Horse Racing - Irish Champion Hurdle

The most prestigious hurdle race held in Ireland each year is staged over a distance of two miles at Leopardstown racecourse in January. The only exception was in 1995, when it was run at Fairyhouse. The race is open to four-year-olds and over and is seen as an important trial for the Cheltenham Champion Hurdle.
