Sandown Racecourse
A Brief History Of Sandown Classic Trial
The Sandown Classic Trial is a Group 3 flat horse race for three-year-old thoroughbreds run over a distance of 1 mile 2 furlongs and 7 yards (2,018 metres) at Sandown Park Racecourse in late April.

It is an early-season trial race for the Epsom Derby, and successful horses here are often aimed at another trial before the big race.
