Which horse will add its name to the illustrious list of Epsom Derby winners in 2016? Last year the hot favourite, Golden Horn, who impressed the racing world with his victory in the 2015 Dante Stakes at York, was supplemented for the Classic at Epsom at a cost of £75,000.

When he went on to beat Jack Hobbs under housewives’ favourite Frankie Dettori, Golden Horn joined the illustrious list of Derby winners, the first of which was Diomed back in 1780.

Diomed was owned by Sir Charles Bunbury, who collected prize money of £1,065 15s. The race was held at the Oaks Estate and named after its host, the 12th Earl of Derby. The first four runnings of the Derby were over 1 mile, but this was amended to the current distance of 1½ miles in 1784. Lord Derby first won the race in 1787, with a horse called Sir Peter Teazle.
