Lalor’s regular jockey is Stobart champion Richard Johnson, who is also an ambassador for Betway, while Harry Fry has also re-signed to be an ambassador for the firm for the 2018/19 National Hunt season.

Betway’s Alan Alger stated, “This partnership really goes back to Aintree in April when Lalor was a hugely emotional winner of the Betway Top Novices’ Hurdle.

Alger continued, “We could all see in the paddock how much that win meant to everyone involved, and racing as a whole. Kayley has had an incredibly difficult time over the past nine months and we were all in awe of her strength when being interviewed in the winners’ enclosure.

Alger finished, “We’re really excited to sponsor the yard and look forward to keeping everyone updated on Lalor’s progress, as well as the rest of her string. He’s a hugely exciting horse for the season and we hope to give a unique insight into the training of a top class novice chaser.”

Kayley Woollacott remarked, “We’re really grateful to Betway for sponsoring our yard. There’s a strong connection there after Lalor’s win at Aintree, which was obviously a very emotional day for all of us because Lalor always meant so much to Richard.”
