Cheltenham National Hunt Festival

Cheltenham Racecourse - 15/03/2016

  • Cheltenham National Hunt Festival

The highlight race on the card is the Stan James Champion Hurdle, where 2015 saw Faugheen win the race very impressively for trainer Willie Mullins. Record books were broken as Willie and his charges made it to the Winner’s Enclosure four times that day with Glen’s Melody, Un De Secaux and Douvan.

Seven cracking races and the unique first day atmosphere make this one of the sporting highlights of the year and Cheltenham busiest day of the season, outside of Gold Cup Day.
