Firbeck is only a 30 minute or so walk across the fields for me from Doncaster. I took a picture of the village sign and noticed horse racing on it. Digging a bit further I found out that the St Ledger was first run at Firbeck but wasn’t called that. The race was named after Anthony St Ledger who owned Parkhill house at Firbeck a country estate of 500 acres. Parkhill house no longer exists, other than the gatehouse, which you will find by the telephone box.
I am told that. Every sporting man and Turfite has heard of the Park Hill Stakes.
All the best
