On Friday at The International in 2018, we celebrated the official Christmas Jumper Day and encouraged racegoers to don their favourite festive jumper. Racegoers had the chance to win on the spot prizes for the most fun and festive jumper. Prizes included a pair of tickets to any of the forthcoming race meetings including The Festival™ presented by Magners

 

The finale of the Crystal Cup series takes place on Friday of The International and in 2018 was won by the Jamie Snowdon-trained Fact Of The Matter having ran impressively over the cross country fences at The November Meeting.

 

Tattersalls Cheltenham will be in the Tattersalls Sales Arena after racing on Friday of The International.
