Punters Wagered £74.6 Million On Cheltenham Festival

Earlier this week it was reported that punters wagered £74.6 million on the Cheltenham Festival horse races.

The series of races lasted four days, and the amount wagered was up 30% from the same race last year. The first day of the races saw the most action, while the biggest bet put in was worth £98,000.

This year, the races were sponsored by betting firm BetFred, who saw its name as the title sponsor for the 2014 BetFred Gold Cup.
