The 2022 Cheltenham Festival kicks off on March 15 and it’s shaping up to be a week of racing that bettors and racing enthusiasts alike can’t wait for. I’m sure you all have your favorite aspects of Cheltenham, be it former Gold Cup winners, owners like JP McManus who like to place huge bets on your favorite jockeys.
Which brings me to Katie Walsh, the Betweg ambassador, who knows a little or too much about horse racing, from a family that has seen tremendous success, and what it takes to be a jockey at the Cheltenham Festival.
Plus, she literally works with West Ham FC players so they can learn what it takes to be a winning jockey.
How is the atmosphere in the weighing room.
How to know when to move when you get home.
The relationship with other jockeys they compete against.
The feeling of being the first to come home to a favourite.
See how West Ham players Jarrod Bowen, Aaron Creswell and Mark Noble get honest as they swap the beautiful game for the gritty, top-level racing.
