Doncaster St Leger Festival Day 1

The Doncaster 2022 St Leger Festival’s first day takes place on Wednesday, September 7th at Doncaster Racecourse.

The 1st day of the Doncaster St Leger Festival is called Leger Legends Day which features the Scarbrough Stakes.

The Cazoo St Leger Festival kicks off with a bang when retired celebrities of the saddle dust off their breeches and return to action in the feature event by competing in the charity race, a contest run on the straight mile.

With lots of runners and some tricky handicaps, we take a look at the runners, and riders and give our selections.
