ELDAR ELDAROV, last season's G1 St Leger hero, makes it a Leger double with a dominant victory in today's G1 Irish St Leger at The Curragh!
ELDAR ELDAROV proved one of the highlights of the season for the stable last year, when running out a scintillating winner of the G1 St Leger at Doncaster Racecourse - securing a 20th G1 success for Varian Stable, and a first Classic triumph for jockey David Egan. The four-year-old son of Dubawi has run some strong races in defeat this season, and the whole team at Carlburg Stables were delighted to see him return to the winners enclosure today, adding the Irish equivalent to the Doncaster Classic he sparkled in 12 months ago.
Proper performance! 👊— Racing TV (@RacingTV) September 10, 2023

Roger said: “It’s a big thrill to win a race like the Irish St Leger and I’m delighted to get Eldar Eldarov winning again. He’s run some great races in defeat this year and it’s nice to win two Legers.
“He’s entered up in France on Arc weekend and there is the two-mile race at Ascot. We might consider Ascot.
“He seems to be really best at a mile and six furlongs, but there aren’t too many of those races around. He deserves to run one more time this year and it’s most likely Ascot.”
Huge congratulations to owners KHK Racing.
