Coral is one of the widely recognised names in the betting world and since Joe Coral began his bookmaking business in 1926 the brand has grown signficantly.

With an employee list of over 11,000, Coral were the first company to open an off-course bookmaker and in 1961 they set the whole new trend for gambling.

Having now ventured into the online sphere as well Coral have enhanced their business through the world wide web and this has allowed them to pump more money back into horse racing and they now sponsor some of the top races.

A big supporter of both flat and national hunt racing, Coral sponsor Group One contests like the Eclipse Stakes, whilst they are regualr sponsors of big races during the Epsom Derby festival.  Another trademark sponsorship deal is with the Welsh National at Chepstow, which they have sponsored for decades.
