VoiceLadbrokes sign new five-year deal to back Winter Festival but Jockey Club’s plan to sell course for housing is unchangedThe King George VI Chase at Kempton Park, the highlight of the Christmas jumping programme, has a new sponsor after Ladbrokes agreed a five-year deal on Thursday to back the track’s two-day Winter Festival meeting. Hopes the deal could herald a more certain future for the course soon evaporated when the Jockey Club, which owns Kempton, confirmed its plans to sell the track for housing are unchanged.
Talking Horses: Kempton still for sale despite new sponsor for King George
The King George has been won by many of the sport’s most famous names, including Arkle, Desert Orchid, Wayward Lad and Kauto Star. This year’s race is the intended target for Nicky Henderson’s outstanding chaser Altior, who is unbeaten in 19 starts over jumps but has yet to race beyond two and a quarter miles.
