The 2014 Cheltenham Festival dedicated site has already given away hundreds of passes to the world’s most famous meeting and their readers will now be entering to win tickets to Champions Day at this year’s Festival.
Cheltenham can expect to welcome over 200,000 racegoers from all over the world at the Festival and it’s believed that more than £500 million will be gambled throughout the meeting. It has rapidly become one of the most famous fixtures on the entire racing calendar and race fans will be delighted to be given another chance to win tickets to the hottest show in racing.
Champions Day is the first day of the Festival and it features the most important hurdle race of the season – the Champion Hurdle. Experts are labelling this year’s renewal of the race as one of the most exciting of all time and a vintage crop of horses looks set to battle it out at Prestbury Park.
With defending champion Hurricane Fly crossing the Irish Sea in a bid to defend his title, competition winners will get to see one of the sport’s most famous names and he will be tackled by some of the most exciting hurdlers on the planet.
The New One, My Tent Or Yours, Jezki and Our Conor will all be in opposition and racegoers can expect an incredible atmosphere at Cheltenham.
CheltenhamFestival.net editor Nick Wilby explained: “We’re thrilled to have sent so many race fans to this year’s Festival and we still have more tickets up for grabs.
“Champion Hurdle day is always one of the highlights of the week and we hope whoever wins the competition has as good a day as we do!”
There will also be six other races on the opening day, including the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle which is accompanied by the famous ‘Cheltenham roar.’
“The roar really is something special and until you’ve been to Cheltenham to experience it, you’re truly missing out. It can signal the start of a sensational week in the betting jungle, or for some, the beginning of a calamitous four days on the Cotswolds,” explained Wilby.
Also on the card will be the Mares Hurdle, won for the last five years by Quevega, who will be returning in search of yet another victory in the Grade One highlight.
Gates open at 10.30am, with the first race each day at 1.30pm and the last race each day at 5.15pm.
