Doncaster Leger Meeting

The final Classic of the season sees the fillies and colts come together in the St Leger Stakes at Doncaster Racecourse.

The oldest of the five Classics, the St Leger is a Group One contest for the three-year-olds who are quite possibly progressing from the Guineas or the Epsom Derby. It is run over the marathon distance of one-mile-and-six-furlongs.

Acting as the final leg of the Triple Crown for either the girls or the boys, the race forms part of a four-day meeting at Town Moor, which includes a number of juvenile races for Classic contenders the following season.

Arguably the best renewal of the Leger in recent years came in 2017 when Capri claimed first-prize honours for Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore.

In second was Crystal Ocean - who is currently ranked as the world's best horse after victory in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Talking of the royal meeting, Stradivarius - winner of the last two Gold Cups was third in 2017, with the Melbourne Cup winner Rekindling back in fourth.

The winners keep on coming with Coronet back in fifth, who landed her first Group One in France a couple of weeks ago, and Defoe - last but one in tenth, winning the Coronation Cup [G1] and the Hardwicke Stakes [G2] in the past six weeks.

Last year Kew Gardens was just too good for the filly Lah Ti Dar, and Ballydoyle could dominate again this year with a number of contenders.

The expensive yearling Japan - who won the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot could head Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck, along with Broome, Constantinople, and Sir Dragonet.

The St Leger meeting kicks off on Wednesday 11th September and concludes on Saturday 14th September.

British Champions Day

All roads lead to British Champions Day - the final day of the British flat racing calendar.

It is the culmination of the British Champions Series and features the finals of the five divisions of the series, together with a valuable one-mile handicap named the Balmoral.

It is the richest day in British racing, with more than £4 million in prize money offered across the six races back in 2016.

The marathon championship kicks it all off, with a big sprint over six, a final for the milers, a contest for the fillies and mares over a mile-and-a-half, and the Champion Stakes to announce the champion of the season over ten furlongs.

Staying with the primary word, this meeting is known to sign off legends before they head to stud, including the greatest of them all - Frankel.

The unbeaten colt won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at the 2011 meeting (one-mile), and a year later completed his fourteen-race career with victory in the Champion Stakes at the 2012 meeting.

The crowd of 32,000 at that meeting was a modern-day autumn flat racing record in the UK.

Many horses may end their British careers here before completing their profiles aboard at the Arc or Breeders Cup meetings, including last year with Roaring Lion who won the QEII and went onto contest the Breeders Cup Classic.

Champions Day takes place at Ascot on Saturday 19th October.

Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe meeting

Racing royalty gather for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Paris Longchamp, Europe's final major contest of the season.

A Group One over a mile-and-a-half, the race typically takes place on the first Sunday in October.

Popularly referred to as the 'Arc', it is Europe's second most prestigious horse race after the Epsom Derby and the world's second richest turf race behind The Everest.

Its roll of winners features multiple champions of recent era's, including the filly Enable who is going for a record-breaking hat-trick this season after wins in 2017 and 2018.

Treve is the only other dual winner of the race in the 21st century, but everything currently seems to be working in John Gosden's five-year-old's favour, ahead of a new pillar of history later in the year.

Found and Golden Horn have ensured it is has been a race dominated by the Brits and Irish in the last few seasons, and it currently looks more of the same at the moment.

The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe forms a busy weekend of racing in the French capital, with also the Group One l'Abbaye for the sprinters, the 'la Foret' for the milers and the 'l'Opera' for the fillies and mares.

The two day meeting in France commences on the 5th October and concludes on the 6th.

Breeders Cup Meeting

One of America's biggest race meetings of the season is the Breeders Cup meeting that spans across two days from November 1st-2nd and this year will be held at Santa Anita racecourse.

The prestigious meeting in the US shows off the best the country has to offer with their racehorses, with British Irish and French raiders always pay a big part with plenty of countries battling it out against each other.

It is seen as the final big race meeting of the flat season for many with horses being retired or finishing for the season after the two day event.

There has been some spectacular races in the past at this meeting with last season showing off many of them with the big races on the card being:

  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf
  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (new from 2018)
  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile
  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint
  • $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Sprint
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Distaff
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf
  • $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile
  • $4 million Breeders' Cup Turf
  • $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic

Big names from England that have gone over to compete in the past include Enable, Roaring Lion, Magical and Line Of Duty to name a few with this seasons star name from England looking likely to the superstar sprinter Battaash.
