Sporting Index secures National Hunt sponsorship with Barry Geraghty

Ahead of the winter National Hunt season, Irish Champion jump jockey Barry Geraghty is set to be sponsored by Sporting Index.

As part of the sponsorship deal, Geraghty will wear the Sporting Index logo on his breeches and collar, in addition to providing exclusive insight in a regular column on the sporting index website. This is due to be supported with social media posts and daily previews during the season’s major meetings.

Barry Geraghty, praised the new partnership: “I’m thrilled to be working with Sporting Index. Chepstow is the start of what promises to be another exciting National Hunt season and I look forward to sharing my views in a regular column on the Sporting Index website.

“There are plenty of horses that I’m really excited to be getting on board this season and hopefully I can have my fair share of winners.”

Geraghty has been dubbed as one of the most successful jockeys at the Cheltenham Festival with 38 winners, second only to Ruby Walsh. Alongside his Cheltenham success, Geraghty has a Grand National win under his belt, and is the retained rider for National Hunt racing’s most successful owner, J P McManus.

Simon Trim, CEO at Sporting Index, added: “Barry has achieved a huge amount in his illustrious career in the saddle, and we are very excited to be his sponsor for the upcoming season. He looks to have some fantastic yards and horses behind him, so let’s hope for a successful campaign!”
