St Leger 2014
St Leger Betting Guide – 13th September 2014
The oldest horse racing Classic in the world comes to Town Moor in Doncaster each September, the St Leger has been taking place each year since 1776 and is the final British Classic of the Flat racing calendar. The St Leger Festival lasts for four days but there is only one race that attracts the thousands of spectators to Yorkshire each year and is the biggest racing day for the region bar none.
In recent years we have seen Camelot attempt to win the Triple Crown, only to fail in the last leg, in 2011 Masked Marvel won the race for trainer John Gosden in a record time and who can forget Bollin Eric in 2002, the last time a Yorkshire trained horse won the Classic and the whole place erupted. The St Leger always has a story and a reputation of the hardest of the Classics to win for 3yo thoroughbred.
