The Fitzdares Club Loves The Peterborough Chase

The Fitzdares Club Loves The Peterborough Chase is the fifth race that will take place at The International 2021, just a few weeks before Christmas this Winter.

The Cheltenham International meeting is a two-day National Hunt event that presents the best in the business, with the fastest horses, the most talented jockeys and the most experienced trainers trying to cash in on the 15 races that are on offer throughout this magnificent occasion.

Featured across these two days are The Unibet Handicap Steeple Chase on Day One and The Unibet International Hurdle on Day Two, as well as The Caspian Caviar Gold Cup on Day Two.

Although you’d usually expect a Gold Cup to be the centre of attention at a horse racing meeting, it is in fact The Unibet International Hurdle that gathers the most attention at The International as the most prestigious race of the occasion.

The Cheltenham International meeting 2021 at Cheltenham Racecourse is scheduled to take place this December, from Friday the 10th until Saturday the 11th.
