William Hill to open betting facilities on all Scottish Racecourses
Scottish Racing is delighted to announce a partnership with William Hill which sees the bookmaker open betting facilities on racecourses in Scotland.
The on-course betting facilities at Ayr, Kelso, Hamilton Park, Musselburgh and Perth are to be operated by William Hill from Saturday 14th July, in time for Hamilton Park’s evening fixture that day, and is followed by racing at Perth on Sunday 15th and Ayr on Monday 16th.
This agreement between Scottish Racing and William Hill follows on from the long-term sponsorship of the Ayr Gold Cup, the Scottish Sprint Cup at Musselburgh and previous sponsorship of Hamilton Park’s Braveheart Night.
William Hill’s Divisional Director, Steven White, said: “We have a long and proud association with Racing in Scotland, which has gone from strength to strength in recent years. We are very excited about extending our presence to the on-course betting facilities across the country’s racecourses and are confident that this will be a long and successful partnership.”
Scottish Racing Manager, Delly Innes, said: “by partnering with William Hill, Scotland’s largest high-street bookmaker, we’re providing customers at all our racecourses with a complete betting experience. They can now enjoy the action on the track, whilst also being able to watch and bet on other race meetings and sports. William Hill’s facilities are well placed to meet all customers’ needs and thrive in the years ahead.”
