Cheltenham Signals start of Main Meetings

Although there will be a hectic Christmas schedule for race fans to enjoy, for many, the countdown to the Cheltenham festival in March is well underway, in what is always a standout meeting in the year.

After some great performances last year, most notably by Don Cossack who would go on to win the Gold Cup after rival Cue Card had fallen, there will be more excitement this time around.

Despite the race not being until the 17th March, and on the final day of the festival, the bookies have already priced up some of the big names, and Coral have gone with Vautour and Thistlecrack as the early favourites. You would expect this to be decided in the final lengths, and you can keep up with all of the horse racing betting at Coral as the trainers will be looking for their runners and riders to find form over the next few months.

An Early Look at 2016 Breeders Cup Classic

The Breeders’ Cup this year will be held in California and Santa Anita Park. In the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the competitors will be in the race for the share of $6 million, which is $1 million more than it was last year. If competitors want a shot at taking a good chunk of this money, then they will first need to get past the top dirt handicap horse, California Chrome.

California Chrome was good at just 2 years old, at 3 years old he was great and at 4 years old it looked like he was going to have an amazing season, but due to injury, he was derailed. Now California Chrome is 5 years old and he is amazing on the field. California Chrome, who is the son of Lucky Pulpit has had victories in the G2 San Pasqual, the Group 1, a handicap at Meydan, the G2 San Diego Handicap, $10 million Dubai World Cup and the Win and You’re in Grade 1 Pacific Classic. California Chrome is set to be the one to beat in the World Championships’ premier race as he is performing better than ever.
