Cheltenham Festival Guide

The Cheltenham Festival is the pinnacle of the National Hunt season and takes place at Prestbury Park racecourse in Cheltenham during mid-March each year. In 2005 the festival was extended to four days of Horse Racing Betting which added a further six races to the programme.

The Festival has become so popular tickets are sold out well in advance, both in the UK and in Ireland. There is plenty of interest from the Irish, who travel over the Irish Sea in their thousands year on year for what has become an annual pilgrimage.

Feature Races:

Gold Cup | Champion Hurdle | Queen Mother | Stayers' Hurdle
