Camelot could make additional history for O'Brien in St Leger

Apart from Camelot's attempt to become the 16th colt to win the English Triple Crown and the first since Nijinsky in 1970, the Group 1 St Leger could produce a statistic unique in Turf history. Victory in Saturday's race would make Aidan O'Brien the first trainer to win all five British classics in a single season.

The English Triple Crown in focus

The English Triple Crown comprises the Group 1 Two Thousand Guineas over Newmarket's straight mile in early May, the Group 1 Derby over Epsom's switchback 1 1/2 miles in June and the Group 1 St Leger over Doncaster's sweeping extended 1 3/4 miles in September. To win all three a horse must own speed, stamina, soundness and durability as well as class.
