The Cheltenham Festival

Thank you for joining us for what was an extraordinary day at the races. The famous Cheltenham roar echoed around the racecourse to mark the start of four days of world class Jump racing. 

 

We kick-started Day One of The Festival™ presented by Magners with seven spectacular races, including The Unibet Champion Hurdle. Nicky Henderson extended his exceptional record to claim it for the eighth time with Epatante. This formidable pairing saw Barry Geraghty achieve a fourth, record-equalling, success in the race. 

 

The Festival™ presented by Magners 2021 will run from 16 - 19 March. Official tickets will go on sale in due course, please follow our social channels or sign up to our newsletter for updates.
