The most important day in Doncaster’s social and sporting calendar is without a doubt the day of the St Leger, when crowds flock to the town to enjoy a day’s top quality racing. Horse racing and the St Leger are the subjects of many images in the collection of Doncaster Museum Service, but none capture the excitement of a day at the races as well as this picture. You can almost hear the roar of the crowd as the horses strain to reach the finishing line.
