  • If Cheltenham doesn’t quite come up trumps for you this week, you can relive the glories of the past from your mobile phone. Weatherbys has brought out new ringtones, featuring commentaries of the nation’s favourite races.

    Sir Peter O’Sullevan, 90, has recorded the commentaries of household names — such as Red Rum, Shergar and Best Mate — and the proceeds will go to charity.

    “When I hung up my microphone over 10 years ago, the thought of my commentaries being heard over a mobile phone would have been extraordinary,” said Sir Peter.

    “The ringtones give a chance to a new generation of racing enthusiasts as well as lifelong fans to hear some of our sport’s most glorious moments every time their phone rings — with charity benefiting at the same time.”

    The charities are the Sir Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust and the Weatherbys Charitable Foundation.

    Weatherbys Ventures chief executive Nick Craven said: “This is such a fun and exciting idea with racing’s most recognisable voice… We hope that the phones across the country will be ringing with the sound of Sir Peter’s voice.”
