Wednesday - Ladies Day

Wednesday 13th March, 2019
Ladies’ Day at the Cheltenham Festival is always a wonderful occasion, where female racegoers are encouraged to wear their finest seasonal racing garments and enter a number of fashion pageants. It’s quite appropriate that the feature race on Ladies’ Day, the Champion Chase, beholds the name of the Queen Mother – a regal figure who put so much into the sport of horse racing during the 20th century. 

Only the greatest chaser of its generation will be good enough to be crowned Champion Chaser and some of the finest to ever leap a fence have sealed Grade One glory on day two of the Cheltenham Festival. Badsworth Boy claimed a historic hattrick of Champion Chase victories during the 1980’s and his crown has been passed down to the likes of Moscow Flyer, Viking Flagship and Sprinter Sacre. 

Wednesday’s card kicks off in thrilling fashion, with back-to-back Grade Ones for novices. First, some of the best young hurdlers in the business take to the track in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, before a field of budding staying chasers battle it out in the RSA Novices’ Chase, a race renowned for producing plenty of future Gold Cup winners. 

The first of two handicaps then follows, with a large, classy field expected to enter the Coral Cup. After the Champion Chase, attendees are treated to the unique challenge of the Cross Country Chase, as entrants tackle a three-and-three-quarter-mile route around Prestbury Park, while scaling a whole host of unusual obstacles. 

The penultimate race on Wednesday’s card is the Fred Winter, a two-mile handicap hurdle contested only by juvenile horses. Day two is then rounded off by the Champion Bumper, where viewers are likely to see the emergence of a future star of the jumps racing scene.
