Cheltenham Festival Results

2020 Cheltenham Festival Results

The headline story from the 2020 Cheltenham Festival was the Gold Cup darling, Al Boum Photo. This horse became the first since Best Mate to win back-to-back Gold Cups. The Willie Mullins-trained horse shrugged off a late fightback from Santini to prevail. Trainer Nicky Henderson still had a successful festival, with his mare Epatante romping to victory in the Champion Hurdle.

2019 Cheltenham Festival Results

Willie Mullins finally bagged his first Gold Cup winner in 2019 with Al Boum Photo fending off a late rally from Anibale Fly to clinch the Gold Cup crown. The hugely impressive Altior maintained his unbeaten form over fences by completing back-to-back victories in the Queen Mother Champion Chase. Paisley Park justified his pre-race favouritism in the Stayers’ Hurdle with a comfortable victory.

2018 Cheltenham Festival Results

The hot topic at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival was the head-to-head battle between Native River and Might Bite in Friday’s Gold Cup. Colin Tizzard’s Native River eventually proved too strong for his rival and the rest of the field to bag Tizzard his inaugural Gold Cup trophy. Meanwhile Penhill graduated from winning 2017’s Albert Bartlett race to win the Stayers’ Hurdle a year later.

2017 Cheltenham Festival Results

The 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup saw a welcome winner in the shape of Sizing John, who demonstrably enjoyed the step up in trip to shrug off Native River and Minella Rocco. In a festival dominated largely by Irish trainers, the 2017 Champion Hurdle winner went to Buveur D’Air, which would eventually be the first of two Champion Hurdle successes for him.

2016 Cheltenham Festival Results

It was a clean sweep for Irish trainers in the first three places at the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Gordon Elliott’s Don Cossack in dominant form from start to finish. It was 22 years since a mare had won the Champion Hurdle at the festival, but Annie Power eventually ended that long wait for a fourth winning mare with a richly deserved victory.

2014 Cheltenham Festival Results

Jim Culloty couldn’t have wished for a better Cheltenham Festival in 2014 by winning the Gold Cup with Lord Windermere in what was a relatively weak field. Culloty entered an exclusive club of four people to have trained and ridden Gold Cup winners. It was a festival for former jockeys-turned-trainers with Jono O’Neill striking lucky with More Of That in the Stayers’ Hurdle.

2013 Cheltenham Festival Results

2011 Champion Hurdle winner Hurricane Fly got back to winning ways at the 2013 Cheltenham Festival, shrugging off the disappointment of his third-placed finish in 2012. Trainer Nicky Henderson enjoyed a fruitful festival, with Bobs Worth gritting his teeth to win the Gold Cup under Barry Geraghty, while French-bred Sprinter Sacre stole the show in the Champion Chase.

McCoy saddled one of his finest rides at the 2012 Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Synchronised digging deep to pip the rest to the post despite being under pressure for the final circuit of the race.

2011 Cheltenham Festival Results

Big Zeb was a major favourite to secure back-to-back Champion Chase victories at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival, but was usurped by a fine race from Sizing Europe. Jockey, Ruby Walsh bagged his first Champion Hurdle win aboard Hurricane Fly but was unable to ride Kauto Star to victory in the Gold Cup as Long Run romped to a surprise win. In doing so, he helped Sam Waley-Cohen become the first amateur rider in three decades to win the prestigious race.

2009 was the year of trainer Paul Nicholls at the Cheltenham Festival. His name was plastered across many of the Cheltenham racing results that week, with Masterminded winning back-to-back Champion Chases. Meanwhile Big Buck’s backed up his stablemate by romping him to another Stayers’ Hurdle.

2008 Cheltenham Festival Results

It was a red-letter festival for jockey Robert Thornton, who bagged a brace of victories aboard Captain Cee Bee and Champion Hurdle winner Katchit. The Howard Johnson-trained Inglis Drever made it three victories in the Stayers’ Hurdle, with all three wins coming with three different jockeys. The 2008 Gold Cup was a battle of Paul Nicholls’ stablemates, with Denman eventually powering home to pip Kauto Star to the post.

2006 Cheltenham Festival Results

All the talk before the 2006 Cheltenham Festival was about whether or not Hardy Eustace was capable of making it a hat-trick of Champion Hurdle wins. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t have accounted for a barnstorming run from Brave Inca to claim the victory with ease. It was another year for Irish racing fans, as Irish-trained Newmill and War of Attrition claimed the Champion Chase and Gold Cup respectively.

2004 Cheltenham Festival Results

The headline from the 2004 Cheltenham races results was Gold Cup hero Best Mate, who became the first champion in over 40 years to bag a hat-trick of successive Gold Cups. Baracouda was also looking to make it three Stayers’ Hurdle wins on the spin but didn’t account for a stirring run from Iris’s Gift who overcame the disappointment of last year’s second-placed finish to enter the winners’ enclosure this time round.

There was a familiar sight to the Cheltenham results from the 2003 festival as Best Mate and Baracouda both secured consecutive Gold Cups and Stayers’ Hurdles respectively.

2001 Cheltenham Festival Results

The 2001 Cheltenham Festival was cancelled following an unexpected outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease across the UK. The festival was originally postponed a month until April, but the festival organisers had no choice but to cancel the event altogether once local cases were discovered, putting Cheltenham Racecourse within the exclusion zone.
