A highlight of the British horse racing calendar

Doncaster Racecourse, September 8th – 11th 2021

Experience Yorkshire’s Classic Horse Racing Experience

Doncaster Racecourse’s Cazoo St Leger Festival is a highlight of the Flat racing season. The Cazoo St Leger has been won by some legendary horses through the decades and jubilant crowds watch on to see a little piece of horse racing history each year. The Doncaster Racecourse Cazoo St Leger Festival is one of the most prestigious race weeks of the British horse racing calendar and an experience not to be missed!

For sheer spectacle, atmosphere and excitement, a day at Doncaster Racecourse is a tradition that is hard to beat. Racedays at Town Moor have been drawing appreciative crowds for centuries and Doncaster has long been regarded as one of the finest racecourses in Europe.

With famous faces, glitz, glamour and excitement in abundance year after year, it’s easy to see why the Cazoo St Leger Festival is a horseracing event that nobody wants to miss.

Day 1 – Leger Legends Day

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 competing in the charity race, a contest run on the straight mile.  The race has been won in the past by legends of the Weighing Room, including Sir AP McCoy, Joseph O’Brien and Julie Krone.

Day 2 – Ladies Day 

The ultimate in glitz and glamour, this is Yorkshire’s biggest social occasion. The day attracts the finest in fashion, and the stakes are set high with the Style Awards, open to all, with £1000 prize to be won, alongside a range of other goodies! This year, the Style Guide asks the Doncaster crowd to embrace #FearlessFashion and wear all the colours of the rainbow as the track looks to show thanks to the local NHS teams who have worked so hard to keep us safe and get fans back to enjoy horseracing. 

Day 3 – Doncaster Cup Day 

The penultimate day of the iconic Cazoo St Leger Festival attracts some of the most prestigious racing of the week with the Doncaster Cup, the oldest race currently run under the rules of horse racing, taking centre- stage. This year, we’re celebrating the achievements of your local heroes and all things great about Doncaster by launching the search for the ‘Doncaster Hero 2021’.

Day 4 – Cazoo St Leger Day

The Cazoo St Leger Festival’s flagship day brings the four days to a dramatic climax. The biggest day of the week and home to the World’s oldest Classic, the Cazoo St Leger Stakes. The showpiece race consistently attracts leading stables from across Britain and Ireland and boasts a glittering roll of honour with some of the most acclaimed horses in history.
