Close Brothers and Horse Racing

Through our partnership with The Jockey Club, Close Brothers is a proud supporter of British horse racing.

Close Brothers is proud to support British horse racing

At Close Brothers, we believe in hard work, determination, teamwork and resilience, and these values are at the heart of our people and our business.
It’s these values that have drawn us to the world of horse racing – a world where success comes from following these same principles.

That is why we are proud to partner with The Jockey Club, founded in 1750 and the owners and operators of 15 of the country’s most iconic racecourses.

Horse racing is great entertainment and attracts a broad audience from all demographics, and just as we have clients all around the country from SME manufacturers to some of the wealthiest in the land, it’s a great fit for Close Brothers.

From The Grand National and The Cheltenham Festival, to The Guineas and The Derby, The Jockey Club is part of the fabric of British racing.
In addition to the 2 million people who attend The Jockey Club races in person across the country, these prestigious events generate a TV audience of 30 million a year, with The Grand National alone being watched by 9 million TV viewers.
