SUMBE to sponsor Prix Morny

Sumbe will be the new sponsor of the Prix Morny meeting at Deauville as part of a five-year deal, it was announced on Tuesday. The G1 Sumbe Prix Morny is the highlight of the day's racing on Sunday, August 20, with the supporting races on the card all carrying sponsorship by Nurlan Bizakov's operation.

"It is a real pleasure to announce that Sumbe is to sponsor the Prix Morny for the next five years, marking our first partnership with France Galop," said Bizakov, whose horses in training are led by his homebred Group 1 winner Belbek (Fr) (Showcasing {GB}).

"It is my first venture into sponsorship, and I am delighted to start with a stallion-making race as important as the Prix Morny. It takes place during the Deauville Barriere meeting, which attracts plenty of international attention. That fits in perfectly with our projects at Sumbe and will give us an opportunity to bring together our clients, partners, and friends from all over the world."

The Sumbe group is comprised of Haras de Monfort & PrJaux and Haras du MJzeray, based over 350 hectares between the French regions of Orne and Calvados, and Hesmonds Stud in England. The farms are home to 50 Sumbe broodmares and boarders. In France, Sumbe stands the stallions Mishriff (Ire), Golden Horde (Ire), De Treville (GB) and Recorder (GB).
