The Vodaphone Derby

The Vodafone Oaks and Vodafone Derby
Friday 2nd June and Saturday 3rd June 2006

Epsom Racecourse

There are countless Derby's around the world but the Vodafone Epsom Derby offers the unique challenge that pits the best horses of the Classic generation, ridden by the best jockeys around a course unlike any other anywhere in the world, and that consequently creates champions. That's why The Vodafone Derby is known as The Blue Riband of the Turf. That's why The Derby is the spiritual heart of flat racing.

Ever since the Derby was first run back in 1780 the crowd has been a central element of the occasion. The Derby is the highlight in the European flat racing calendar for 3 year olds over 1 1/2 miles. Its sister race, the Oaks, is run the day before, and is Britain's most valuable race for 3 year old fillies.

The Derby

The day has a more festive atmosphere than any other day in the racing calendar with vast crowds and the mood of a giant fair. The tradition derives from Victorian times when it was seen as an unofficial holiday for Londoners of all classes.

The Oaks

Now held on the first or second Friday in June, is a great crowd puller, particularly in recent years as it affords the opportunity to take a day off from work !
