SINGAPORE ST LEGER

The Singapore St Leger was staged for 13 years before it was discontinued after 1964. It was such a gruelling contest - being run over one-and-three quarter miles (about 2,820m) - that there was always a lack of entries.

The only horse to win the St Leger twice was DREAMBOAT, trained by Milton Sullivan, who was successful in 1960 and 1961.

In 1963, only six Class 1 stayers were entered and the Singapore Turf Club has to call for entries from Class 2 horses to make up a decent-sized field.

Eventually, 11 horses faced the starter. And as it turned out, Class 2 stayer AJNOS, trained by Eddie van Breukelen and ridden by "Mickey" Donnelly won the race in a blanket finish. AJNOS is the name of Eddie's wife, spelt backwards.

The final St Leger in 1964 was won by MOVIEGOER with Des Coleman astride.
