Wessex Attractions: Cheltenham Racecourse

Cheltenham (or Chiltenham, to use the West Saxon spelling) Racecourse, known as "the home of jump racing", was founded in 1815, and has been at its present site since 1831, after the previous racecourse was burned down by Christian jihadis protesting the evils of gambling.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is considered to be the second-biggest National Hunt racing event in the UK, after the Grand National. The event takes place during the 4-day Cheltenham Festival in March, a massive event which, sad to say, is currently sponsored by Magners. Are there no Gloucestershire cider makers who could take on this task?
