What is the WBX Hurdling Triple Crown?
The WBX Hurdling Triple Crown ties together the three most prestigious two mile British hurdle races in the calendar like never before.
Offering a £1million bonus for any horse that can secure victories in Newcastle's Fighting Fifth, Kempton's Christmas Hurdle, and the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival – the WBX Hurdling Triple Crown will offer a unique bonus that will be shared not just with winning owners, but also with the trainer, stable lad and stable staff connected with any successful horse.
The WBX Hurdling Triple Crown will actively encourage the leading two mile hurdlers to compete in Britain's most important prestigious hurdle races. It will also attempt to widen the appeal of National Hunt racing, create increased media interest in the sport’s biggest stars and those connected with them, and enable jump racing fans to finally have a benchmark to measure the greatest hurdlers of each generation.
Up to now, only one horse has ever won the Fighting Fifth, Christmas Hurdle and Champion Hurdle in the same season. Step forward the brilliant Kribensis, who achieved this feat in 1989.
The WBX bonus will be distributed as follows:
- Winning Owner £700,000
- Winning Trainer £150,000
- Successful Stable Lad £100,000
- Successful Stable Staff £50,000
