Cheltenham Festival LIVE: Favorites and Results

Thousands gather for the first day of the Cheltenham Festival

The Cheltenham Festival returns in 2023 with an exciting week of racing in the Cotswolds known as ‘The Greatest Show on Turf’ as racegoers descend on the legendary circuit.

The Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup conclude the four-day meeting as perhaps the two most iconic Grade 1 races, with Constitution Hill triumphing in Tuesday’s Champion Hurdle and showing his class winning at the canter after starting out as overwhelming. heavy-backed favorite.

Meanwhile, Rachael Blackmore returns to Cheltenham to make more history after a stunning win to retain the Gold Cup in 2022 – a win that helped the Irish coaches triumph over their British counterparts with ease and the the prestigious Prestbury Cup with a mighty 18 victories compared to just 10 for the home horses.

A study by the University of Gloucestershire has found that the festival will provide a massive £274m boost to the local economy, and while organizers are hoping the rain will stop, it promises to be an exciting week of racing nonetheless.

Coach Willie Mullins on Racing TV:

“We are very happy to have two winners today. I had a cup of tea and thought this is over, I couldn’t see him win until the other horse fell but you need luck.

“He has a lot of stamina, but he hasn’t gained the weight I thought he would. I think the Irish National might come too soon for him. That was a tough race.”
