How much prize money do the Epsom Derby and Oaks winners earn in 2022?

Spoiler alert, it's a lot!


Epsom is set to host one of the key meetings of the Flat racing season in Britain as two of the most prestigious prizes are dished out.

The star fillies of the Classic generation tackle the 1m4f trip in the Epsom Oaks at 4.30pm on Friday before the leading three-year-olds take to the track 24 hours later for the biggest race of the season, the Epsom Derby.


Success in either race secures a horse’s place in the history books but does it equate to a bumper pay day for winning connections?

The prize pot for the 2022 Epsom Derby totals a cool £1.5m, which is a significant hike from last year’s coronavirus-impacted fund of £1.125m. The winner will net a tidy £909,628 for connections and a priceless place in racing’s rich tapestry. Not too shabby for 12 furlongs of racing.


While it’s also one of the five Classics on the British Flat racing calendar, the 2022 Epsom Oaks doesn’t pack the same financial punch as the Derby but it still boasts a considerable kitty, with winning connections collecting £311,905 from a prize pot worth £525,000.
