From March 16-19, 2010, the finest talents in Irish national hunt racing will converge on the Cheltenham Racecourse at Prestbury Park to compete in the one of the year’s most important racing betting events.
After witnessing a 2009 meeting that saw several records shattered, and history made in the Cheltenham Gold Cup as Kauto Star became the first horse to win back the title, punters will be expecting big things of performers at Prestbury Park.
The 2010 Cheltenham Festival parimutuel betting markets are expected to run into tens of millions of dollars (pounds), while fixed-odds antepost markets on several of the meeting’s key races are already available from some of the UK’s top bookies.
We’ll keep you posted on the entrants as we get closer to the Festival.
Ireland is one of my favorite places to watch horse racing.
