So that’s it for one more year – the 2012 Cheltenham Festival has been and gone and the racecourse is back to what passes for normal operations. There’s no Guinness left in Cheltenham and as usual, the bookmakers were the big winners although couple of runners gave them good reason to be nervous.
We all know how big the Cheltenham Festival is, but just to make the point it ranks second in prize money terms behind the Grand National. It’s the best known National Hunt gathering and Cheltenham has been its almost permanent home for more than one hundred years. It features a number of races whose names have become familiar even to those who limit their gambling to one or two occasions a year. Who hasn’t heard of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the Champion Hurdle and the big one – the Cheltenham Gold Cup? Read the rest of this entry »

There are some strict rules for naming horses and this can lead to some enterprising and amusing equine names, some which make it and some which don’t…
A Brief outline to the rules of racing horse naming:
- All horse owners who wish their horse to compete must register their names with Weatherbys, the official administrator of the horse racing.
- The Weatherbys register has about 250,000 names which consists of horses that are currently training or raced during the last 20 years.
- Famous racehorse names are not allowed to be used twice so there will never be another Shergar, Red Rum or Arkle even though they are all deceased.
- No name can contain more than 18 letters including spaces, names aren’t allowed whose pronunciation or spelling is obscene or insulting including spoonerisms or rude foreign words.
Love The Races has just published a list of banned Horse names. It’s a shame in a way that they didn’t make it.
