might as well rename it after gordon elliot than anything to do with religion in ireland

Now now gazo
We all know St Patrick was Welsh

Merely co-incidental that his day often falls whilst Cheltenham is on , so may as well make it the whole week

Think of it in terms of the former "christmas" recently crowned mid-winter festival. ExcitedLaugh

The rip-off festival ! The prices for restaurants are an absolute joke, they built a new pub style restaurant and charge over £300 for an average pub meal ...

Most of the prize money goes to owners so it would be interesting to see a breakdown of that. Rich Ritchie is American for instance, while in UK, the majority of flat horses are owned by foreigners. Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith are English, so depending on shareholdings, only around 30% of Coolmore prizemoney stays in Ireland.
