Long Fence and Budweiser to be Presenting Sponsors at Charles Town Classic
Charles Town, WV - January 8, 2013 - Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races has announced that it signed Budweiser and Long® Fence to be presenting sponsors as part of the Charles Town Classic night of racing on April 20, 2013. Both the $85,000 Robert Hilton Memorial presented by Budweiser and $50,000 Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash presented by Long Fence will be a part of the all-stakes Pick 4 on Charles Town Classic day, with both races featuring a presenting sponsor for the first time.
The Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash has been contested on every Charles Town Classic undercard, while the Robert Hilton Memorial was inaugurated in 2012 and won by Flashy Dresser and jockey Julian Leparoux. Last year’s Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash was taken by track record holder Immortal Eyes and local rider Travis Dunkelberger.
While the Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash will mark Long® Fence’s initial foray into presenting sponsorship at Charles Town, the Robert Hilton will be Budweiser’s second go around, having been part of the West Virginia Breeders’ Classics between 1987 and 1993 as the title sponsor of the Budweiser Breeders’ Classic.
The Robert Hilton Memorial presented by Budweiser and Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash presented by Long Fence are just two of the six stakes races on the Charles Town Classic program, which culminates with the $1,500,000 Charles Town Classic (G2).
Post time for the first race of 13 on the Charles Town Classic card will be 5:00 pm EST.

Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser follows the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character. The brand celebrates great times and has used the phrase "Grab Some Buds" in advertising since 2010.
