The Most Prestigious Live Horse Racing
Bringing the four-day Cazoo St Leger festival to a dramatic climax, the Group 1 Cazoo St Leger Stakes attracts some of the leading trainers and horses from across the country.
Boasting a glittering roll of honour, which is littered with some of the most acclaimed horses in history, the race is the final leg of the esteemed British ‘Triple Crown’. Comprising of three British Classic races – the Newmarket 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and, finally, the St Leger, winning all three Group 1 horse racing fixtures is considered the greatest achievement in Thoroughbred horse racing and was last achieved by Nijinsky in 1970.
Alongside the Cazoo St Leger Stakes, the final day of the Cazoo St Leger festival also features top-class horse races including the Champagne Stakes and the fast and furious, ultra-competitive sprint - the Portland Handicap.
This highlight of the Doncaster events calendar will prove incredibly popular. They are expecting tickets to this year’s Cazoo St Leger to sell out. If tickets are still available, advance tickets close at midnight the day before racing.
