The Cheltenham Festival Top Owner Betting market is a bet on who you think will own the most winners of the 4 days of the Cheltenham Festival.
Basically, top race horse owners are very rich people (you’ll no doubt be unsurprised to know), and as a result they can own lots of horses. Owners such as the legendary JP McManus, or Rich Ricci, or the Gigginstown House Stud (basically Michael O’Leary of Ryanair fame), own multiple horses – and given their wealth, they are generally the best horses.
Never ones to miss a trick, every year the bookmakers run a book on which one of these multi-millionaire owners you think will have the most winners.
This year sees JP McManus leading the betting at as short as 2/7 with some bookmakers. Gigginstown House Stud are 4/1, with Rich Ricci at 14/1.
Recommended Cheltenham Festival Bookmakers
It’s not just the main 4 Cheltenham Championship Races that these owners will have horses run in, they are renowned for blooding up and coming horses at the Festival, so will also have plenty of younger less experienced horses in the lesser races, all of which count towards the total amount of winners to be had throughout the week.
