Best social media posts from Ladies Day at Cheltenham Festival

It’s that time of year again when hundreds of thousands of people flock to the town of Cheltenham and its famous race course for the Cheltenham Festival.

A tradition for more than 150 years, the five day festival attracts upwards of 200,000 people to this small town on the edge of the Cotswolds, filling every bar, pub, restaurant and hotel and boosting the local economy by £250 million in less than a week.

There have already been countless tales of victory, financial turmoil and even some lewd behaviour by a couple of football players on a balcony.
