Featuring the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle
Featuring the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle supported by two more Grade 1 races, two Grade 2 races and another two competitive handicaps. The Irish Champion Hurdle was won for five consecutive years by the great Hurricane Fly, who is immortalised at Leopardstown in a life-size bronze sculpture commissioned by his owners. Willie Mullins continued his domination of this race in 2016 with the impressive Faugheen but Henry de Bromhead claimed the title most recently with Gigginstown’s Petit Mouchoir.

Featuring the Unibet Irish Gold Cup
The final day of this exciting new festival will be staged on Sunday 4th February with the Unibet Irish Gold Cup taking centre stage. Triple Gold Cup winner, Sizing John, trained by Jessica Harrington claimed the Irish Gold Cup this year and added both the Cheltenham and Punchestown Gold Cup to his victories in 2017. There is much more action on this day though as this is the only race meeting in Ireland to feature four Grade 1 races in one day, with the Deloitte Novice Hurdle, Flogas Novice Chase and Spring Juvenile Hurdle keeping the excitement going.
