Alex Ferguson, Paul Scholes or Sir Alex Ferguson have also been to this equestrian festival.
This pair of teachers and students at Man Utd did not miss the largest UK horse racing festival in Cheltenham. Alex Ferguson went to the Cheltenham horse racing festival on 13/3/018. Having owned many racing horses, the former Man Utd coach is very knowledgeable about this speed game.
In the past, Sir Alex has sued a former Man Utd shareholder, John Magnier over the ownership of the Rock of Gibraltar. The two sides later settled the case outside the court.
Paul Scholes, a former Man Utd player, was also present at the festival. The star shares a common interest with his former teacher and many former teammates such as Wayne Rooney, John O’Shea or Owen. Scholes himself once owned the Diaminda horse with O’Shea.
After brain surgery in May 2019, Scottish coach Sir Alex Ferguson has recovered very well and recently he attended a horse race at the Cheltenham Festival 2019 with a very good spirit and condition.
Already a big fan of horse racing, Sir Alex Ferguson often competed in races like this even when he was still at Old Trafford. In the race just took place, Sir Alex also brought his precious horse: Clan Des Obeaux.
The driver, Paul Nicholls, who was with Sir Alex’s horse in the last race was very excited but could not get the highest result in the final. He felt it was great to be involved in the Gold Cup that time. Clan Des Obeaux has improved a lot compared to the same time in 2018. And in terms of common ground, this is a tournament suitable for this horse. Paul Nicholls shared after finishing the race and finished in 5th place.
Although finishing only in 5th place, this is still a sufficient achievement to bring a satisfied smile to Sir Alex. It can be said that since seeing the pet team perform better and have won important victories, Sir Alex’s mood has improved a lot.
