Victoria Pendleton to race at Cheltenham festival

Mar 09, 2016 Double Olympic cycling gold medalist Victoria Pendleton recently confirmed that she will ride in the Foxhunter Chase at the Cheltenham Festival on March 18.

Pendleton landed her first victory as an amateur jockey when she won the two-and-a-half-mile Switching Saddles Hunter Chase at Wincanton by 29 lengths.

The 35-year-old, who came second in a flat race at Ripon last year, was unseated on her National Hunt debut when she rode Pacha Du Polder at Fakenham 12 days ago.
