Cheltenham Races Concept

About The Races

In 1815 the first organised flat race took place in Cheltenham on Nottingham Hill. The popularity of the races over the next few decades had crowds of 30,000 people visiting the race course for its annual two day meeting in the month of July.

The racecourse was later moved to Prestbury Park after violent outrages, which is still the current venue, since 1831. In 1964, Racecourse Holdings Trust (now Jockey Club Racecourses) was formed to secure the future of Cheltenham. The Group now owns 13 other racecourses – a combination of Jumps, Flat, Dual Purpose and All Weather racecourses. Wholly owned in a Trust by The Jockey Club, Jockey Club Racecourses reinvests all of its profits into its 14 racecourses to ensure the continued success and development of British horse racing.

Created in photoshop, my interpretation takes inspiration from researching what the concept could look like.
