The Ladbrokes St Leger Festival is the jewel in the crown of horseracing in Yorkshire and the showpiece of Doncaster’s social calendar.

Racegoers enjoy a delightful blend of history, quality racing and live entertainment across the four-day racing extravaganza.

The 2013 renewal takes place from Wednesday, 11 September through to Saturday, 14 September inclusive.

Since the first running of the St Leger in 1776, racegoers from all over the country have been drawn to Doncaster to capture a taste of the unique atmosphere. The famous Festival is one of the highlights of the Flat racing calendar.

The crescendo builds to Saturday, when the flagship event – the illustrious Ladbrokes St Leger – takes centre stage.

The meeting also features a number of high-class supporting races, highlights being the Crown Hotel At Bawtry Scarbrough Stakes on the Crown Hotel Bawtry Opening Day (Wednesday), the DFS Park Hill Stakes on DFS Ladies’ Day (Thursday), the Speedy Services Doncaster Cup on Speedy Services Doncaster Cup Day (Friday) and the At The Races Champagne Stakes and OLBG Park Stakes on Ladbrokes St Leger Day, Saturday, 14 September.
