Winners At Cheltenham 2012

Cheltenham Festival 2012

  • After four days of championship racing the Cheltenham Festival is over for another year. On the face of it 5 Irish trained winners might herald a disappointing year for Ireland but if you delve a little deeper you will uncover a highly successful festival from an Irish perspective.
  • Perhaps the most pleasing aspect was the fact that 12 of the 27 races were won by Irish bred horses and the winners of the Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle and Champion Chase were all bred in Ireland.
  • Irish bred horses won six Grade 1 races and Irish born jockeys won an amazing 22 of the 27 races with Barry Geraghty finishing up top jockey for the festival.
