The Festival kicks off with a bang when retired celebrities of the saddle dust off their breeches and return to action in the feature event competing in the flat race over the straight mile which helps raise money for the the Northern Racing College and Jack Berry House, a rehabilitation facility for injured jockeys.

The Leger Legends Race

The Leger Legends Race is the only British charity race for ex-professional jockeys. It takes place on the first day of the St Leger Festival at Doncaster Racecourse and has become the feature race on that day, capturing the attention of the national racing media and increasing the number of racegoers to Doncaster significantly.The race, which was first run in 2010, is a focus for a wonderful charity lunch – arguably the most entertaining and fun racing lunch in the calendar.The Injured Jockeys Fund Jack Berry House is the other beneficiary of the event.The funds for NRC are being directed towards additional learner accommodation which is a necessary development for NRC to maximise the number of trained stable staff it can provide for the industry, as well as accommodating fee-paying course attendees on-site.
