Cheltenham festival 2021 dates
The Cheltenham Festival for 2021 will take place from Tuesday the 16th of March to Friday the 19th of March. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, there will be some changes to the festival to the normal run of the festival. Attendance will not be permitted and as a result, tickets will be in high demand.
Cheltenham Day 1 - Champion Day
The first day of the festival known as Champions day takes its name from the Champion Hurdle, the headline event on the card. The day starts with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle a two-mile Grade 1 contest which typically draws a large cheer from the crowd referred to as the “Cheltenham Roar”. The day continues with the Arkle Challenge Trophy and the Festival Handicap Chase before the Champion Hurdle.
Due to the high level of competition on display at the festival, the races are typically close to call resulting in great odds at the bookmakers. At Goodwin Racing this is no different, we offer 1/4 odds a place every race to our customers for the Cheltenham festival register now to find out more.
Cheltenham Day 2 - Ladies Day
Wednesday at Cheltenham Festival is known as Ladies Day and would normally draw crowds dressed in their finest attire. Ladies Day isn’t just a social event to be seen at the day is also packed with competitive races and fantastic betting odds.
The headlining race of the day “Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase” was named after the Queen Mother, to celebrate her 80th Birthday. Her Majesty was an avid supporter of the sport so naming the race after she is a fitting tribute.
Cheltenham Day 3 - St Patrick's Day
The Thursday of the festival lands on Saint Patrick’s Day and is a celebration of all the Irish owners, trainers, jockeys and horses that make the sport the what it is. The headline race for the day is The Stayers’ Hurdle which typically produces one of the most memorable races of the week.
Cheltenham Day 4 - Gold Cup Day
Friday marks the final day of the festival and hosts the signature contest of the event, The Cheltenham Gold Cup. The race is one of the longer distance races at the festival clocking in at 3 miles 2 furlongs and 70 yards, or 5,294 m. and includes 22 fences. The steeplechase is the most prestigious National Hunt event of the year and boasts the largest prize fund for a non-handicap chase in Britain, with 2019 race offering £625,000.
The Gold Cup race draws the larger crowd and TV audience of the weekend along with the largest bets of the festival, so it isn’t one to miss.
After the dust has settled on the Gold Cup race, amateur riders are given an opportunity to race at Gold Cup distance in The Foxhunter Chase. This marks the final large races for betting and then it’s on to ante-post betting markets ahead of next years race.
