  • Cast in silver and based on the undulating Epsom course, the modern Oaks Trophy will make an eye-catching addition to any racehorse owner or trainer’s mantelpiece.

    The new trophy has been created by equestrian artist Charlie Langton. It incorporates a small sculpture of the first winner of the Classic, Bridget — owned by the 12th Earl of Derby in 1779.

    And to celebrate the race’s history, all past winners’ names are engraved on it.

    “The design is similar to that of the Derby Trophy [which Charlie made in 2010], as I wanted to keep the dynamic shape of the base, which reflects the unique terrain of Epsom,” said Charlie.

    The trophy was unveiled on 23 April, 2014 and was made in association with silversmith Asprey and commissioned by title sponsor Investec.

    This year the Oaks will be run in memory of Sir Henry Cecil.
