Randox have extended their long-term partnership with the Grand National horse race for another five years, making it the second-partnership in the history of the event.
It has been announced that global healthcare company Randox have reached an agreement with the commercial horse racing organisation, The Jockey Club, to extend it’s partnership for five more years. The deal will run from 2022 until 2026.
The deal will mean that Randox will have sponsored the Aintree Grand National from 2016 until 2026. The event has previously been called the Randox Health Grand National, but from 2021 will be known as just the Randox Grand National.
2020 proved to be a challenging year for everyone within the global healthcare industry due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. When the illness struck the UK, the company helped process around 150 COVID-19 tests per day, but through investments is now able to process 90,000 COVID-19 tests every day.
Founder and managing director of Randox, Dr Peter Fitzgerald CBE said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with The Jockey Club’s team at Aintree and look forward to another successful five years when we are once again able to come together to celebrate the Randox Grand National.”
“This terrible pandemic has increased understanding of the importance of diagnostics and testing across our society. As a company founded with the ultimate aim of saving lives, we will work hard to convert that better understanding into the improvement of people’s health in the future”.
