Tipperary Hurdle Trends
Thu, Aug 8th, 2013

The Tipperary Hurdle takes place on the first Sunday of October at Tipperary Racecourse. It is a Grade 2 hurdle over 2 miles with contenders hoping to graduate into Cheltenham Champion Hurdle contenders. Istabraq was the lasy horse to double up.  Go Native, Harchibald and Intersky Falcon also feature on the roll of honour. Dessie Hughes has earmarked this race for the sesaonal debut of the 2013 Triumph Hurdle winner - Our Conor.

The fixture features a mixed jumps and flat card with a Group 3 ( Concorde Stakes) and Listed race on the flat plus Grade 3 Novice Hurdles and Chases supporting the Tipperary Hurdle. It is billed locally as Tipperary Super Sunday.
