The race is run over a distance of 1 mile, 4 furlongs, and 6 yards (approximately 2,420 meters).

The Derby, which began in 1780, is one of the biggest horse races in Europe, with a massive global TV audience.

The inaugural race was held in 1780. It was named after Edward Smith-Stanley, the 12th Earl of Derby, following a coin toss between him and Sir Charles Bunbury, another influential figure in racing history. For sponsorship reasons, the event is currently called the Betfred Derby and the festival is called the the Betfred Derby Festival.

The Derby is the middle leg of the English Triple Crown, flanked by the 2,000 Guineas and the St Leger Stakes. However, winning the Triple Crown is extremely rare in modern racing.
