Barry & Sandra Kelly Memorial Novice Hurdle
The Barry & Sandra Kelly Memorial Novice Hurdle is a Grade 1 National Hunt race in Ireland. It is run in around the middle of December at Navan racecourse in Ireland, over a distance of 2 miles and 4 furlongs. The race was first run in 1999 over a distance of 2 miles, before increasing to today's distance in 2000. It was originally run as a Grade 3 race, before being given Grade 1 status in 2004. The race is usually contested by some of the season's top novice hurdlers, who usually go on to contest top races at both the Cheltenham Festival and the Punchestown Festival later in the season.
