OLBG Mares Hurdle PreviewWithout any doubt, the best race of the whole Cheltenham Festival! The OLBG sponsored Mares Hurdle has grown in strength ever since OLBG took up the sponsorship and developed the supporting OLBG Mares Road to Cheltenham.
Now a Grade 1 contest and with the Mares Novice race having been added to the festival this year, Mares racing in the UK and the OLBG Mares Road to Cheltenham is looking stronger than ever.
