We are off to the races today, Cheltenham races, ahead of the Cheltenham Festival with Brough Scott, one of Britain’s most respected journalists and broadcasters. Brough will be at the festival working for ITV racing but for the next hour enjoy his golden memories of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Brough reveals his top three Gold Cup winners, best horse never to win the race, best training performance, best ride, and his favourite memory. Plus, you will hear a wealth of fascinatiing stories, about the horses, trainers, and jockeys he has seen since the early 1950s. From Winter to Townend, Vincent O’Brien to Willie Mullins and Mont Tremblant to Galopin Des Champs, Brough looks back at them all. For me it was a delight to hear Brough reminisce about the blue riband of steeplechasing and If you are a racing fan, I hope you are, this is one show not to be missed.   Interview date 28 February 2024.
