Epsom Downs Racecourse comes alive with roaring laughter as gates open for the Investec Derby Festival. Across the Queen’s Stand to The Hill there is an air of excitement all round.
A key focus of the day is the stunning fashion, celebrated with the annual Style Award competition. Abigail Scott, looking lovely in Ted Baker, took the 2017 title, winning herself a superb selection of prizes, including a luxury holiday to Mexico.
The racing holds some exhilarating scenes with two Group 1 races, The Coronation Cup won by Highland Reel in 2017 and The Investec Oaks, which was last year run in a dramatic downpour with Enable securing the win.
The day is finished off in style with a celebrity DJ set on the Hyperion Lawn for the official after party. Join us for Investec Ladies’ Day 2018 for glamour and exhilarating racing action.
One of the greatest race days and social occasions of the British summer calendar.
From the carnival atmosphere and picnics on the Hill, to top hat and tails in the Queen’s Stand and upbeat musical entertainment, topped off by a post DJ set from BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, on the Hyperion Lawn in the Duchess’s Stand, the day delivers a truly quintessentially British experience.
Amongst the seven races, is the Supreme Test of the Racehorse, the Investec Derby, which last year crowned the 40/1 outsider WINGS OF EAGLES as its champion.
