The National Hunt Festival Cheltenham Gold Cup will be taking place from 15 – 18 March 2011 at the world famous Cheltenham Race Course and will be celebrating its 100th anniversary.
The Cheltenham National Hunt Festival is the greatest jump race meeting in the world and is said to be the Olympic Games of National Hunt racing. In 2011 the Cheltenham National Hunt Festival includes St Patrick’s Day on the Thursday which will only add to the event’s ever increasing popularity. The Cheltenham Festival is expecting 55,000 to be attending the event every day.
Last year history was made by Imperial Commander as he destroyed the competition and claimed his first Cheltenham Gold Cup crown. The Festival was also memorable for some incredible performances by many of the other horses and jockeys.
Tickets can be purchased online via the Cheltenham Racecourse Website or by calling 0844 579 3003.
