Cheltenham Race Track History & Information

Cheltenham Racecourse is called "the home of National Hunt racing", mainly because it hosts the Cheltenham Festival, featuring the Cheltenham Gold Cup. With a capacity of 67,500 spectators it has its own steam railway station, connecting with the preserved Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. The racecourse is the home of one of the largest auditoria in the South West of England hosting concerts, conferences and is also home to the Steeple Chasing Hall of Fame. The main racing takes place on two separate courses alongside each other, the Old Course and the New Course, both with very testing steeplechase fences. Two unique races a year are staged on the Cross-country course. . Cheltenham statistics here
