Mallard 75 Logo
With the exception of the great race itself, the star of this last years festival was undoubtedly Mallard – a true Doncaster thoroughbred! Mallard which returned to Doncaster, where she was built 75 years ago, and there were several events planned where you could get up close to Mallard and learn about the history of the magnificent A4 locomotives. For full details of the Mallard 75 activities click here.

The eyes of the world were on Doncaster as we once again celebrated our rich heritage and culture in the 10 day long St Leger Festival Week, which culminated in the oldest classic race in the world, the St Leger Stakes.
