Doncaster Racecourse

Doncaster Racecourse, home of the St Leger Festival every September.

Doncaster Racecourse

Home of the world’s oldest Classic contest, Doncaster is the spiritual home of racing in northern England and a much-revered track. The St Leger has been running at Doncaster in the autumn since all the way back in 1776.

Town Moor, as it is affectionately known, holds a prominent place in Britain’s Flat racing calendar staging the Lincoln Meeting in March and the November Handicap as winter sets in – the first and last meetings of the Flat turf season respectively.

The left-handed and galloping circuit is mostly flat in nature and is widely regarded to be one of the fairest tracks in the United Kingdom. There is a straight course from 5f-1m and with good drainage the turf tends to offer a fair racing surface on most occasions.
