St Leger DaySaturday 16th September 2017

The St Leger Festival’s flagship day brings the four days to a dramatic climax. The biggest day of the week and home to the World’s oldest Classic, the St Leger Stakes. The showpiece race consistently attracts some of the leading stables across the country and boasts a glittering roll of honour which is littered with some of the most acclaimed horses in history.

The British ‘Classics’ are five races known as the most prestigious in the horse racing calendar – the 2000 and 1000 Guineas start the season off at Newmarket, before the Derby and Oaks at Epsom in June. The Doncaster highlight forms the final leg of the Classic British ‘Triple Crown’ – an accolade last claimed in 1970 by Nijinsky.

A well-known racing saying states that “The fastest horse wins the Guineas; the luckiest the Derby – and the best horse wins the St Leger.” See the best on Town Moor this September.
