Racy sort of poems? (5)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'racy' is the definition.
(Epsom is a race course)
'sort of poems?' is the wordplay.
'sort of' indicates anagramming the letters.
'poems' with letters rearranged gives 'EPSOM'.
(Other definitions for epsom that I've seen before include "Mares would triumph here", "Mopes around English Derby venue", "Surrey racecourse", "Home to the Derby and the Oakes", "Location of English Derby", "can have horses", "Poems about the race-course", "- Salts are a purgative", "The Oaks and Derby are run here" and "place for racing".)
