Renewed Ayr Racecourse Deal - 1 Year

December 2014

QTS LADIES NIGHT

The QTS Group and Ayr Racecourse have announced exciting new sponsorship plans for 2015 that include boosting prize-money for the QTS Scottish Champion Hurdle to a massive £100,000.

This is a rise of £30,000, more than a 40% increase from this year and sees the race, the main supporting event on Coral Scottish Grand National Day on Saturday April 18,  become one of the top five two mile handicap hurdles in British racing.

The cash injection is certain to see the Grade 2 race attract even more high quality entries from both the UK and Ireland. Screened live on Channel 4, QTS first sponsored the Scottish Champion Hurdle in 2012.

The new sponsorship agreement also includes the Drumclog based company's continued support of the popular QTS Ladies Night on Saturday August 8 when it will sponsor a total of four races and the night itself.

David Brown, Managing Director of Ayr Racecourse said: "QTS, in recent years, have been one of our most loyal supporters and we are delighted to be associated with such a successful company.  Their increased sponsorship enables us to enhance the prize-money of the QTS Scottish Champion Hurdle to £100,000 which is a significant rise and in keeping with the status of the race.

"QTS Ladies Night is firmly established as one of our most successful and eagerly anticipated meetings and to have a sponsor of this calibre backing the evening only adds to its prestige."

Alan McLeish, Managing Director of QTS, said: "Founded in 1992, originally as a tree surgeon business, QTS now provides an extensive range of engineering infrastructure and training services to major organisations across the rail, utilities, construction and public sectors.

The group is also one of the UK's largest providers of rail operations, working very closely with Network Rail and other major suppliers. With various engineering and infrastructure contracts, as well as providing market leading training courses, the company is a one stop shop for most business needs."
