Spectacular win at the Investec Derby Festival
Wings of Eagles defied the odds at 40-1 to snatch victory in the Investec Derby Stakes, pipping Cliffs of Moher to the post as the breathless crowds looked on.
More than two centuries since it was first run, the world’s greatest flat race continues to capture the imagination of the great and good, who this year included Millie Mackintosh, Jodie Kidd and Hugo Taylor, as well as Investec ambassadors Emilia Fox, Ella Catliff, Teo van den Broeke and Rachel Trevor Morgan. Her Majesty the Queen saw Wings of Eagles’ remarkable win, the biggest Derby upset for 43 years.
