More About Investec Derby Day - Named on the Flip of a Coin
The origins of this storied event go as far back at the late 18th century, when the Oaks Stakes was first run at Epsom Downs. According to legend, it was named after two attendees, organiser the 12th Earl of Derby and guest Sir Charles Bunbury, decided to flip a coin. The event continued to run over the following years, with regular changes made to the starting point and distance. Aside from the years falling within the two World Wars, when the race moved to Newmarket, it has always been run at Epsom, where the grandstand and spectator space can host large capacity crowds. The sport has birthed many a legend, including champion jockey Lester Piggott, whose record-breaking nine-win streak spanned an amazing 29 years. Meanwhile, the past decade has seen household names such as Frankie Dettori and Kieron Fallon ride their horses to victory.
Such is the pomp and spectacle around the event that a film has even been made around it, the 1952 movie hit Derby Day. Witness a piece of sporting history being written for yourself - buy Investec Derby Day tickets for the Epsom Derby on StubHub UK today.
