🏇 They’re under starters orders at Sandown Park for Tingle Creek Chase Day. National Hunt racing at its best is guaranteed at one Sandown’s biggest racedays of the year. Tickets are on sale now.
The Betfair Tingle Creek Festival is back for 2019, an ever-popular occasion for friends and family to get together before Christmas to enjoy top quality jump racing action.
The feature of the festival is the Tingle Creek Chase, a race steeped in history testing speed and jumping for the best two mile chasers around. This Grade 1 (the highest quality races in National Hunt) feature race is one of the biggest staged at Sandown Park and attracts the best horses and jockeys from afar.
The roll call of champions includes Flagship Uberalles (a three-time winner) and the legendary Kauto Star. And over the last 10 years equine stars such as Sprinter Sacre and Master Minded have prevailed, with last year’s race seeing jump racing world record holder, Altior, claim the prize; but who will it be this year?
Today’s action features not one but two Grade 1 showdowns, with the Randoxhealth.com Henry VIII Novices’ Chase likely to feature the stars of the futures.
