The Derby Festival is one of the most prestigious flat racing events on the social calendar. Held on the first weekend of June every year this event often heralds the beginning of the summer season proper and is notorious for its high stakes and overwhelming popularity.

The prestigious Derby is the most iconic flat race in the world, and rightly so when you consider its punishing course over a mile and a half between trees and bushes on the busy downs.

The notoriety from winning the race provides a lucrative future for the stallion and jockey, with a considerable amount of prize money on offer, and future breeding programs based entirely on the outcome.

This festival is also synonymous with the royal family, with the privileged course welcoming Her Majesty The Queen to The Derby for nearly 70 years, her attendance no doubt boosting the popularity of this event further.

One thing is for sure the Epsom Derby is truly one the best flat races in the world, it’s popularity is plain to see and is a true highlight of any sporting calendar.
