  • Description

    With the graceful ease and precision of his ballet-dancing namesake Nijinsky flashed through the winning post at Doncaster yesterday to win the St Leger and collect the Triple Crown, awarded to the racehorse that wins the 200 Guineas and the Derby as well as the St Leger. He was ridden by the 34 year old veteran Lester Piggot.

    Nijinsky took the lead right from the start of the race and there never seemed any doubt that he was going to win. In second place was Meadowville and third was Politico.
