The Derby

Situated on the beautiful Epsom Downs and run for more than two centuries, The Derby is the jewel in English racing's crown. Thousands flock to Epsom Downs Racecourse to watch the race. The winning rider nets one of racing's most generous prize funds.

Champions have been crowned on the Epsom Downs since 1780, when Sir Charles Bunbury's Diomed won the inaugural running of the Derby Stakes. Nowadays The Derby remains the most coveted prize in racing, and one of the greatest occasions in the international sporting calendar.

Women dress up for Ladies' Day on Friday - spot fancy hats and pretty dresses everywhere. There's even a competition for the best-dressed lady. Past prizes have included a brand new Jeep!
