Doncaster Racecourse
A Brief History Of Flying Childers Stakes
The Flying Childers Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race for two-year-old Thoroughbreds run over a distance of 5 furlongs (1,006 metres) at Doncaster Racecourse during the St Leger meeting in September.

It is named after the 18th century racehorse Flying Childers, a son of the Darley Arabian bred at Cantley Hall in Doncaster, who is often cited as the first truly great racehorse in the history of Thoroughbreds.
