KCLR Drive’s Road to Cheltenham Preview at Connolly Redmills

We go through the winners and losers for this year's Cheltenham Racing Festival

Cheltenham 2019 is upon us.

This Tuesday through Friday, the world of horse racing descends on Cheltenham for the biggest date on the racing calendar.

It’s Ireland v England, it’s Mullins v Elliot, it’s the firm favourites romping home and the outsiders upsetting the apple cart.

On Thursday’s KCLR Drive, we took the show to Connolly’s Redmills in Kilkenny.

Part One: Redmills

For the first part of the show, I’m joined by Equine Brand Manager Jane Davis; Melanie Horsman, an equine physio with Tom Mullins’ yard; and Rebecca Watson, Equine Nutritionist at Connolly’s Redmills.

They’ve each got fascinating stories, so that’s where we begin.

Part Two: Road to Cheltenham Preview

For the second part, I’m joined on the couch by Kevin Blake (At The Races), Sally Ann Grassick (ITV) and Eddie Scally (Gowran Park) to go through the key fixtures from Tuesday’s opener to the Gold Cup on Friday. Have a listen below.
