The Epsom Derby regarded by many as the greatest flat race in the world has been run since 1780. It is a crucial part of the five english classic races in the UK, it is run at Epsom Downs racecourse in early June.
The Derby was first thought of after the inaugural running of another of the classics, The Oaks Stakes in 1779.
When it was confirmed that another race was to be created itf was agreed that the race would be named after the host of the celebration The 12th Earl of Derby.
The uniqueness of the Epsom Downs racecourse means that a horse must be well balanced as the course has undulations which can leave a horse unsettled and disturbed and subsequently left behind. The race also requires the horse to have good stamina and also must have the speed to finish well in this very fast run race.
