With the oldest of the five British Classic races taking place at the weekend it is well worth taking advantage of BetFred’s £50 free bet offer. The St. Leger stakes is a firm favourite of racing fans and this year sees the 236th time the race has been run. Originally known as ‘A Sweepstake of 25 Guineas’ the race was devised by Anthony St. Leger an Army Officer and Politician who lived near Doncaster.
This year’s race could see a rewriting of history as Camelot competes to become the first horse since Nijinsky to win the triple crown. Although Camelot has been overshadowed by the wonder horse Frankel this season, many believe the colt is on course to add to his 2000 Guineas and Derby wins and take the Triple Crown by winning the St. Leger Stakes.
The St Leger over 1m 6f is a serious test of stamina for Camelot but class and speed has him head and shoulders above everything else. And he can go one better than Nijinksky by adding the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe next month, a race in which Ninjinsky was unluckily beaten.
So as the racing fraternity holds it’s breath over Camelot’s chances you can get in on the action by taking advantage of BetFred’s £50 free bet sign up offer and win big along side this phenomenal horse.
