Yorkshire St Leger
The Yorkshire St Leger is a greyhound competition that takes place at Doncaster and is run over 661m and can attract some of the elite staying performers in the sport, and having been formerly run at Stainforth it's now one of the highlights of the calendar at the Yorkshire venue, and usually takes place in the middle of September and can often been seen taking centre stage in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Attracting a stellar list of runners, the Yorkshire St Leger will see the six-bend performers battle it out to qualify for the blue riband event, which is a valuable prize targeted by trainers and owners from across the country and the Michael Walsh-trained Larkhill Bird was one of the classiest winners of the event, and managed to not only win the event in 2004, but that raider retained the crown with aplomb in 2005 and is one of the most successful greyhounds in the competition's history.
Charlie Lister trained the winner three times between 2010 and 2013 with Carbarns Tom, Lonely Boy and Fear Emoski all storming to glory, while Millwards Teddy was another notable winner of the Yorkshire St Leger in 2015, and it's sure to be an event that grows in stature and will provide some vital clues for the St Leger, which takes place later in the calendar.
