Friday 3 - Saturday 4 June
the cazoo derby festival
The Cazoo Derby Festival is two brilliant days of quality racing, entertainment and style.
Day one is Ladies' Day, which will take place on Friday 3 June 2022. Day two is Derby Day, featuring the greatest Flat race in the world, the Cazoo Derby. Derby Day will take place on Saturday 4 June 2022.
For 2022, Derby Day will form part of the four-day Jubilee weekend, to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
No race on the planet is quite like the Cazoo Derby and in 2022 the celebrations promise to be bigger and better than ever before.
Next year Derby Day at Epsom Downs won’t just celebrate the 243rd running of the world’s greatest Flat race, it will also stage an official commemoration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The monarch will mark the occasion by attending the Derby with members of her family. As a horseracing fan, owner of many Thoroughbred racehorses and also The Jockey Club’s Patron, Derby Day promises to be a fitting celebration of The Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
Run over a mile and a half in a unique setting, the race dates all the way back to 1780, when Diomed won the first ever Derby.
Since then it has become one of the most significant dates in the UK’s calendar, popular with royalty, racing fans and the many thousands who gather each year to watch both from grandstand enclosures and on ‘The Hill’ in the centre of the course.
While its influence over future generations of the Thoroughbred cannot be overstated, to those who make the annual pilgrimage it is an unrivalled sporting and social occasion.
However, the Cazoo Derby Festival is not just about one race. Two days of high quality racing feature the third Classic of the season, the Cazoo Oaks, on the Friday - Ladies’ Day - along with the Group One Coral Coronation Cup.
As well as the Cazoo Derby, Saturday’s card includes two Group Three contests in the Diomed Stakes and the Princess Elizabeth Stakes, while the ultra-competitive Epsom Dash Handicap over the minimum trip of five furlongs is regarded as the world’s fastest horse race.
Whether you’re in top hat and tails or something a little more casual, be a part of history and join us on Epsom Downs for the Cazoo Derby Festival, combining the greatest Flat race of them all with the chance to celebrate a once in a lifetime royal milestone.
