Ladbrokes St Leger Stakes (Group 1)
3yo, 1m6f132y

HARBOUR LAW caused a humongous upset to win a dramatic Ladbrokes St Leger, with hot-favourite Idaho unseating Seamie Heffernan when slipping with over three furlongs to run.

Victory gave Laura and Ian Mongan’s 20-strong stable a fairytale success and a first Classic triumph for an Epsom-based yard since Right Tack won the 1969 2,000 Guineas.

Sent off at 22-1, Harbour Law looked to have a mountain to climb on ratings but the Queen’s Vase runner-up took his form to a new echelon as he swept down the outside to give Mongan a first success at Group level and a dream Classic victory.

More to run . . .
