Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races has landed two presenting sponsors for stakes scheduled for April 20, when the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic (gr. II) will be run.
The races and sponsors are the $85,000 Robert Hilton Memorial Presented by Budweiser and the $50,000 Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash Presented by Long Fence.
The Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash has been contested on every Charles Town Classic undercard, while the Robert Hilton Memorial was inaugurated in 2012. While the Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash will mark Long Fence's first presenting sponsorship at Charles Town, the Robert Hilton will be Budweiser's second.
Budweiser was the title sponsor of the West Virginia Breeders' Classic for state-bred runners from 1987-93. The other Classics night races usually have sponsors as well.
There will be six stakes on the 13-race Charles Town Classic program, which gets under way at 5 p.m. EDT.
