And was won by Diomed who was owned by Sir Charles Bunbury. As legend has it this race could have been named after Bunbury if it wasn’t for a coin toss between him and the Earl of Derby which landed in the Earl’s favour.The last three winners of the Derby festival have all been trained by Aidan O’Brien. And two of those winners were jockeyed by Aidan’s son Joseph O’Brien. Ryan Moore gets an honourable mention as he Jockeyed two of the last five winners. The fastest winning time at this event was by Workforce in 2010 with a time of 2m 31.33s.
