Epsom Oaks history
While the Derby may overshadow the Oaks these days, the Oaks was actually first run in 1779, a year before the first ever Derby. Named after a house located to the east of Epsom in which the 12th Earl of Derby resided, Lord Derby owned the inaugural Oaks winner, Bridget, trained by Saunders and ridden by Dick Goodisson. Since the inaugural race in 1779 the paying public have never missed a running of the Oaks with two world wars failing to stop the race from being run.
