The three-day meeting is centred around the Derby trial, the Dante, which was first run in 1958, the one-mile-two-furlong clash attracting some of the best three-year-olds from across Europe. There have been ten runners who have completed the Dante-Derby double, the most recent, Golden Horn in 2015, with the John Gosden-trained thoroughbred completing a memorable hat-trick by claiming the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – in total his racing career spanned just 367 days.
