Leading Light (Joseph O'Brien Up), winner of The G1 Ladbrokes St Leger Stakes

The 3 year old son of Montjeu, Leading Light produced sparkling gallop to wrap up Britan’s oldest Classic, the G1 Ladbrokes St Leger Stakes at Doncaster.  It was a fifth straight win for Leading Light and a first Group 1 success. Jockey Joseph O’Brien earned his first Leger win, while trainer Aidan O’Brien led in his fourth renewal. "I'm absolutely delighted," said Aidan on his feat. "He is such a solid horse and there is plenty of class there”.

The winner of the G3 Queen’s Vase, Leading Light was strongly supported as the favourite at 7-2. Fighting its way to be second in the early stages, Leading Light closed up 3 f out and was drive out by O’Brien Junior to shoot to the lead with a furlong left and slam the rivals. Talent, who was held up in rear made steady headway over the last three furlongs but the winner had stolen a march and Talent finished second. Galileo Rock finished third ahead of Libertarian.

"They obviously think a lot of him back home but he is very versatile. We could drop him back to a mile and a half for the Arc but we will have to discuss that back home," said the winning trainer Aidan about Leading Light’s next.
