North Light
Derby Result

KIEREN FALLON rode a masterful race on North Light to take this year's Vodafone Derby for Sir Michael Stoute, the pair having been successful last year with Kris Kin. The champion jockey had his mount in the front two throughout the race as he took a lead from Meath and Fallon pushed the Danehill colt into the clear as the field turned into the straight.

Derby News & Review
Frankie Dettori's Derby hoodoo continued as Snow Ridge, the joint-favourite with the triumphant North Light, finished back in seventh in the Vodaphone Derby. Dettori, yet to claim a Derby win, admitted that 7-2 priced Snow Ridge never looked happy on the course and failed to get in anything like a serious blow.
Oaks Result

OUIJA BOARD put up a hugely impressive performance to claim the Vodafone Oaks at Epsom on June 4th. Ed Dunlop's filly took up the running two furlongs out under Kieren Fallon and the 7-2 chance swept clear of 11-4 favourite All Too Beautiful.

Frankie Dettori has opted for the mount on Punctilious, who will face six opponents in Friday's Vodafone Oaks at Epsom Downs. Ouija's Board's Classic claims were enhanced after Rave Reviews and Sahool franked her form with a one-two at Newbury on May 14.

History of the Vodafone Derby
History of the Vodafone Derby
Edward Smith Stanley, the 12th Earl of Derby, organised a race for himself and his friends to race their three-year-old fillies over one and a half miles. He named it the Oaks after his estate. The race became so successful that the following year a new race was added for colts and fillies.

Epsom Downs Racecourse
In 1779, two gentlemen conceived the idea of a race to establish which horse was the best of its generation. Little did they realise when they tossed a coin to name the race that they were shaping the future of flat racing and breeding, Derby Day, stands apart from ordinary sporting events and represents the pinnacle of sport.
