The greatest show on turf. The thrill of The Hill. A beacon of buzz. A town on its toes. Epsom plays host to the world as race goers and fun lovers get giddy on colour, gasp in awe at the flowers the size of towers and get lost in the ups of the Downs. The crown jewel of all races. The one that sired all the others. Historic, unmatchable, eternal. Birthplace of thoroughbred sprinting, it’s one chance for three-year-olds to make history. Champions of the future are found here. Destiny calls, glory beckons. 

The Betfred Derby Festival at Epsom Downs Racecourse is for everyone, from racing royalty to racing rookie. We open our gates, arms and hearts to the world. In a way, everyone rides The Betfred Derby, being part of it, getting carried away and taking the feel good carnival spirit back home.
