On Friday 1st June, Epsom Downs Racecourse will come alive with roaring laughter as gates open for the 2018 Investec Derby Festival. A key focus of the day is the stunning fashion, celebrated with the annual Style Award competition. Supported by Chi Chi London, a plethora of prizes are on offer, worth over £5000 to the best-dressed female.
The racing holds exhilarating scenes with two Group 1 races, The Coronation Cup won in 2017 by HIGHLAND REEL and The Investec Oaks, the contest of the three-year-old fillies, won last year by the incredible ENABLE.
The day will end in style with the Official After Party on the Hyperion Lawn, hosted by Investec Derby Festival, Ambassador Vogue Williams.

Saturday 2nd June 2018
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, Investec Derby Day delivers a truly quintessentially British experience.
Amongst the seven races is the Supreme Test of the Racehorse, the Investec Derby. The one everyone wants to win, with a prize pot of £1.5 million. In 2017, it was 40/1 outsider WINGS OF EAGLES, ridden to victory by Padraig Beggy that took the title, will 2018 bring more surprises?
