Shergar, Mill Reef, Nijinsky are all legendary Derby winners that have trod the famous Epsom turf.

There is a raffle, food, and other attractions including the best turned out fun dog show- a chance to win a his and hers doggie hats. The races are just £3 to enter your doggie and free to spectators – with an optional donation to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.


Every penny raised goes to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity – you can donate via Just Giving -follow the link on www.terrierderby.com – or go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/terrierderby22


If you have any breed, up to around 15” at the shoulder, bring them along or just come and enjoy the fun with the Terrier Racing set. There are 16 heats followed by quarter and semi-finals then the grand final with the terriers chasing a lure towed by a (not so) state of the art contraption.
