St Patrick’s Thursday
at The Festival™

Day three of Cheltenham Races,
Thursday 14th March 2019

Are you ready for the craic on day three of the Cheltenham Festival? St Patrick’s Thursday is a typically Irish affair with the Guinness Village being a star attraction, as well as live music around the course throughout the day. The Festival™ 2018 saw Irish legends, The Fureys join us in the Guinness Village and The Centaur after racing, and we can’t wait to announce our line up for 2019.

The team from the emerald Isle dominated throughout The Festival™ in 2018, and the racing on St Patrick’s Thursday was no exception with the Irish battalion of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell, and Michael O’Leary winning the Ryanair Chase after 15 years courtesy of Balko Des Flos.

Day three of The Festival™ at Cheltenham Racecourse is one that cannot be missed. With an atmosphere to rival no other, and racing highlights of the week, it is a must-have date in the diary for all.

St Patrick’s Thursday at Cheltenham Festival™ 2019 takes place on Thursday 14th March.
