The 2021 Fixture List has now been published in part, with the months from January to April confirmed and the majority of the fixtures through the remainder of the year scheduled, but subject to change.
It’s not long now until the 2020 St. Leger Stakes race, which will take place on Saturday, 12th September, and which forms part of the larger, four-day St. Leger Festival.
The St. Leger Stakes will run September 9th to 12th at Doncaster Racecourse and will be one of the biggest festivals to take place after horse racing restarted in June.
Unfortunately, this year’s event will not see the average 58,000 attendees turn out as all of the races will be held behind closed doors.
