Heroes Handicap Hurdle
The Heroes Handicap Hurdle is a Grade 3 National Hunt hurdle race in Great Britain which is open to horses aged four years or older. It is run at Sandown Park over a distance of about 2 miles and 6 furlongs (4,426 metres), and during its running there are eleven hurdles to be jumped. It is a handicap race, and it is scheduled to take place each year in late January or early February.
The race was established in 1986, and it was originally run over 2 miles, 5 furlongs and 75 yards (4,293 metres). This was increased to its present length in 1993. The event's current title was introduced in 2008, prior to which it was known as the Sandown Handicap Hurdle. For much of its history the race has been sponsored by Tote Bookmakers, and its title has promoted such bets as the Tote Jackpot and the Tote Scoop6.
