TWO of Doncaster’s most famous world exports are set to meet at this year’s St Leger Festival.
Racing and railways will combine at September’s four-day spectacular, with a race set to be named in honour of one of the town’s most famous locomotives.
The Flying Scotsman Stakes will be run at Town Moor on September 13 - the third day of the racing extravaganza, the biggest event on the Doncaster social calendar.
Mark Spincer, managing director of Doncaster Racecourse, said the link-up would be ideal to showcase the borough’s heritage to the rest of the world. He said: “Doncaster is synonymous with racing and railways.”
