2020 Cheltenham Gold Cup
The 2020 Cheltenham Gold Cup (known as the Magners Gold Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the 92nd annual running of the Cheltenham Gold Cup horse race and was held at Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire, England, on 13 March 2020.
The race was won for the second year in a row by Al Boum Photo, ridden by Paul Townend and trained by Willie Mullins. The race was held during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom, which later caused controversy as some scientists believed the meeting led to an increase of infections and deaths.
