SIS (Sports Information Services) has agreed to become the sponsor of the Gran Premio José Pedro Ramírez horse race in Uruguay.
Taking place on January 6 at the Hipodromo Nacional de Maroñas racetrack in Montevideo, SIS will sponsor the undercard Gran Premio Maroñas (URU G2) race, as well as Gran Premio General Artigas and Gran Premio Anniversary race days, building upon its existing global pictures and data distributor partnership at the racetrack.
“We have a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Codere and Hipodromo Nacional de Maroñas racetrack,” commented Michele Fischer, Vice President of SIS Content Services.
“It is fantastic to have the opportunity to sponsor a race on the most important racing day in Uruguay. This sponsorship shows that we are keen to support our valued partner, within a region that continues to be important for SIS.”
SIS has similar racing deals across Latin America, as it sponsors the Argentine Derby, Gran Premio Nacional, at Hipodromo Palermo. The company delivers more than 30,000 live horse racing events each year, including premium races from Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay.
“We have enjoyed a successful partnership with SIS at all of our tracks and it’s great to have extended that alliance with a sponsorship on our prized Gran Premio José Pedro Ramírez day,” added Ramon Rionda, Vice President of Racing at Codere.
“Partnering with SIS enables us to share this historic race day with racing fans all over the world.”
