Charity Race Day

December 11th 11.00am
Istabraq Bar, The Centaur, Cheltenham Race Course

An annual event in the fundraising calendar. The Tewkesbury and Cheltenham Borough Mayors race day.

We arrived to thick fog across the course

but no matter. A warming mulled wine on arrival

and then down to the serious business of which horse to back.

 

 

Out on the course the fog was clearing

and the real punters were gearing up for a good day.

There was plenty of choice to place your shirt

and thousands of people enjoying the experience many of them in corporate boxes

And there off!

Mines still running 😦

A smashing day. Having lost on the first two races and not knowing a thing about racing, decided I was not going to make a fortune today so kept my money in my pocket.
