Cheltenham Festival 2024 Hospitality & Corporate Packages
Races at Cheltenham
Cheltenham Festival Corporate Hospitality – Champion Day
The opening of the Cheltenham Festival is Champion Day, and arguably one of the best days of the whole year. There are four Grade One contests including the Champion Hurdle – one of the biggest races of the season.
The meeting opens with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the atmosphere is amazing as the famous ‘Cheltenham roar’ echoes from the stands. The race starts the four-day bonanza and makes it a hard event to miss with our fantastic Cheltenham Festival tickets and hospitality packages. It is always a fascinating contest and has been won in recent years by the likes of Vautour, Douvan and Brave Inca.
But the undisputed feature of the day is the Champion Hurdle. The premier two-mile has been won by legends like Istabraq, Hurricane Fly Sea Pigeon and Buveur D’Air. In 2020, the title was taken by Epatante, giving Nicky Henderson his eighth win in the Cheltenham race.
Then, in 2021 it was Honeysuckle who was victorious in the Champion Hurdle with Sharjah and Epatante having to settle for second and third place respectively that year. This was Rachael Blackmore and trainer Henry de Bromhead’s first win in this race. They were both winners again with Honeysuckle in 2022.
The most recent renewal of the Champion Hurdle in 2023 saw Nico de Boinville ride Constitution Hill to a sensational victory ahead of Paul Townend’s State Man and Davy Russell’s Zanahiyr in second and third place respectively.
The other major Cheltenham races on opening day include The Arkle Challenge Trophy and The Mares’ Hurdle.
Cheltenham Festival Hospitality – Ladies Day
Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day is one of the most popular days of the meeting. Cheltenham Ladies Day is a stylish and glamorous event, and with high-quality racing on the card, it's one of the most highly anticipated days of the season.
The main event of Ladies Day is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. It’s run at a good pace with horses requiring both speed and great jumping ability. The list of winners includes Master Minded, Sprinter Sacre and Flyingbolt. These are some of the greatest horses in the history of this division so getting your hospitality packages and Cheltenham races tickets is a must!
They say that the best horses never come back from injury, but they aren’t all Sprinter Sacre. The 10-year-old rolled back the years to take the Queen Mother Champion Chase for a second time. After being written-off just 12-months earlier, this victory meant there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle is the race where so many champions make their mark. The Grade One event has been won by the likes of Istabraq, Faugheen, Hardy Eustace and Simonsig.
Other majors on the Cheltenham Ladies Day include the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase (formerly the RSA Chase), The Coral Cup, and The Champion Bumper.
Cheltenham Festival Hospitality – Cheltenham St Patricks Day
Expect the Guinness to flow as we celebrate Cheltenham St Patricks Day with our Irish neighbours. This day has a fantastic atmosphere and makes for a very special day at the races.
The Stayers’ Hurdle is a true test of stamina for three-mile hurdlers. The hurdle has been the scene of several history-making performances. Inglis Drever became the first three-time winner of the race in 2008. Big Bucks crushed that record by winning in four consecutive Stayers' Hurdles.
Aidan Coleman on Paisley Park stunned the masses in the Stayers’ Hurdle at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. It was a fairy tale win for the pair who had been stuck in traffic for much of the race. 2020 saw, however, saw a surprise win by Lisnagar Oscar, following a misstep by Paisley Park.
The 2021 winner of the Stayers’ Hurdle was won by Danny Mullins riding Flooring Porter to the win ahead of Mark Walsh’s Sire Du Berlais and Aidan Coleman’s Paisley Park. Then, in 2022, Flooring Porter and Mullins won for the second consecutive year after fending off competition from Tom O’Brien’s Thyme Hill and Aidan Coleman’s Paisley Park on this occasion.
The most recent renewal of the Stayers’ Hurdle at Cheltenham was in 2023. It was won by Sire Du Berlais, who was ridden by Mark Walsh and trained by Gordon Elliott. Rex Dingle’s Dashel Drasher and Davy Russell’s Teahupoo came second and third place respectively in the end.
The Ryanair Chase is another superb Grade One contest and was introduced to The Festival in 2005. It has been won by popular horses such as Cue Card, Albertas Run and Imperial Commander.
Other fantastic contests on day three include The Novices’ Chase, Novices´ Hurdle and Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup. This is a perfect day to experience a great atmosphere with our VIP hospitality and tickets.
Cheltenham Festival Hospitality – Cheltenham Gold Cup Day
The final day of the meeting is Cheltenham Gold Cup Day and it’s one of the biggest events in racing today. The feature race will be the Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup, formerly known as the Magners Gold Cup. This is always the premier race at the Cheltenham Festival and the most prestigious chase in the world.
So many horse racing icons have cemented their legacy in this endurance test. Best Mate, Kauto Star and Arkle were all winners of the race highlighting the class of the contest. In 2018 Native River broke his Cheltenham Festival duck as he romped to victory. He was the hot favourite in 2019 too but was beaten 3 lengths by Al Boum Photo to give Willie Mullins his first Gold Cup victory. 2020 also saw Al Boum Photo take the crown once again.
In the 2021 renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Minella Indo emerged victorious, handing jockey Jack Kennedy and trainer Henry de Bromhead their maiden wins in this race. 2022 then saw A Plus Tard fend off competition from previous years’ winner Minella Indo and Protektorat. This was Henry de Bromhead’s second successive win and jockey Rachael Blackmore’s first ever Gold Cup win at Cheltenham.
The most recent winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2023 was Galopin Des Champs. This was jockey Paul Townend and trainer Willie Mullins’ third victory in this race after two with Al Boum Photo in 2019 and 2020.
The winner of the 2021 Gold Cup was Minella Indo, ridden by jockey Jack Kennedy and trained by Henry De Bromhead. A Plus Tard and Al Boum Photo had to settle for a second and third place finish in the end. This was Kennedy and De Bromhead’s first wins in the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival.
After being runner-up in 2021, A Plus Tard emerged victorious a year later in the 2022 renewal of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Rachael Blackmore guided her horse to victory ahead of Minella Indo and Protektorat. This was Blackmore’s first Gold Cup win and Henry De Bromhead’s second.
In winning the Gold Cup, Rachael Blackmore became the first female jockey to win this race.
Galopin Des Champs was the winner of the most recent Gold Cup at Cheltenham in 2023. Jockey Paul Townend and trainer Willie Mullins tasted their third wins in one of horse racing’s most prestigious races.
The Triumph Hurdle is the opening race of the Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup Day. The hurdle is the biggest race of the season for juveniles. That is followed by The County Hurdle, Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle and The Grand Annual Chase.
