GOLD CUP DAY A SELL-OUT IN BEST MATE ENCLOSURE
There is now little over a month to go until the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup on the final day of The Festival, Friday, March 15, and the countdown intensified yesterday with the victories of leading contenders Silviniaco Conti and Sir Des Champs respectively in the Denman Chase at Newbury and the Hennessy Gold Cup at Leopardstown.
Not surprisingly, tickets and badges for Gold Cup Day are proving popular and the Best Mate Enclosure is now sold out completely for March 15.
There is still some availability for the Tattersalls and Club Enclosures on Gold Cup Day, but these are going fast.
Cheltenham Racecourse reminds racegoers that capacity for Gold Cup Day in 2013 has been reduced by up to 5,000 so it is imperative to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Tickets and badges are also available for the first three days of The Festival that starts at Cheltenham Racecourse on Tuesday, March 12, Champion Day, which has just been voted the best day’s racing in Britain during the whole year by readers of the Racing Post newspaper.
To book tickets, please go to www.cheltenham.co.uk or call 08445 793 003.
