Chris Hughes on Battle Of Ideas

Chris Hughes becomes Club Ambassador

November 15, 2018 News

The Coral Champions Club is delighted to announce that it has signed up TV personality Chris Hughes as its official ambassador.

The reality TV star and lifelong horse racing fan worked with Coral earlier this year, culminating in his participation as a jockey in a charity race at York in June, and he has today joined forces with us once again to promote the Coral Champions Club over the next six months of the Jump racing season.

In his ambassador role, Chris Hughes, who finished fifth in the Macmillan-organised race in June, will make personal appearances when the Coral Champions Club racehorses run, will ride the Club’s racehorses on the gallops each month and report on their progress, as well as regularly sharing his thoughts on the Club and the big races across his social media channels.

Chris will be attending Chepstow racecourse next Wednesday 21st November when Battle Of Ideas makes his next appearance, and will spend time with the four Club members (and their guests) that win the opportunity to experience being an owner of the horse for the day.

Chris Hughes said of the partnership in today’s press release: “I’m really excited to be back in the saddle and working with Coral. I’m not going to lie, I’m glad I’m not having to train three days a week this time, but I’m delighted to be back on the horse-racing scene. I love horse racing, and especially riding racehorses, and we are going to have a lot of fun with the Coral Champions Club members over the next few months”

Coral PR Director Simon Clare said: “The Coral Champions Club was created six years ago and has gone from strength to strength ever since. We now have thousands of members, and three racehorses with three fantastic racehorse trainers in Colin Tizzard, Jonjo O’Neill and Tim Vaughan, and this partnership with Chris Hughes will help us to promote the Coral Champions Club to a brand new audience. Chris is not only a lifelong racing fan with a huge passion for the sport, he is also a very capable horseman, and we are delighted to be working with him once again.”
