Ladies Day is what some may say the most "glamorous" day of the festival. With hoards of Ladies descending upon "the greatest show on turf" vowing to leave victorious in the fashion stakes or grace the front cover of Thursdays newspapers. (Not always for the right reasons).
Although the real action is on the track, with a fantastic seven race card featuring the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The sight of the best two mile chasers going head-to-head around the famous Cheltenham course is, for many people, the highlight of The Festival. Last year’s renewal was no exception with Sprinter Sacre doing as so many had hoped and proving his dominance over the chase fences at this distance.
Gates open at 10.30am, with the first race each day at 1.30pm and the last race each day at 5.15pm.
