In what is yet another major boon for the NSW greyhound industry, the Richmond Race Club today announced that wagering giant Ladbrokes has agreed to a new sponsorship deal which sees them assume the naming rights to both the hugely successful Richmond Riches Puppy Auction and also the associated Richmond Riches Race series.
Now recognised as the leading greyhound Puppy auction in Australia, Ladbrokes Chief Operating Officer, Brad Smyth, said that his company was proud to again cement their commitment to the greyhound industry.
“Ladbrokes is delighted to broaden our sponsorship deal with the Richmond Race Club to now include naming rights sponsorship of the Puppy Auction and also the Race Series for three years effective from 2017,” said Mr. Smyth
“You only have to look at the quality of greyhound which has progressed through the two Auction’s to date to understand that not only is it a nursery for future stars of the sport but it is the perfect avenue for participants to purchase the best-bred stock available.”
Graduates of the Richmond Riches Puppy Auctions include the 2016 and 2017 Richmond Riches winners, Thirty Talks and Mister Twister, who were both top lots at their respective Auctions and who have since gone on to win at the elite level by securing victory in races such as the G1 Brisbane Cup and G1 Peter Mosman Classic.
Richmond Race Club General Manager, Brad Adam, said his Club was ecstatic that Ladbrokes had agreed to the sponsorship deal which further cements the future of the Auction.
“Everyone in the industry is aware that the breeding sector took a massive hit throughout 2016 and 2017 with the failed ban by the Baird government and that numbers will be down for this year’s Auction, but figures supplied to us already indicate that breeding is on the rise again,” said Mr. Adam.
“The ongoing financial support that Ladbrokes provide to not only the Richmond Race Club but to so many other Race Clubs around Australia is nothing short of sensational and the future of the Auction and the Race series is now secure for at least another three years.”
Ladbrokes greyhound racing sponsorship now extends to venues and events such as Wentworth Park, Ladbrokes Park Lismore, Bulli, Bathurst, Gosford, Ladbrokes Gardens, Richmond, Nowra, Grafton as well as annual carnivals at Moree, Wauchope and Coonamble, and Brad Smyth said this will continue in the future.
“We continue to invest in the greyhound racing industry because quite simply, we believe it has a massive future not just in terms of wagering but also as a major racing industry that provides significant enjoyment to thousands of participants,” said Smyth.
“Our investment not only includes sponsorship of Clubs and events but also extends to securing the services of Mark Duclos who provides more than 150 Video Race Previews each week for punters through the Ladbrokes App and digital website, and I can assure you, we have some even bigger plans for the future which will be announced shortly.”
The 2017 Ladbrokes Richmond Riches Puppy Auction will be staged on Sunday, November 26, with the first lot set to go under the gavel at 10am and some of the stock that will be offered for sale are from the leading Sire and dam lines in Australia.
“We are in the process of finalising the catalogue for this years’ Auction at the moment but I can announce that it includes pups out of top class brood bitches such as; Clockwise; Ready To Riot; Clay Model; Little Charlie; Avondale Porche; Exhibitionist; and Punch One Out and we confidently predict that the Auction tradition of producing Group 1 winners will continue,” said Brad Adam.
All details for the 2017 Ladbrokes Richmond Riches Puppy Auction will appear on their dedicated website – www.richmondpuppyauction.com.au - but one thing is for certain, whichever puppy assumes the title of the ‘top lot’ at this years’ Auction will have plenty of expectations placed on its shoulders.
