The famous Cheltenham roar awaited racegoers on Day one of The Festival™. As the tapes were raised for the opening race, Horsemen and racegoers alike rejoiced as the 12-month wait was over and racing’s favourite fixture was back. The first day of The Festival™ featured the most important hurdle race of the season, the Unibet Champion Hurdle. This year, Nicky Henderson’s Buveur D’Air took the honours and became the first horse since Hardy Eustace in 2004 and 2005 to retain the title. Champion Day also featured the ever-competitive OLBG Mares’ Hurdle Race which was won by Benie Des Dieux and Summerville Boy took the Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.

Day One of The Festival™ is full of nerves and anticipation as the greatest week in racing begins, and the famous roar can finally be released.

The team here at Cheltenham have some Top Tips to make your day a success:
Wear: Comfy shoes, there is plenty to see on Champion Day
See: The first race, you won’t want to miss the famous Cheltenham roar
