Cheltenham this weekend

Makes me want to go, though I'll be elsewhere - A traditional country fair with falcons, hounds, and stands; a steeplechase over hedges, rails and banks; and the Paddy Power Gold Cup.

The races go by awfully fast, but if you know the history of the horses (nearly as complex as royal genealogy) I'm told it's the most absorbing eternal few minutes in the world.
