UPCOMING MAJOR HORSE RACING FESTIVALS
EPSOM DOWNS - THE DERBY - 3rd JUNE 2017
The Derby: The ‘Blue Riband’ of British Flat Racing. Taking place at Epsom Downs Racecourse, with prize money standing at f £1.325m, The Derby has one of the biggest prize funds in UK racing, matched only by the prestige that victory brings. As the most famous of Britain’s 5 classic races, The Derby is the one race that everyone wants to win and boasts an unrivalled roll of honour, from legendary names such as Seabird, Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Shergar and Galileo. This historic race dates back to 1780 and represents the culmination of style and sophistication, set alongside some exhilarating racing. In addition to The Derby, the other big race on this prestigious day in flat racing, is The Oaks, for the fillies, which predates even The Derby.
