  Cheltenham Festival 2013, Promises Another Exciting Event  
1/28/13 - The Cheltenham Festival is the name given to the spectacular 4 day, race championship event, held each year at Cheltenham Racecourse in March.

The event itself encompasses 3 days of spectacular, heart-pounding horse racing. Not only is the racing exciting, it is also dangerous. As these races are contested over the "jumps".

This means that jockeys and horses have to be "exceptional" as they are not only racing, but jumping obstacles like hedges on the course as they run.

This years event will be held from Tues, March 12 - Friday, March 15.

Day 1 is known as "Champions Day" and includes a parade of past champions. There will also be entertainment for spectators and celebrity interviews. The Stan James Champion Hurdle is the highlight of the Day 1 Race Card.

Day 2 is called "Ladies Day" and the ladies are center stage. Not only on the racecourse but in the fashion ring as well.

Day 3 of the event is "St Patricks's Tuesday" , grab a pint and enjoy great racing on St Paddy's Day, like the Ladrokes World Hurdle and the Ryanair Chase Race.

Day 4 is the final day of racing and is called "Cheltenham Gold Cup Day" . They saved the best for last, as the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup is run on the final day of the Festival.

The crowds will be large and the betting furious, with such a great racing event. The best way to follow this years event is online at William Hill Cheltenham , you can also have a punt or two if you wish. Mark your calendar and follow the action either in person or online for this years event.
