Ridden by the 21-year-old Yves Saint-Martin, RELKO was a “strong, compact, perfectly balanced” bay horse. Reiko is actually a feminine Japanese name, meaning “beautiful” or “lovely child,”. The slow winning time was explained by the rain-softened state of the turf. It was not until October that the Jockey Club confirmed RELKO as the winner, stating that the substances detected could not be positively identified and therefore could not be proved to have affected the result. This Epsom Derby was run on Wednesday 29th May 1963 and the winner was bred by Monsieur Francois Dupre and trained by Francois Mathet. There were 26 runners and the winning time was 2 mins 39.4 secs. The winner won by 6 lengths. The winner won a first prize of £35,338 10s, the equivalent of £1,270,000 today.
