Free entry at Cheltenham

Cheltenham racecourse has taken the opportunity to bring together four equine stars and celebrate their super grooms who have been such a huge part of the horse’s success.

And even better – they are inviting all BGA Members to come along racing for FREE to the Champions Willberry Charity Race Day on Thursday 20th April.

In a one off parade the most charismatic racehorse of recent times, SPRINTER SACRE will be joined at the scene of his greatest triumphs by three times Olympic Gold Medallist VALEGRO, the 'Dancing Horse' from the London Olympics, BIG STAR, Fellow London Gold medallist, who doubled up in Rio for show jumping legend Nick Skelton and CHILLI MORNING, the only stallion to win the great Badminton Horse trials.

With three of our BGA Ambassadors present, the BGA will be so very proud to see their hard work and dedication celebrated:

ALAN DAVIES has been all over the world with Valegro, 2016 Groom of the year recipient.

MARK BEAVER has been at the heart of Nick Skelton's team for 35 years and is a constant for Big Star.
