Horse racing has been a passion for many years in Britain, it is loved by all from royalty to the common man. And as the years have passed classic races have captured the imagination of the public such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup, The Grand National, the Oaks, and the Derby.
The Cheltenham Gold Cup sits at the very pinnacle of jump racing in Britain, both in terms of prize money and prestige. And here at George Regal Transport we have arranged many Cheltenham Mini Bus Transfers for groups attending the Gold Cup and other great races at this historic racecourse.
A trip to the races can be enjoyed by many different types of groups, from corporate parties to stag and hen parties and many other occasions such as birthday celebrations. But Cheltenham Racecourse does not only play host to the Gold Cup, it also holds other first-class races and meetings.
The Gold Cup
The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a Grade 1, National Hunt race, which is run on the New Course at the legendary racecourse. The event takes in twenty-two fences over a distance of three miles and two and a half furlongs.
Taking place every year in March, this world-famous steeplechase is open for the best five-year-old horses and older. The Gold Cup is often referred to as the Blue Ribbon even of all steeplechases around the world and is the most valuable non-handicap chase in Britain.
Horses that have won this auspicious race have included: Golden Miller, Arkle, L’Escargot, Best Mate and Kauto Star.
