“The Derby Stakes”, officially the “Investec Derby”, popularly known as “The Derby”, is a Group 1 flat horse race in England open to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies. It is run at Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey over a distance of one mile, four furlongs and 6 yards (2,420 metres), on the first Saturday of June each year, since 1995. Before 1995, the race was held on the first Wednesday of June. The track is left-handed on a turf surface.

The inaugural running of the Derby was held on Thursday May 4, 1780, by the Stanley Family, Earls Of Derby, who had a long history of horse racing.

It is Britain's richest horse race, and the most prestigious of the five Classics. It is sometimes referred to as the “Blue Riband” of the turf. The race serves as the middle leg of the Triple Crown, preceded by the 2000 Guineas and followed by the St Leger, although the feat of winning all three is now rarely attempted. The name “Derby” has become synonymous with great races all over the world, and as such has been borrowed many times, notably by the Kentucky Derby.

The Derby run at Epsom is the original and in Great Britain is invariably referred to as “The Derby”. It is one of Britain's great national sporting events and has a large worldwide TV audience.
