The Cheltenham Festival is one of UK’s top three horse racing events, just a few weeks before the grandest race of all, the Grand National. The event began in 1860 at the Cheltenham Racecourse in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

 

It features several Grade I races including the highlight of the event, the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Other top races include the Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother Champion Chase and World Hurdle.

 

Cheltenham is famous for its festive atmosphere, most notably for the “Cheltenham Roar”, which refers to the crowds cheers just before the first race of the festival begins.
