at Salisbury on May 18 and will

include races at Lei^_cester, Goodwood, Ches^_ter, Musselburgh and Ayr.

The grand finale will be the BBC-televi^_sed final at New^_bury on October

21. If the same horse wins two of the first six races and the final, a

bonus will be offered to the owner and trainer.

Racecourse Association chairman Angus Crichton-Miller says “Capel Cure

Sharp is precisely the type of company that racing needs – a prestigious,

high-quality, professional sponsor.

“We know that it will be fully supporting its commitment and are pleased

that it has extended its association with racing in this way.”
