A Group 1 flat horse race that is participated by fillies and colts that are thoroughbred and are three years of age is called the St. Leger Stakes. It is raced over one mile, six furlongs and 132 yards at Doncaster. This event is scheduled to be held yearly in the month of September. The St. Leger Stakes was established way back in the year 1776 and is considered as the oldest among the five classics of Britain. Since it is the oldest, it is the last race to be run and the distance that needs to be covered is much longer compared to the other 4. This race is the English Triple Crown’s final leg which is started by the 2000 Guineas and is continued with the Derby. Since this follows from the 1,000 Guineas and Oaks, it additionally wraps up the Fillies’ Triple Crown.
This kind of race seldom include Triple Crown competitors in the previous decades, and with only Camelot, the 2012 2000 Guineas and Derby winner, as the only one who attained the second place in the race in the recent years. Since the race is the English Flat Racing season’s final classic, it is obvious that it a lot of people are interested in participating in St Leger Betting since it attracts a huge betting market. Also, as soon as the Epsom Oaks and Epsom Derby outcomes are known, the ante-post market becomes very energetic. Apparently, this type of race is regarded to have one of racing’s most active Ante-Post betting markets.
