Ladies’ Day at the Epsom Derby Festival: Ladies’ Day at Epsom is an unforgettable combination of fashion, colour and glamour, a quintessentially British experience in the early summer. With a supporting cast of top Handicap races, there are two Group 1s showcasing some of the world’s best horses. The Coronation Cup run over a mile and a half for older horses has been a great race for favourite backers with 8 of the last 10 being won by the market leader. Claiming top billing, the Investec Oaks is the second oldest Classic, being the sister race to the Epsom Derby and the world’s most prestigious race for three year old fillies. Past winners include Oh So Sharp, Salsibil and the brilliant 2-time Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe winner, Enable, in the 2017 race. World class hospitality is the perfect complement to the supreme quality of the racing!
