The Derby Trial Stakes is a race known for producing many greats. The role of honor for previous winners of the Group 3 Derby Trial includes household names and subsequent top-level Group 1 performers who have made their mark on some of the biggest sporting races in the world. Sinndar, Galileo, High Chaparral and Dylan Thomas are just some of the horses who have used this race as a steppingstone to English Derby success. 

The Derby Trial Stakes Day also hosts our Family Fun Day that is not to be missed. Our Family Fun Day offers lots of FREE FAMILY FUN entertainment. If you’re a lover of horseracing, our family fun day events are the perfect way to introduce children of all ages to the exciting world of racing.
