the april meeting
wednesday 15th & thursday 16th april 2020
Join us for two days of racing as racing returns to Cheltenham Racecourse after The Cheltenham Festival.
It's no easy task following The Festival™ presented by Magners. But April’s two-day meeting is the perfect time to reflect on achievements past and remember that racing, no matter the event, is competitive and above all else, a joyous occasion.
For the final chance to watch the professionals test themselves on the track before the summer break, head to Cheltenham on April 15th and 16th 2020.
What happened on The April Meeting Wednesday?
Mister Whitaker for trainer Mick Channon and jockey Jonathan Burke gave a gutsy performance to hold off the challenge from Got Away in the feature race of the day The Cure Parkinson’s & Hambo Foundation Silver Trophy Chase.
What happened on The April Meeting Thursday?
On the penultimate raceday of the season here at Cheltenham Racecourse, we saw Kupatana take the EBF/Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association Mares’ Novices’ Handicap Chase Series Final for Harry Cobden and Paul Nicholls, giving Paul his 3,000th UK Jumps winner.
