Lion has announced that it will be a naming sponsor on The Kosciuszko horse race, the world’s richest country race and which will take place on Everest Day at Royal Randwick this October.
The new $1.3m race will be restricted to NSW country-trained horses and will take place on the biggest day of racing in Australia, with more than $16m of prizemoney on offer, and James Brindley, Managing Director of Lion Beer Australia, said Lion was proud to be associated with the Kosciuszko Race.
“Lion has a long association with racing in Australia, and our support for The Kosciuszko will continue this great tradition,” he said.
“We are particularly proud to be supporting country racing and country pubs, which are both integral to communities across regional and rural New South Wales.
“It is fitting that the race and the beer are both named after Australia’s highest peak – perfect to showcase the pinnacle of country racing and the very best in brewing.”
