The view from our lens: The Investec Derby Festival 2017

August 8, 2017

This British weather really does make it feel as though summer is over, however it wasn’t long ago, in fact only a couple of months ago, that we were basking in glorious sunshine and watching the greatest flat race in the world at the Investec Derby Festival.

This year saw 40-1 outsider Wings of Eagles win the 2017 Investec Derby, the longest-odds Derby winner since 50-1 shot Snow Knight won in 1975.

Here’s just a few shots to see for yourself… 

Tattenham Straight

Guests were able to watch all of the action on the celebrated Tattenham Straight – a pivotal point as the horses approach the final furlong of the race, while enjoying a seated three-course summer lunch in a stunning glass-fronted structure with a private viewing terrace.
