From only £19 per person, a sporting fanatic can watch a Gloucester Rugby home match and attend a day's racing at Cheltenham. Two iconic sporting events for one amazing price.
Gloucester Rugby winger James Simpson-Daniel, jockey Sam Twiston-Davies and 2010 Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup Day winner, Pigeon Island, all linked up at Kingsholm Stadium to get the package off to a flying start.
The dates available are as follows:
The Showcase at Cheltenham on October 15th followed by Gloucester Rugby vs. Rovigo on Saturday October 16th.
Gloucester Rugby vs. Northampton Saints on Sunday December 26th and the New Year's Day event at Cheltenham.
The Festival at Cheltenham on Thursday March 17th followed by Gloucester Rugby vs. Newcastle Falcons on Saturday April 2nd.
Sinbad, who is of course, well known as a huge fan of horse racing plucked up the courage to make his way down the Kingsholm wing using four legs rather than his usual two.
He told the Gloucester Rugby website:
"It was a bit different than when I'm usually going around Kingsholm. Running around the pitch makes me a bit more tired."
"I was a bit nervous but Sam was leading Pigeon Island. If I'd been on my own with him, I wouldn't have been quite so comfortable."
"Although the stirrups were a bit short for James, he had a good position and the horse seemed happy!"
He went on to explain that he does in fact have a rugby pedigree:
"You may not believe it but I did captain my school team for three or four seasons as a flanker but I had to give it up because of my weight."
"But I'm actually a big fan of Gloucester and me and my family come here a lot."
James explained why he thought the ticket was such a good deal.
"I think it's great. If you like your racing and your rugby, then you can get one of these Super Sporting Tickets and from only £19. In this area, a lot of people go to both so it's great value."
"And for anyone who hasn't been to either, what better way to experience both sports? Cheltenham which is, in my eyes, the best course in the country and Kingsholm, one of the most passionate rugby venues."
17 year old Sam has quickly made a name for himself in racing circles and is currently 5th in the jockey standings but still seeking to improve.
"Consistency is the main thing for me and making every ride one of my best rides. I've had a lot of support from various trainers and had some good rides and I'm always looking to progress."
