Derby Stakes Day from England (Sat, 4 July – 1st race starts at 8:50pm)
Seven races from the Derby meeting to be held at Epsom Downs Racecourse in Britain will be simulcast for betting from late evening on Saturday, 4 July.
The G1 Derby dates back to 1780 and is probably the most famous flat race in the world. Over the years, the race became so successful that it inspired versions of the Derby in almost every racing nation in the world. The undulations at Epsom and the testing descent from Tattenham Corner have made the Derby a strong test of balance, speed and stamina. Winning the Blue Riband of the Turf remains the lifetime dream of every horseman.
The Derby has been rescheduled from its traditional date in June owing to the coronavirus outbreak. The meeting will take place behind closed doors but racing fans watching at home will be excited to know that the G1 Oaks (the fillies classic over the same mile and a half distance as the Derby) will be run on the same day, providing an exciting G1 classic double-header.
The seven simulcast races are:
S1-1 08:50 pm Woodcote Stakes
S1-2 09:25 pm Surrey Stakes
S1-3 10:00 pm 4yo+ Handicap
S1-4 10:40 pm Oaks Stakes
S1-5 11:15 pm Princess Elizabeth Stakes
S1-6 11:55 pm Derby Stakes
