The Epsom Derby Winners Since 2000

The Epsom Derby Winners Since 2000

The Epsom Derby is one of the richest races in Europe and has a prize fund for the winner currently standing but always rising year by year at £920,000 for the winner.

The Derby is always visited by the Queen who lands her helicopter so the plebs can wave and throw Stella cans at the sky before she sits up high in her private box with a perfect view of the course.

However don't worry if you don't have the £50 entrance fee to go into the stands. Blaggers will be hustling you all the way up Epsom Hill trying to get you to buy a dodgy ticket. However as the land within the circuit of the course is actually freeland there is no charge for being on it.

Therefore you can enter with your own alcohol, food and footballs to make the day more like a festival. If you are looking for tips on narrowing down a Derby winner then read this as it might help.

This means that now Derby Day is on a Saturday you can get crowds of up to 250,000+ inside the course, drinking, having a BBQ, watching the races on the screens and using one of the many bookies on the hill - just check your change when you are given it!

The Derby is the king race of the Triple Crown, placed between the Guineas and the St. Ledger at the end of the UK Flat season. 

Whereas in days of yore many trainers attempted the Triple Crown the last to go for it was Camelot in 2012 who won the 2,000 Guineas and the Derby but did not have the stamina to win the St. Ledger

In fact the lacklustre excitement of winning a triple crown has now been replaced by a Derby winning horse either going for the British or Irish Champions Day, or attempting both the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and then the Breeders Cup in the USA.
