The first day of The Festival features the most important hurdle race of the season, the Stan James Champion Hurdle, won in 2016 by the wonder mare Annie Power. She scored in a course record time of 3m 45.10s, eclipsing the previous record of 3m 45.25s set by Jezki in 2014 and became the first mare since Flakey Dove in 1994 to win the Champion Hurdle and only the fourth in the race’s history.
