The world’s greatest Flat race kicks off today at 1:30pm and jockeys, trainers and owners will all be dreaming of the £850,000 first prize and a chance to enter the sport’s folklore.
This year, the finest three-year-old colts in the world will thunder over the famous course at the earliest ever start time of 1.30pm.
The Epsom Derby usually starts at 4:30pm BST, but that will not be the case this year.
Due to the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United, the prestigious race will start at a different time.
The Wembley final has been brought forward to 3pm on Saturday, June 3rd due to safety concerns.
This has resulted in the Epsom Derby being brought forward to 1:30pm BST.
James Crespi, general manager of Epsom, said this on the matter: “This year, the first Saturday in June will play host to two Derbys and two of Britain’s great sporting events.
“In order to give fans of both horse racing and football the opportunity to enjoy the Betfred Derby and the FA Cup final and to maximise the publicity and exposure of these two iconic sporting occasions, which will both be broadcast live on ITV1, we have made some changes to our usual schedule.
“We are grateful to our partners at ITV and our generous sponsors Betfred for their help in facilitating the move, and we can’t wait for what is sure to be a great afternoon for British sport.”
Last year’s race was won by Desert Crown, who romped to victory on just his third career start for Sir Michael Stoute.
