Champion Hurdle Overview

The Champion Hurdle is a Grade One hurdle for horses aged four or older. Run over two miles and 87 yards of the old course with eight hurdles to be jumped. It takes place on the opening day of the Festival on Tuesday, normally as the third race on the card.

First-place prize money is likely to be around the £253,000 mark. It features the best two-mile hurdlers from the UK and Ireland (and occasionally France) and is the most prestigious hurdling event in the National Hunt calendar. The winner and placed horses are likely to go on and renew rivalry at Aintree or Punchestown.

Champion Hurdle Betting Trends and Statistics

The leading trainer in the race is Nicky Henderson who has won the race nine times whilst the leading owner with the same amount of wins is J P McManus.

Three jockeys currently share the leading jockey accolade with four wins a piece and they are Tim Moloney, Barry Geraghty and Ruby Walsh.

The winner will be called the best two-mile hurdler around and is likely to return the following year to defend his or her title.

Champion Hurdle History

The first Champion Hurdle was run in 1927 with the winner awarded prize money of £365! Three horses have won the race a record three times. They are Hattons Grace (1949, 1950, 1951), Sir Ken (1952, 1953, 1954), Persian War (1968, 1969, 1970), See You Then (1985, 1986, 1987) and Istabraq (1998, 1999, 2000).

Some of the greatest hurdlers ever have won the race as well as the five named above including Hurricane Fly (2011 & 2013), Faugheen (2015), Honeysuckle (2021 & 2022) and last year’s winner Constitution Hill.
