Vertem, the Newcastle based specialist stockbroker, has announced it will become the title sponsor of the Vertem Futurity Trophy, the final Group 1 of the British flat season.
This historically famous race, frequently won by future classic winners since 1961, represents the culmination of the season for many of Europe’s leading youngsters and is subsequently contested by the top trainers and their best two-year olds.
John Dance, Vertem CEO and racehorse owner (pictured with Laurens) has revealled that the sponsorship was all part of the strategy to increase awareness and recognition of the Vertem stockbroking name.
“Vertem Stockbrokers is all about building something for the future. In our business we aim to provide growth and protection to clients’ assets, and in terms of this sponsorship, not only are we supporting the future stars of the sport, but we are equally delighted to be helping Doncaster develop the future heritage of this historic race by reinstating ‘Futurity’ in its title. We believe this sponsorship, just like our investment aims, will deliver a high quality, long-term relationship with Doncaster and we look forward to a very exciting future working with them,” he said.
