Where better to begin than with the money! Over £600,000,000 is expected to be wagered during the 4 days of racing. When 500 horses will compete for a total prize pool of £3.4 million. When the first race starts the ‘Cheltenham Roar’ will peak at a deafening 130 decibels and 200,000 pints of Guinness will be need to soothe those sore throats.
