Cheltenham Festival Tips and Results - The National Hunt & More

The famous Cheltenham Festival is a meeting in the National Hunt racing calendar in the UK, with race prize money second only to the Grand National. Many of the best Irish- and British-trained horses race to an extent that is relatively rare in the entire season.

The Cheltenham Festival is a horse race that is the second largest after the Grand National. It was first staged in 1860 then known as the National Hunt Chase then changed to Cheltenham in 1904 and 1905. It usually features Irish- and British-trained horses competing to win the grand prize. The competition is held annually usually around March and mostly it coincides with St. Patrick’s Day. The races in this competition include the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Hurdle and World Hurdle.

The 2016 Highlights – What You Can Learn From This

In 2016, the competition took place from 15th to 18th March. After a year of difficult training for the competition, the festival attracted jockeys from all over Europe. The Cheltenham results featured one of the favourite horses Annie Power and jockey Ruby Walsh took the cup setting off the opening day on a high note.

Sprinter Sacre won the Queen Mother Champion Chase for the second time, while Thristletrack easily won the World Hurdle on the second day. On the last day, Don Cossack beat all the other competitors to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup which is the most coveted prize at the Cheltenham races. The festival was largely covered on Channel 4, attracting an audience of millions of people.
