Friday 9 - Saturday 10 December

WORLD CLASS JUMP RACING

 

Christmas comes early to Cheltenham every year, with the greatest gift of them all: two days of quality racing action at the Home of Jump Racing for The International on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 December.

 

With the festive season about to enter the home straight, Cheltenham regulars rarely leave the racecourse without a spring in their step from The International meeting.

 

With an overseas flare in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase, and more top quality action in the shape of the Unibet Handicap Steeple Chase, Unibet International Hurdle and The International Gold Cup, this two-day race meeting is a highlight of the Christmas racing calendar and kick starts the festive sporting season.
