Will the Cheltenham Festival be on or off?
There are some bad news as well, and questions have been raised will the event be held at all. Cheltenham Horse Racing event might be is in trouble because of the equine flu crisis.
So far, a shutdown of race meetings for six days has been ordered and the 174 stables are in quarantine as the leading men of the Horse Racing are trying their best to contain the highly contagious disease.
Horses sound health is a priority here and very important for the horse racing sport in general, that’s why proper measures will be taken before the event starts in order to tackle the equine flu crisis.
Relevant authorities are trying their best to solve the problem as the flu can affect both humans and animals.
However, we believe that lady luck will be on our side an the event will be held as per schedule.
What it would mean if the Cheltenham Festival is called off?
Well, to call off such a huge event will result in substantial financial damage, to all parties involved, and figures are around £200m in possible losses.
It would be a huge disappointment for the attenders as well, keep your fingers crossed for the positive outcome, see you at the Festival!
