Festival de Cheltenham 2019
March 12-15, 2019 -- O Festival de Cheltenham, um dos acontecimentos mais prestigiados do mundo do hipismo tem lugar no Gloucestershire, Inglaterra. O festival deste ano avança normalmente apesar do susto causado por um surto de febre equina que levou ao encerramento de 174 estábulos desportivos na Grã-Bretanha.
The four-day festival features many of the best British and Irish trained horses and is particularly popular with Irish visitors.
The climax of the week is the Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday, with other highlights being Tuesday’s Unibet Champion Hurdle, Wednesday’s Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Sun Racing Stayers’ Hurdle on Thursday.
The winner of the 2019 Gold Cup will be presented with the original 1924 trophy, after Cheltenham Racecourse regained ownership last year after decades of being held in private ownership.
