Leopardstown in sponsor deal

LEOPARDSTOWN have received another shot in the arm with confirmation that Boylesports have signed a three-year sponsorship deal with the Foxrock track for their big meeting on January 28.

A €100,000 bonus is on offer to any horse winning the Hurdle (run last year as the MCR Hurdle) and following up at Cheltenham in March. In addition, a €50,000 bonus is on offer for any horse winning the Grade Two novice chase on the card and at the Festival.

Meanwhile, Quito De La Roque and Jessica Harrington's Bostons Angel could be heading to Sandown on Friday after both were among the 10 horses entered for the Listed Future Stars Chase.

The Colm Murphy-trained Quito De La Roque recorded his fifth successive win in the Chase at Down Royal and is now as low as 12/1 with some bookmakers for next year's Cheltenham Gold Cup.
