Today, 20 August, the line-up has been announced for the 10th ‘Leger Legends Race’, The Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes, to be held at Doncaster Racecourse on Wednesday 11th September at 3.35pm.

It includes former six-time British champion jockey, Kieren Fallon who is joined by former stars of the National Hunt weighing room including recently retired jockeys Noel Fehily and Andrew Thornton, who both rode over 1000 winners apiece.  Fallon says:

“‘I am looking forward to riding in the race in its 10th year. It is for two very worthy causes in the Injured Jockeys Fund and National Horseracing College and I am pleased to support them, as well of course as trying to win the race!”.

He will be trying to emulate Sir Anthony McCoy, President of the Injured Jockeys Fund, who won the race in 2015, on his first ride in public since retirement.

Since its inauguration in 2010 over £1million has been raised for the Injured Jockeys Fund’s Jack Berry House and the National Horseracing College (formerly Northern Racing College).

Geoff Turnbull, sponsor and owner of Elwick Stud says:

‘We’re delighted to be sponsoring the tenth running of the Leger Legends Stakes. We recognise the fantastic work carried out by the committee in organising an event to raise vital funds for Jack Berry House and the National Horseracing College, who provide excellent training and support to make this fantastic sport possible. The Mondialiste Leger Legends Classified Stakes has a very fitting venue as Doncaster was the first racecourse the horse carried our colours at.”
