Greatwood, the current sponsor of the event, is a charity for the welfare of retired racehorses and has supported the Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham since 2003. The Greatwood Handicap Hurdle is a relatively new addition to the National Hunt/Hurdle calendar, having been inaugurated in 1988; and it has been hosted under a number of different names over the years. Originally the race was given a Listed Status but it quickly rose in the ranks due to its great popularity and the calibre of horses attracted by the solid challenge the Greatwood Handicap Hurdle represents. Since 2004, the Greatwood Handicap Hurdle is classified as a Grade 3 event.
