Horse Racing - Cheltenham Gold Cup

The blue riband of British National Hunt racing is held at Cheltenham racecourse during the four-day Festival meeting each March. The race, for five-year-old horses and over, is contested over a distance of just over three-and-a-quarter miles, with 22 steeplechase fences to be negotiated.
The Gold Cup was not staged in 1931 and 1937 due to frost and flooding respectively. World War II caused the abandonment for two years andl foot and mouth disease put paid to the showpiece in 2001.
