HUGE SUCCESS AT VIRTUAL CHELTENHAM GOLD CUP EVENT Date: 20/03/2017

Over 90 guests thoroughly enjoyed Huddersfield Town’s Virtual Cheltenham Gold Cup event on Friday 17 March 2017 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The event, sponsored by Northern Commercials and held in partnership with See It Now Sports, kicked off with some live Irish music to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, which helped get everyone in the mood for an afternoon of racing.

All seven races were shown live including the Gold Cup and guests were able to use the special bookmaking facilities to skip all the queues at the bookies!

Tipsters were on hand to provide the guests with detailed information on both horses and jockeys for specific races and explained who they thought would win, which helped a number of people walk away with a lot of winnings!

In between the races, comedian Pete Emmett kept the guests entertained whilst they also took part in raffles and auctions.

A licensed bar was also available to guests in the Fantastic Media Suite.

Commercial Events Executive Katie Barraclough commented:

“One again this year’s Virtual Cheltenham Gold Cup event was a huge success and the feedback I have received has been very positive.

“The guests were thoroughly entertained all afternoon whether that be through the races or the entertainment and some of them walked away with a lot of winnings.

“I would like to thank Northern Commercials and See It Now Sports for making this event possible and their continued support.”
