The Golden Miller Champagne bar at Cheltenham Racecourse has been reopened by former winning jockey Mick Fitzgerald, following a £900,000 refurbishment of the bar and catering facilities.
Golden Miller, named after the only racehorse to have won both of the UK's premier steeplechase races (the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National) in the same year, was relaunched by Fitzgerald who opened the bar's first bottle of Champagne on the opening day of the racecourse's jump racing season.
Gareth Evans, general manager for Jockey Club Catering at Cheltenham Racecourse, said that the capital expenditure being invested in all the bars and restaurants at Cheltenham Racecourse - including the new permanent bar and catering facilities in the Best Mate enclosure - will help to enhance the race day experience for all levels of racegoer.
"By placing the demands of customers first, we are helping to drive revenues for Jockey Club Racecourses. Key to this is improving the catering experience for racegoers and developing facilities," he added.
JCC is a joint venture between Compass Group and Jockey Club Racecourses.
