Frankie Dettori and A.P. McCoy
The historic Epsom Derby will be run Saturday, June 4. The 12-furlong classic, known as the “Blue Riband” of the turf, was first held in 1780. The inaugural edition was won by Diomed.
Over the years, such great horses as Isinglass, Persimmon, Blenheim, Mahmoud, Sea Bird, and Nijinsky – to name just a few – have captured the race.
As part of the lead up to this year’s edition of the Derby, Great British Racing has released a video in which racing fans can ‘ride’ the course with legendary jockeys, Frankie Dettori and Sir Anthony McCoy. Enjoy!
