Epsom Racecourse


Located in Surrey, England, Epsom Downs is home to the prestigious Epsom Derby and Coronation Cup. This Grade 1 racecourse is a staple venue within horse racing and showcases impressive thoroughbred racing year on year.

The first race held at Epsom Racecourse was reportedly back in 1661. It didn’t take long for Epsom to become a well established racecourse. By 1730 the course was hosting two races year on year which proved increasingly popular.

The public location of the racecourse meant that people could in fact, watch the race for free, which in previous years had made The Derby the most attended racing event of the sporting calendar.

Officially owned by The Jockey Club the racecourse has long enjoyed affiliations with the Royal Family and the Queen.
