What's On

Fri 15 Dec 2017

The International - Friday

Featured Event

It's always a festive Friday at The International as racegoers are treated to the finale of the Crystal Cup. The race concludes a series of unique races across Europe which encapsulates and celebrates the rich heritage of the sport. The 2016 running saw Irish trainer Enda Bolger assert his authority over the race as Cantlow provided the trainer with his seventh success in the race.

Sat 16 Dec 2017

The International - Saturday

Featured Event

This Saturday fixture falls as Jump racing enters its prime time of year and The International Meeting offers two days of action to get you into the Christmas spirit.

The feature race of the fixture is the StanJames.com International Hurdle, won last year by crowd favourite and three-times winner The New One partnered by Champion Jockey Richard Johnson.

Mon 01 Jan 2018

New Year's Day

Featured Event

Celebrate the New Year in style! Whether it be with friends, family or colleagues, Cheltenham is the place to be on New Year’s Day. This hugely popular meeting takes place on a Bank Holiday – another perfect reason to come racing and round off the festive season!

Sat 27 Jan 2018

Festival Trials Day

Featured Event

The last Saturday in January provides racegoers with the chance to savour great racing action, as the momentum of the season builds towards The Festival™ in March. For the horses, this is their last race in their preparation for the big event, ensuring that all eight races provide hugely competitive action to enjoy. The highlight race is the BetBright Trial Chase.

Festival Trials Day will be tinged with memories, as in 2017, Thistlecrack had been beaten by the brave Many Clouds, a shock many did not see coming, but thoughts after the race were very much with Oliver Sherwood and all at his Rhonehurst yard after Many Clouds collapsed following his gallant effort.

Tue 13 Mar 2018

Champion Day

Featured Event

The first day of the Festival is many peoples favourite with four Grade 1 races and three highly competitive Handicaps for punters to sink their teeth into. The famous Festival roar will reverberate all around Cheltenham as the Supreme Novices Hurdle gets the meeting underway, which last year was won by 25/1 shot Labaik, who I'm sure you'll remember went on to make a name for himself at The Punchestown Festival went he refused to start. The standout race of the day is undoubtedly the Champion Hurdle over two miles which in 2017 saw Buveur D'air romp home by 4 1/2 lengths.

Wed 14 Mar 2018

Ladies Day

Featured Event

Wednesday at The Cheltenham Festival is Ladies Day, giving racegoers the opportunity to enjoy the very best in Jump racing as well as dressing up in all their finery to join in with the fashionable crowd. Whether its an extra feather in your hat, the highest heels in your cupboard or, for the men, their very best tweed, it really is an occasion to savour.

The second days hosts the RSA Novices' Chase which in 2017 was won by Might Bite in one of the strangest races I have ever seen. Might Bite was about 12 lengths clear 2 furlongs out but started veering right 1f out, then Whisper caught up and it was neck and neck to the line, the contest was won by Might Bite by a nose.

The Racing highlight of the 2nd day of the Festival is undoubtedly the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase. Run over 2 miles, it is the ultimate test of speed and jumping ability. 2017's race saw the almighty Douvan line up who everyone thought would run away with it, however Special Tiara won this race with Douvan coming 7th. It was later revealed that Douvan had suffered a stress fracture in his pelvis.

Thu 15 Mar 2018

St Patrick's Day

Featured Event

Cheltenham’s celebration of St Patrick’s Day is always a great celebration in their Guinness Village, with Guinness on tap and Irish horses running on the day.

Last Cheltenham Festival St Patricks Day was a great day for the Irish as Willie Mullins trained 4 of the 7 winners that day in Yorkhill, Un De Sceaux, Nichols Canyon and Let's Dance.

The highlight of the day is the World Hurdle which is run over 3 miles. Unowhatimeanharry went into this race odds on favourite having dominated the category through out the season with some people dubbing him the next Thistlecrack. However, he could only manage 3rd behind Nichols Canyon and Lil Rockerfeller respectively.

Fri 16 Mar 2018

Cheltenham Gold Cup Day

Featured Event

The climax of the entire Jump season is the Cheltenham Gold Cup; the highlight of the week and a race that every year is guaranteed to provide a story for the history books.

Previous winners include Golden Miller, Arkle, Desert Orchid and Kauto Star but who will add their name to this illustrious list?

2017's renewal saw a match up between Cue Card, Native River, Djakadam and Sizing John. All eyes were on Cue card to see if he could finally win this race, however it wasn't meant to be as he fell at the penultimate fence for the second year in a row.

All we know is that 2018's renewal will be an incredible race with Thistlecrack returning, Sizing John looking to recapture the title and many other challengers being in contention.

Wed 18 Apr 2018

April - Wednesday

Featured Event

The April Meeting sees racing return to Cheltenham for the first time since The Festival™. It is a quieter meeting that allows racegoers to experience the more relaxing side of Cheltenham away from the typical hustle and bustle of The Festival™ crowds.

Although the jumps season is beginning to wind down there is still some great racing on the track. The racing highlight on the opening day is the Grade 2 Handicap Chase worth £50,000 as well as some top class hurdle races. It's a chance for racegoers to see their racing favourites before the end of the jumps season and enjoy a quality day out in the springtime sunshine.

Thu 19 Apr 2018

April - Thursday

Featured Event

Day two of The April Meeting is principally a showcase for keeping National Hunt mares in training, with four of the seven races being exclusively for mares. The fixture provides the mares in training with greater opportunities and great prize money.

The meeting is perfect for racing fans to watch the jumps season end and see their favourite trainers and horses begin to wrap up their season before the summer.

Fri 04 May 2018

Centaur Party after racing

Fri 04 May 2018

Hunter Chase Evening

Featured Event

Our season finale gives the amateur Jockeys their chance to take centre stage at racing's own ‘Theatre of Dreams’. A hugely popular fixture that invariably draws a large local crowd, this is the only chance to bring family, friends, colleagues and clients to an evening of racing at Cheltenham.

To celebrate the end of the season, a top DJs Greg James and Huw Stephens will be joining us to perform a live DJ set after racing. They will be supported by a live band ahead of their appearance. This fixture is unsurprisingly popular with hen dos, stag dos, birthday groups and friends, and since moving the fixture from a Wednesday to a Friday, has proved all the more popular for those celebrating Cheltenham.

Fancy dress is allowed as long as not deemed offensive, and the club reserves the right to turn anyone away who they believe to be dressed inappropriately.

Racecourse Information

The History

As the Home of Jump racing, there are few sporting venues able to match a prestige such as Cheltenham’s. With 16 enthralling days of top class racing each year and an extensive history, this is the place where Champions are born. Indeed, the best of the best compete in a series of championship races over jumps, and sell out crowds of up to 70,000 pack the racecourse amphitheatre that nestles under Cleeve Hill.

The racecourse also plays host to the creme de la creme of, not only racing at Cheltenham, but the whole jump season in its entirety. Taking place over four days in March, Cheltenham Festival attracts racegoers from far and wide, all helping to create a special atmosphere made up of a 260,000 audience and the best horses, jockeys and trainers worldwide.

Comprising of the Gold Cup, Queen Mother Champion Chase and Champion Hurdle, Cheltenham Festival may well be as close to heaven on earth as possible for real racing fans, whilst the craic contributed by the Irish contingent is always engaging. The final day of the Festival is always the highlight of the week, with the cream of national hunt racehorses taking part in the Blue Riband event – the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup. While for many the 2011 victory of Long Run from past winners Denman, Kauto Star and Imperial Commander will live long in the memory, others will never forget Desert Orchid staying on dourly up the hill to record a famous success in 1989.

Fortunately, the course holds other events outside those marvellous four days in March, with the Bet Victor Gold Cup meeting in November and Trials Day in January filling the Festival void.
