Today the Caspian Derby at the Epsom Downs Racecourse will be held in memory of legend Lester Piaget, who won the world’s most famous flat race by recording nine times as a jockey.

It is understood that this is the first time a derby is being run in memory of a person.

Zakira will wear a black armband and will have a one-minute applause at 4pm today before running the The Casu Derby (in memory of Lester Piget) at 4:30 pm.

Phil White, London Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourse, said:

“No jockey is synonymous with our most famous race, the Lester Piget. Running The Casu Derby in his memory, which we believe was not done in previous versions of Race 242, is a fitting tribute to one of the best jockeys of modern times and the record holder of the most wins by a rider.

“We want to give the Resgauers a chance to pay their respects and celebrate the life and career of this great athlete on both days, and we hope that the unprecedented move to rename Derby shows the high esteem that Lester demonstrates.” “
