Epsom Downs Race Calendar

Epsom Downs Race Calendar

Most people recognise Epsom Downs Racecourse as the majestic home of the Epsom Derby. Fewer people are aware that Epsom hosts four other big horse racing events each year, from April to the end of September.

 

The Derby may be the richest race in British horse racing, but the other meetings held here are just as exciting, with each race of equal importance to those concerned.

 

Epsom’s racing season kicks off in April with The Spring Meeting, which takes place about six weeks before The Epsom Derby. Next, Epsom holds two independent afternoon racing meetings in August and September, a few months apart. The Season Finale, held on the last Sunday of September, marks the end of Epsom Downs’ season.

The Epsom Spring Meeting Calendar

The Epsom Spring Meeting, which takes place every April, is the first meeting of The Epsom Downs Racecourse’s season.
