The Class 1 Totepool National Spirit Hurdle with £80,000 prize money is sure to attract some of the country’s best talent! This Grade 2 race in its 52nd year is the most prestigious in our calendar and is supported by an excellent undercard featuring 3 trophies!
Last year the Totepool National Spirit Hurdle was won by Lil Rockerfeller who went on to race in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham and runner up Ubak also had amazing success in the Grade 3 Handicap Hurdle at the Grand National Raceday at Aintree!
This year we will continue to see the highest class horses looking to add their name to the list of winners from this esteemed race.
The undercard features the Josh Gifford Cup, The Certain Justice Challenge Trophy and the Whitelaw Challenge Cup!
The dual winning Champion Hurdler, National Spirit, won 32 of his 85 starts and five of those were at Fontwell, most notably in the Rank Challenge Cup, which he won 3 years in succession in 1948-50.
