Epsom Downs racecourse is home to the Vodafone Derby - the original and ultimate test over the unique mile and a half course on the first Saturday in June. Epsom is a unique course with its downhill run entering the straight which a lot of horses do not act on very well.
The Derby was up to a few years ago staged on the first Wednesday in June and provided the gentry with a day off work from the city. In recent years with the Vodaphone sponsorship the derby is now held at the weekend which has boosted the crowds in recent years. It is an occasion to put on top and tails and for the ladies to don there Ascot hats prior to the Royal Meeting.
In the last couple of years during the long evening in the summer the fantastic Epsom Live! a series of four evening meetings featuring live racing and live music! has taken off bringing a new bred of customer to the track.
