Epsom Derby Festival 2009

Friday 5th & Saturday 6th June 2009

The Investec Epsom Derby Festival is one of the most famous and iconic events in both the sporting and social calendars. The festival has traditionally been run over two days in the idyllic setting of the Epsom Downs Racecourse for over 230 years.

Huge crowds flocked to the racecourse for the opening day of the 2009 festival and our fantastic trackside hospitality facility was undoubtedly the place to be. Guests got the day underway with the Champagne and Pimms reception in the summer sunshine before taking their seats for a sumptuous three course luncheon. Our experience team of hostesses tooks drinks orders from guests tables as the excitement and anticipation was building ahead of the day's racing.

On the track the Investec Coronation Cup was the first feature race of the day, a fantastic flat race which had a thrilling finish with Ask prevailing in a three way photo finish, beating Youmzain and Look Here.

Friday also sees the ‘Style on the Downs' fashion competition, epitomising the essence of Ladies Day when chic summer outfits are adorned to find the most stylish lady on course, with the final winner being crowned live on the BBC.

The Investec Oaks was the second feature race of the day and Michael Bell’s Sariska narrowly beat Midday to claim the 2009 prize.


The highlight of the Investec Derby Festival is undoubtedly Saturday's Investec Derby. The race stands apart from any other as the greatest flat race in the world and has the biggest prize money in UK racing of £1.25m.

Guests again enjoyed the superb hospitality on offer throughout the day and with approximately 30 minutes between each race, the afternoon runs at the perfect pace, allowing clients to relax and mingle while sampling the top class sporting action.

The atmosphere trackside ahead of The Derby was palpable and when the race got underway, the crowd’s were not disappointed. The prime location of our restaurant allows guests to experience the action at close quarters, with a panoramic view as the horses thunder down the hill and into the finishing straight. A stunning 2009 Derby race culminated in Sea The Stars confirming himself a colt of the very highest class by completing a famous double, last achieved by the great Nashwan 20 years previously.

The hospitality continued through into the early evening as guests celebrated another fine Epsom Derby Festival with Hospitalityfinder at one of the most historic and quintessentially English events.
