Gold Cup Day

15 March

THE CREATION OF a legend

the magners cheltenham gold cup

 

Day Four: Gold Cup Day, the pinnacle of Jump racing and a date for any sports fan's diary. 

 

Legends are created as the racing world stops to witness sporting excellence as the best Jump horses in the world take to the stage at the Home of Jump racing. 

 

The 2018 renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup was won in fine style by the Colin Tizzard-trained Native River, ridden by Richard Johnson in a thrilling race fending off the challenge from Might Bite, trained by Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson.

 

The final day of The Festival™ presented by Magners promises the ultimate experience for all as the crowds rejoice for elite sporting champions and victory celebrations continue into the evening with top-class entertainment in our Final Flight* bar with live music from The Chip Shop Boys or dance the night away in The Centaur** with Tommy and The Fuse. 

 

Purchase your tickets before 10:59am on 28 January to take advantage of the best rates.

 

 

*Final Flight ticket needed in conjunction with a Club enclosure ticket.
