Lanzarote Hurdle Trends

Named after the leading hurdler of the 70’s, Lanzarote, who won the 1974 Champion Hurdle - the Coral Lanzarote Handicap Hurdle is staged at Kempton Park racecourse each January.

Run over 2m5f, with 10 hurdles to tackle, the race is always a hotly-contested affair and in the past has been won three times by trainer Gary Moore, while the Nick Williams, Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson yards are others to have won the race in recent years. Including in 2020 when we saw the Nicky Henderson-trained Burrows Edge land the prize – the yard’s third win in the race since 2013, while 12 month ago the Emma Lavelle yard won the race with 66/1 shot Boreham Bill.

Here at GeeGeez we look back at past winners and gives you the key stats to look out for ahead of the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 15th January.
