New Zealand St. Leger

The New Zealand St. Leger is a major thoroughbred horse race run at Trentham Racecourse in New Zealand. Run over 2500m, it is a test of a horse's staying ability.

Originally open just to three year old horses, the race is now open to both three and four year olds. Although it has suffered a loss in prestige in recent years, it is still a good race for up and coming stayers, with the likes of Kerry O'Reilly and Ring Of Fire taking part in recent runnings.
