MERRY CHRISTMAS... AND A BOXING DAY BONANZA FROM RACING UK

Thursday 24 December 2015

Merry Christmas from everyone at Racing UK!

We hope you have a great day tomorrow, wherever you are. We’re also excited about tomorrow, but we can’t help having one eye on Boxing Day – when the racing explodes back into action with a whopping five fixtures on the channel!

Kempton Park hosts the first day of its William Hill Winter Festival, headlined by the famous King George VI Chase. The Grade 1 feature race looks set to be a cracker, contested by some of the best staying chasers around, with Cue Card challenging for the revamped £1million Chase Triple Crown against the impressive likes of Don Cossack, Vautour, Smad Place and reigning champion Silviniaco Conti. The superstar weekend continues on Sunday, with Sprinter Sacre and Sire De Grugy going head-to-head in the Grade 2 Desert Orchid Chase.

Racing UK is the only channel showing all 12 races live from Kempton’s two-day festival. Wetherby is also set to stage the two-day 188Bet Yorkshire Christmas Meeting, featuring the 188Bet Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase on Saturday. There is plenty more Jumps action on Boxing Day too. Market Rasen's six-race card includes the Clugston Lincolnshire National, plus Huntingdon and Wincanton host another 14 races – all live and exclusive on Racing UK!
