Epsom Downs Races

Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey has been regularly hosting elite horse races since the mid-1600s, with an incredible crowd capacity of 130,000 thanks to the nearby public access areas at the Epsom Downs.

Epsom Downs Racecourse, like Aintree and Cheltenham Racecourses, is owned by The Jockey Club and is home to one of the most prestigious races in the sport, the Epsom Derby, which offers over £1.6 million in prize money – just short of £1 million to the winner alone. This is the richest prize in British horse racing.

Epsom Downs Race Calendar

Our Epsom Downs Race Calendar will ensure you never skip a gallop by including an index of all the races scheduled to take place at Aintree along with pertinent details.

There are five separate meetings held at Epsom Downs each year, and with so much talent on display at each, you’d be a fool to miss either of them for pure entertainment or betting purposes.

Each year, the Epsom Spring Meeting takes place in mid to late April and features three days of elite horse racing. The feature race and showpiece of this unmissable event is the trial for the most prestigious and lucrative fixture on the National Hunt calendar – The Epsom Derby – granting its winner automatic entry into the big race.

The Derby Festival itself takes place just six weeks later, offering two magnificent days of exceptional flat racing, including the likes of The Coronation Cup, The Surrey Stakes, The Oaks Stakes and, of course, The Derby Stakes.

The next two meetings are single afternoon racing affairs – one in August and one in September. They take place just over a week apart, each offering captivating seven-race cards including qualifiers and flat races of various lengths.

Finally, on the last Sunday of September every year is The Epsom Season Finale, closing off yet another extraordinary season of high-quality racing in true Epsom Downs Fashion.

Epsom Downs Hospitality

This kind of glitzy, impressionable hospitality is rare anywhere in the world and we’re not just including sporting venues.

Those with a greater budget for race days will take in the energising experience of Epsom Downs from a glamorous vantage point on a private balcony or from a cosy, classy restaurant of their choice.

If you plan on eating lunch at a restaurant or catering outlet, or if you’re attending with a larger group, the hospitality offerings at Epsom Downs will be of much greater value to you than you would imagine.

Epsom Downs Free Bets

When it comes to placing a few wagers on the horses, nothing beats a few free bets to make the wagers totally risk-free.

There is so much rivalry between bookmakers for the business at meetings held by the Jockey Club, such as Epsom Downs, Aintree, Cheltenham, and Newmarket, that discounts and deals are thrown around left, right, and centre.

All free bet offers detected by our theoretical radars are shown right here for you to take advantage of as the races unfold at Epsom Downs Racecourse throughout the Summer.

Epsom Downs Odds

The aforementioned bookmaker rivalry is great news for punters, as odds are pushed to absurdly high levels in an effort to attract both old and new buyers.

The longest odds seen during The Derby Festival at the rearranged meeting last time out were as high as 150/1, which was the price of Gold Maze in The Derby itself.

There were also a few examples of 100/1 odds, which was the starting price of two horses in two separate races – Tiempo Vuela in The Oaks and Mythical in The Derby.

The biggest upset seen at the most recent edition of The Epsom Derby Festival was the win of 25/1 priced Serpentine in The Derby itself, who turned £10 outright betting stakes into £260 in returns, £250 in profits for those that had faith in the outsider.
