David Nicholson Mares Hurdle - Cheltenham Tips
The event is named in memory of David Nicholson (1939 2006), who was successful as both a jockey and a trainer in National Hunt racing. Nicholson’s record at the Cheltenham Festival included five victories as a jockey, and seventeen as a trainer. The David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle was established in 2008, and in its inaugural year it was held on the final day of the Festival on Cheltenham’s New Course. It was switched to the opening day on the Old Course in 2009. In 2013 the Willie Mullins trained Quevega.
