The History of The Oaks

The Oaks was named after an estate which is to the east of Epsom and leased to the 12th Earl of Derby in the 18th century. The idea for the race came during a party held on the estate in 1778 and first took place the following year with Bridget winning the race. The filly was owned by Lord Derby. Since 1892 all horses taking part in the race carry 9 stones. The race has always been held at Epsom apart from during the two World Wars in the 20th century when it was held at Newmarket.

The Oaks Trends

Two outright favourite have won the race since 2006.

The last 10 winners had run once or twice during the season.
