10:48am Friday 31st August 2012 in Sport
DONCASTER Racecourse’s Ladbrokes St Leger Festival is the biggest and most prestigious event in its racing calendar, attracting more than 60,000 guests across four days.
Beginning on Wednesday, September 12 and culminating in the Ladbrokes St Leger Day on Saturday, September 15, the 2012 meeting is set to be an extra special occasion, as racegoers from around the world converge on the course to see Camelot battle it out for a fifth successive victory and an historic Triple Crown win.
Wednesday’s raceday will see Lester Piggott, the last jockey to win the Triple Crown, return to the Town Moor course for the Leger Legends race, while Thursday’s event will see frocks and fascinators aplenty, as Ladies Day gets under way.
The real racing action gets under way on Friday, September 14 in a build-up to Saturday’s spectacle, when guests will witness history-in-the-making as Camelot takes to the track.
The Press is promoting a competition for Doncaster Racecourse and East Coast trains to give one lucky winner the chance to win two tickets to the historic Saturday raceday, including rail travel with East Coast.
Two runners-up will also win a pair of tickets to the Friday meeting. To be in with a chance of winning this fantastic competition, answer the following question:
What is the name given to the feat of winning the Newmarket 2,000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and the St Leger?
a) Triple Crown b) Triple Win c) Triple Stakes
