Cheltenham Racecourse

Saturday 14 December 2019

With Christmas just around the corner, there's even more reason to celebrate on December 14 with Cheltenham's winter frolic: The International. From festive family get-togethers to Christmas parties, this Cheltenham favourite is the place to enjoy high-calibre racing this holiday season. 


Day Two of The International is the perfect way to get you into the festive spirit. With Christmas just around the corner, come along and enjoy a day of racing and finish off your last minute shopping with our variety of carefully selected trade stands for you to buy those bespoke and quality gifts. We also have live music being performed across the course.


Saturday of The International features a key race on the road to The Festival in March, the Unibet International Hurdle. The 2017 rendition went to the popular My Tent Or Yours who had his day in the sunshine under Barry Geraghty. It was a closely fought battle between 2016 winner, The New One as they charged up the Cheltenham Hill as one.
