“If you have never seen it before, terrier racing is one of the great spectator sports.”   Peter Thomas - Racing Post

Since 1780 the historic Epsom Racecourse has been the home of the world famous Derby and since 2003 it has also has been the scene of canine anarchy as dozens of barking mad terriers compete in the Omni Terrier Derby.

The Omni Terrier Derby has grown in popularity with dog owners and spectators over the past 14 years. An unmissable slice of nonsense that also raises an ever increasing amount for charities and keeps all number of canine hooligans off the street.

Along with their roving international reporter, Anna Webb from BBC Radio London's "Barking Blonds" programme has attended several Omni Terrier Derbies.
Catch their excellent programme - Jo Good & Anna Webb, THE BARKING HOUR, every Thursday 3pm-4pm BBC Radio London 94.9 FM & DAB.
