I’m really looking forward to this week.
Because it’s the Cheltenham Festival.
For those of you who don’t know, I love horse racing. I’m not exactly a sportsman, but that’s the one sport I really enjoy watching.
Heck, it’s the sport that first got me started online!
But more on that in a moment.
If you’re not sure what the Cheltenham Festival is, let me explain…
It’s a jumps meeting (meaning the horses have to jump over obstacles) which has the second highest prize money after the Grand National.
As you know, in England we like to do things that are old. And horse racing is no exception.
This horse racing festival first started in 1860, and there’s still one race which is run that existed in 1912.
That’s pretty friggin awesome (IMHO).
It’s also well bet. Usually there’s around £250 – £300 million pounds bet during the festival, which would indicate I’m not the only person who enjoys it 😉
My love of horse racing got me writing for a magazine, and from there I began my journey online with a year-long course and then a blog called the Race Advisor.
I’m proud to say that the Race Advisor is now one of the most popular horse racing blogs in the UK. Something I couldn’t have done without the incredible team of people working with me on it (thanks you lot).
So, if you’re a horse racing fan, or just fancy watching a big race, you can head over to my horse racing site at www.raceadvisor.co.uk, join the newsletter and look out for our emails with info on who to bet.
Happy Monday 🙂
