BIG PARTY. The world renowned Cheltenham Gold Festival over in England has suffered from typical cloudy weather, but provided terrific steeplechase racing as usual.
Irishman Ruby Walsh seemed to win every big race including the feature – the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Here, Walsh rides Kauto Star up the final straight to the finish post to win the Gold Cup Steeple Chase during the fourth day of the Cheltenham Festival on March 13, 2009.

Kauto Star has become the first horse to regain the Gold Cups having first won the prestigious event in 2007.
