Investec Derby Festival – Epsom Ladies Day and Epsom Derby Day Corporate Hospitality Packages 2018
The Investec Epsom Derby is synonymous with style, elegance and world-class racing. The cherished occasion, which spans across two delightful days, attracts some of the world’s finest trainers, jockeys and horses to compete on the iconic Epsom Downs Racecourse.
The electrifying atmosphere that reverberates throughout the crowd as the horses thunder towards the Tattenham Straight is certainly an experience that will live long in the memory of any racegoer. Our official Epsom Derby corporate hospitality packages allow you not only to be there, but see all of the scintillating action in splendid VIP style.
The Investec Epsom Derby Festival kicks-off on Friday 2nd June 2018 with Epsom Derby Ladies Day. This famous event combines the very best in fabulous fashion, style and riveting horse racing as fans flock to Epsom Racecourse for this extremely attractive day out.
The signature event on the opening day of the Epsom Derby Festival is the gripping Epsom Oaks. It represents one of the finest racing platforms for three-year-old fillies and is one of the five classic races run in Britain during the frenetic flat season.
The Epsom Oaks is one of the oldest races in the racing calendar with its inaugural running taking place in 1779. Since then it has developed into one of the world’s most decorated sporting contests, having been won by some of the finest horses of all-time.
One man has dominated the Epsom Oaks more than most in recent times with Italian supremo Frankie Dettori taking four of the 17 races since 2000. In 2017 Dettori produced a masterclass as he and Enable weathered a furious thunderstorm to beat hot favourite Rhododendron on the pulsating final straight. It provided spectacular viewing for the jubilant crowd and fans will be hoping for more thrilling theatrics when the action resumes once again.
You can experience this world famous race first-hand with our Epsom Derby Ladies Day corporate hospitality packages.
The second day of the meeting is the phenomenal Epsom Derby Day. The feature race of the afternoon is, of course, the Investec Epsom Derby – the premier race of the season featuring the world’s greatest three-year-old colts.
First run in 1780, it is a prominent fixture amongst the five classic races in Britain run during the season alongside The Newmarket Guineas (1000 & 2000), The Epsom Oaks and The St Leger Stakes. The Blue Riband event also forms the middle leg of the legendary Triple Crown.
Often described as the “ultimate test of a horse” the Epsom Derby requires incredible speed, stamina, balance and a good deal of luck. Those who have the mettle to win this renowned sporting contest will eternally cement their place alongside some of the all-time greats.
