Epsom Derby History

The Epsom Derby is famous around the world and is the regarded as the most prestigious race in the UK on the flat, the race itself is open to three year-old and fillies and colts and is run over the 1 mile 4 furlongs at the stunning Epsom Downs racecourse. It is the richest horse race in the UK and Derby Day is always one of those most popular with horse racing fans and punters, any horse that comes out on top will have to be able to deal with the unique test on offer at Epsom. It is a race steeped in history having first been run in 1780 and it is a race that has spawned several copy cat races around the world, with all the major racing nations now hosting their own version of the Derby which highlights its impact on the sport.

Derby Day is one of the biggest days in racing and the race has thrown up a number of famous winners over the year’s including the great Nijinsky won the Derby in 1970 as part of the Triple Crown alongside the 2000 Guineas and St Leger. He formed a formidable partnership with the great Lester Piggott who himself holds the record for the most Derby victories having won the race a remarkable nine times during his illustrious career. Another legendary winner of the race was Shergar who won the Derby by a record ten lengths in 1981; his victory has gone down in history as just two years later he was kidnapped and never found making his Derby win the stuff of legends.

More recently there have been some winners of the highest quality, in 2009 Sea The Stars won the Derby on the way to a perfect season which included victories in the 2000 Guineas and the Prix de L’Arc De Triomphe at Longchamp. His Derby win was the springboard to major success across Europe and it shows the significance of the Epsom Classic on the racing calendar for a three year-olds. While Workforce won the race in 2010 in a record breaking time of 2m 31.33s for trainer Sir Michael Stoute and Jockey Ryan Moore, he simply hosed up at Epsom record a victory that will live long in the memory in season which once again saw the Derby winner go onto win the Arc de Triomphe at the end of the season.
