Chelthenham Festival featuring the Gold Cup
Champion Day, Ladies day, St. Patricks Thursday and Cheltenham Gold Cup day make this a 4 day action packed event between 13th – 16th March 2012.
Kicking off the festival on Tuesday and signalling that racing’s favourite is back after 12 months is The Stan James Champion Hurdle, the most important hurdle race of the season. With six other races and the unique first day atmosphere make this one of the most eagerly awaited race days of the year.
Wednesday marks Ladies Day, with an opportunity to have some fun with Ladies Day fashion awards although the real action is on the track, with an awesome seven race card featuring the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
An opportunity to celebrate St Patricks Day a little earlier, with an Irish flavour guaranteed at the racecourse. With plenty of competitive racing as well as the charity race taking place for Cancer Research UK plus lots of Irish-style entertainment.
On the final day besides six other great races is the climax of the entire Jump racing season and the highlight of the best day’s racing of the year, with undoubtedly an atmosphere to match is The Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup.
