The Cheltenham Gold Cup

The Cheltenham Festival is the most popular horse racing event in the world. The festival is part of the National Hunt racing calendar in the United Kingdom, with prize money second only to the Grand National. It is an event where many of the best British and Irish trained horses race to an extent which is relatively rare during the rest of the season. Large amounts of money are gambled during Cheltenham Festival week, with hundreds of millions of pounds being bet over the four days.

Cheltenham is often noted for its atmosphere, most notably the “Cheltenham roar,” which refers to the enormous amount of noise the crowd generates as the starter raises the tape for the first race of the festival. Capturing that atmosphere, as well as the rich history of Cheltenham. Despite being such a huge event on the sporting calendar, not many infographics have been created around it so one is especially unique and sure to attract attention.
