Matchbook team up with Towcester Racecourse to sponsor Maiden Derby

Matchbook Betting Exchange is delighted to announce that we have agreed on a deal to sponsor the upcoming Maiden Derby at the home of the English Greyhound Derby – Towcester Racecourse. The competition proved very popular last year and was won by the Patrick Janssen trained Thorn Falcon, who followed that success by being crowned the 2021 English Greyhound Derby Champion.

The Matchbook Betting Exchange Maiden Derby for 48 greyhounds over the 500m Derby trip will be run over four rounds starting on Sunday 10th April and then continuing on Sunday 17th April and Sunday 24th April, with the Final set for Sunday 1st May. Both SIS and RPGTV will cover all four rounds.

The Matchbook Maiden Derby at Towcester will be run over four Sundays beginning on the 10th of April. 

Matchbook’s Chief Marketing Officer Eric Hegarty said: “At Matchbook, we are delighted to partner with Towcester Racecourse as the title sponsor of the Maiden Derby. Last year’s competition was a terrific success, with Thorn Falcon’s subsequent win in the English Greyhound Derby highlighting the potential of this competition. Having the opportunity to showcase the Matchbook Brand and our Greyhound Betting Markets while supporting the Greyhound racing industry in the United Kingdom is one that we are incredibly excited about.”

Our Greyhound betting markets continue to be industry-leading, and we pride ourselves on offering competitive prices on each and every race. We urge anyone searching for value on their bets to check out

Nathan Corden of Towcester Racecourse said: “This is fantastic news for the competition and it follows on from Matchbook Betting Exchange’s commitment to sponsor the St Leger at Limerick later in the year. I’m sure there will be plenty of interest in the competition from both sides of the Irish Sea as it is a precursor for the English Greyhound Derby.
