Cheltenham Festival Feature Races

Champion Hurdle – Day One

The first feature race of the Cheltenham Festival takes place on the opening day of the meeting and it is called Champion Hurdle. This race is a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race which is over a distance of 2 miles and 110 yards. The race is for horses who are four years or older and has a prize pot of £400k with the winner that can get around £250k.  

Queen Mother Champion Chase – Day Two

The Champion Chase is the Cheltenham Festival feature race of the Day 2 of the meeting. It is also a National Hunt grade 1 race, but it is a steeplechase and not a hurdle with horses that have to negotiate 12 fences. The race is for horses who are 5 years or older, and it is run over a distance of 2 miles. The winner will pocket around £225k while the total prize pot is £400k. 

Ryanair Chase (Festival Trophy) – Day Three

The Ryanair chase is one of the most important races of the third day of the Cheltenham Festival. It was added when the meeting was expanded to four days back in 2005, and it has, therefore, less history compared with the other feature races. This context has become so popular that the price pot is higher than the other feature race of the third day, which is the Stayer’s Hurdle. The Ryanair chase is a two-mile and five-furlong chase with horses that have to negotiate 17 fences. Since 2008 it has become a grade 1 race. 

Stayers’ Hurdle – Day Three

The Stayers’ Hurdle is the main feature race of day 3 at Cheltenham Festival. It is a grade 1 jump race which is open to horses who are 4 years and older. It is run on the new course at Cheltenham over a distance of 3 miles. It was first to run in 1912.  

Cheltenham Gold Cup – Day Four

The Gold Cup is the most important race of the Cheltenham Festival, and it is held on the final day. It is a grade 1 national hunt steeplechase which is over a distance of 3 miles and 2 1/2 furlongs. Horses have to overcome 22 fences over the run and takes place on the new course at Cheltenham. This race is for horses who are 5 years and older and has a prize pot of more than £615K with around £350k that goes to the winner.
