The Home of Jump Racing

By Jamey Price In Recent Work, Equine

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.

    Jamey,

    Great images. I really enjoyed the vibrant colors and the clarity. I felt as if I was at the race.

    Thank you, Mick

    PS: The french are know for their food not their cars. However it has been reported that they made a tank that went faster in reverse than it did going forward.
