Investec Epsom Derby

01 - 02 June 2018

Overview


Each year 125,000 people flock to Epsom Downs on the first weekend in June to celebrate this historic and quintessentially British sporting event.

Epsom Downs Racecourse, a picturesque venue situated on the North Downs that offer panoramic views of London, plays host to two days of high class racing, fashion and entertainment.

To this day, the Epsom Derby remains the race that everyone around the world wants to win and boasts an unrivalled roll of honour. First run in 1779, there are few thoroughbred races that can match the Epsom Derby for history and prestige; the number of international races modelled on this Classic is testament to its stature as the “Blue Riband” of the turf.
