Cheltenham Gold Cup Odds

Cheltenham Gold Cup – A History

The main race of the now world-renowned Cheltenham Festival, the Gold Cup features a field comprising of some of the best racehorses on the planet. It is also one of the richest prizes in horseracing, with the winner standing to pick up a cheque for more than £250,000.

The Gold Cup’s origins can be traced back all the way back to 1819, although the first official Gold Cup Chase was held in 1924. The Gold Cup in its current form has been at Cheltenham since the first official race, where it was a jumps race.

Since then, crowds have grown significantly while the calibre of racehorse, jockey and trainer involved has improved immeasurably, attracting some of the greats such as Best Mate and Kauto Star. In recent years, crowds of over 70,000 have come just for Gold Cup Day.

This year will see the winner bag over £300,000, although they will have to work hard on one of the toughest jump courses in the UK in a world-class field.
