Geoff King races on board

CLARENCE River Jockey Club has formed an alliance with Geoff King Volkswagen (Coffs Harbour) to sponsor this year's South Grafton Cup.

The $45,000 South Grafton Cup (1600m) is conducted on day two of the multi award-winning Grafton July Racing Carnival.

The sponsorship is initially for one year with extended options.

“We are very excited to have Geoff King Volkswagen as our South Grafton Cup sponsor,” CRJC chief executive Bradley de Martino Rosaroll said.

“It is fitting to have such a prestigious brand involved with the July Racing Carnival.

“The South Grafton Cup is very important in the fabric of the Carnival and continues the historical link to the South Grafton Jockey Club.”

Rosaroll added the club expects to announce as early as next week new sponsorship details for its flagship Carnival sprint, the $130,000 Ramornie.
