Cheltenham Festival 2001

The 2001 Cheltenham Festival was at first postponed and then cancelled in 2001, after a well-publicised outbreak of foot and mouth disease affected the area. The first time there hadn’t been a Gold Cup chase at Cheltenham for decades.

There have been no such problems since, but there has been a number of amazing races featuring Best Mate, the first to win the race in three consecutive season and Kauto Star, the first to regain the title after losing out the year before.
