VIDEO-St Leger Festival racing launch

The start of the St Leger Festival began on Friday, September 5, and the Doncaster town crier was there to announce the special racing event.

The official launch was held outside the Red Lion pub in Market Place – the site of the historical beginnings of the event – and a crowd gathered to witness the occasion.
