Cheltenham is the creme of the crop in terms of race courses and because of it’s high calibre, it naturally draws the best horses to run there. I was fortunate enough to cover a couple day’s racing at this iconic British race course.
Weather on the Friday was typical of England with cold rain and high winds making it a miserable experience for everyone. The Saturday was much better with clear skies and comfortable autumn temperatures. The day was capped off with Nige’s oldest son, Sam, who is a professional jockey and leading conditional, winning the weekend’s feature race, the Paddy Power Gold Cup aboard his mount, Little Josh. Sunday, the chilly weather returned, but this time without rain. I had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed every minute at the races and I sincerely appreciate the hospitality of Cheltenham race course.
