The jump season got underway at Chepstow racecourse on the 9th October with two exciting days of racing marking the season opener and a packed race card, as well as a packed crowd, featuring two top class races which we were proud to sponsor.
Our Managing Director Sarah-Jane Fedarb commented “It was lovely to see the stands packed with spectators again, what an atmosphere and a fabulous day of racing. The perfect way to kick start the jump season!”
Here at Champion we have been long-time supporters of the sport of racing. Our founding father John Ayres had the privilege and pleasure of owning many racehorses over his lifetime, and his love of point-to-pointing and National Hunt racing was well known to all who knew him.
Sarah-Jane continues “Sadly John passed away in 2013, however we are proud to continue his support of the sport. Champion products are still made a short distance from Chepstow in Cardiff and to see his legacy and memory live on in the riders wearing Champion safety helmets and body protectors is very fitting.”
