Today's Cheltenham Festival Cancelled

Just incase anyone was thinking of going or betting today.....

The second day of the Cheltenham Festival has been cancelled because of the stormy weather at the racecourse.
Strong winds had made the marquees in the tented hospitality area unsafe and organisers were forced to call off the day's racing on safety grounds.

About 55,000 people had been due to attend the prestigious meeting at Prestbury Park on Wednesday.

Cheltenham management say that Wednesday's card will now be run across Thursday and Friday's meeting

Not surprised. It is bad here in Liverpool too. I was out at 6.00 this morning and could not believe the number of trees and braches shrewn across the roads. I'm sure many such venues will be postponed today. I feel sorry for those worst affected by the storm.

My boss will be fed up as had a big day planned there today - it's very blowy here though!
