Saturday June 24, 2017

Saturday is one of our favourite days of the whole year, with the legendary British Speed Derby as the feature class of the day. Over a set course, which stays the same every year, the fastest horses in the country are pitted against each other over some of our famous fixed obstacles, including the Irish Bank. 

The action starts earlier in the day though, with the Tom Hudson Derby Trophy and the brilliant Osborne Refrigerators Scurry Driving Championship, in which the precision needed to be victorious is quite astounding.
