Jun 1st | The Epsom Derby - Ladies Day

The Epsom Downs Racecourse is one of the most famous horse racing courses in the world and the Epsom Derby is the main event.

It was first held in 1779 and now every year in early June, it pits three year old thoroughbreds, including one from the Queen’s stables, in a mile and a half long race against each other.

It is considered the richest and most prestigious of the classic races but is also famed for its opening day being “Ladies Day”; an opportunity to see the races while wearing elaborate headwear and dazzling dresses, with wide press coverage and fashion land treating it as a style event.
