William Hill St Leger Festival – St Leger Day
The flagship day of the William Hill St Leger Festival, St Leger Day attracts more than 25,000 racegoers to Doncaster Racecourse to witness the St Leger Stakes, the world’s oldest classic horse race.
Bringing the four-day festival to a dramatic climax, the St Leger Stakes 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.
As well as the St Leger stakes, the Festival’s showpiece day also features top-class races including the Group 2 Champagne Stakes and the fast and furious, ultra-competitive sprint – the Portland Handicap.
In addition to world-class racing, the William Hill St Leger Day is an unbelievable social occasion featuring fashion, live entertainment, music and plenty of Pimms and Champagne in the sunshine.
Just a ten-minute drive from the Doncaster Racecourse, the Crown Hotel Bawtry is ideally situated if you need accommodation for this event.
