The New Zealand St. Leger is a major thoroughbred horse race run at Trentham Racecourse in New Zealand on New Zealand Oaks day in March each year. Run over 2500 m, it is a test of a horse's staying ability.

Originally open just to three-year-old horses, the race is now open to both three- and four-year-olds. Although it has suffered a loss in prestige in recent years, it is still a good race for up and coming stayers, with the likes of Kerry O'Reilly and Ring Of Fire taking part in recent runnings. Among the best-known winners was Silver Knight, who won the race in 1971 prior to winning the Melbourne Cup.
