The International - Friday

The season is in full swing, so The International offers a great opportunity to watch the stars of the sport compete at the Home of Jump racing.

Opens 10:00, First race 12:10pm, Last race 3:40pm

It's always a festive Friday at The International as racegoers are treated to the finale of the Crystal Cup. The race concludes a series of unique races across Europe which encapsulates and celebrates the rich heritage of the sport. The 2016 running saw Irish trainer Enda Bolger assert his authority over the race as Cantlow provided the trainer with his seventh success in the race.

With the festive season in full swing, it is the perfect time to entertain friends, family or clients. The International Meeting offers far more than just racing with a range of dining and hospitality options.

Post-racing entertainment
If you fancy continuing your festive celebrations into the evening then book ahead and join us in The Centaur for our Big Office Christmas Party. There will be fantastic entertainment from The Chip Shop Boys to keep the festive atmosphere alive after racing, performing a number of Christmas tunes mixed in with a few of the classics.
