Friday 9 December

THE INTERNATIONAL FRIDAY 

 

Get the party started at The International with an action packed card that has something for all Jump racing fans on Friday 9 December.

 

Join us as we will be enveloped in a sea of yellow for the launch of Tiggy’s Trust. Tiggy's Trust is a foundation that was set up in memory of Tiggy Hancock, an all-round wonderful person, talented rider, beloved daughter, adored sister and loyal friend who was taken from this world on the 16th of June 2021 at just 15 years of age.

 

We welcome everybody who is coming racing to wear an item of clothing that is yellow to support Tiggy's Trust.

 

Tiggy's Trust also have an auction where there are some fantastic lots on offer which you can view here.

 

From the the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase to the Unibet Handicap Steeple Chase, it's an important day in the Festive racing calendar and one that always delivers in the entertainment stakes. 

 

Storm Control, Cogry and the Grand National-winning Mon Mome are just some of the names to taste glory on the Friday of the International.

 

After racing, we will see the return of the Tattersalls Cheltenham December Sale which provide clients the opportunity to purchase quality English and Irish point to pointers and National Hunt Form Horses from the spring season. The sale is attached to racing and takes place after the last race.
