For fans of National Hunt Racing, there is only one true home: Cheltenham. The Little Book of Cheltenham explores the remarkable history of this iconic racecourse and charts its progression from the first Gold Cup - a Flat race run on Cleeve Hill in 1819 - to the £45 million redevelopment announced in 2013. From Golden Miller, Arkle and Vincent O'Brien to Best Mate, Ruby Walsh and Sam Waley-Cohen, we meet some of the characters - equine and human - who have become Cheltenham heroes, and go behind the scenes to discover how the heart of jumping racing operates.
This book is packed with fascinating facts about the racecourse and those who have starred there over the years and tells the stories behind the statistics. It is the most essential pocket guide to Cheltenham and its most famous meeting - The Festival, which dominates the modern jump racing calendar.
