St Leger

Doncaster Racecourse
A Brief History Of St Leger
The St. Leger Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race for three-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies run over a distance of 1 mile 6 furlongs and 132 yards (2,937 metres) at Doncaster Racecourse in September. First held in 1776, it is known as "the oldest classic turf race", having eclipsed the even older Doncaster Cup as the most important race run at the course.

It is one of five classic races in the UK, and also the final leg of both the colts' and fillies' Triple Crowns.
