THE GREAT ST LEGER
Lord Lyon won the St. Leger Stakes by sheer g.imenes; and stamina, sis he had done at Epsom, and silenced his detractors for ever by accomplishing West AuMra ian's and Gladiateuis' triumphs, in winning the Two Thousand, Derby, and St. Leger. The value of the stakes was .£5825. The enmene^s ot the sting^le, the evceilen -eof theji>ekeydii|>, the nearness ot the finish, and the enmusias v and excitement of the tm rids that swaimed the Tow n Moor, will cause the St. I.e^er of IS6G to stand out as one of the most prominent events in the annals of the English turf.
