A day at the races ... its Cheltenham Gold Cup Week. March 11, 2016 21:05

March 18th 2016 and one of the greatest races in the UK takes place in a weeks time just up the road from All Horsey HQ. The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a prestigious horse race, run over 3 miles 2.5 furlongs, on the left handed track, that finishes up the Cheltenham Hill. The race has been won by many a good horse, including the awesome Arkle, Mill House, Desert Orchid, in years gone by and my last tipple winner was Bobs Worth in 2013. 

During the Gold Cup Festival week, which runs over four days, Cheltenham and surrounding areas, become a total madness that no other date of the year excites. Traffic, into and around, Cheltenham becomes impossible, and bars, clubs and restaurants, fully booked. I myself have had many happy memories at the races, and feel lucky to live so close to a great race course.
