The South Australian Derby is the feature staying race for three year olds during the Adelaide Carnival. It is held at Morphettville racecourse each year over 2500m and is a highlight of the Carnival.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $500,000 and is at set weights for all three year olds.
The 2018 South Australian Derby will be run on Saturday the 12th of May, 2018 at Morphettville racecourse.
The South Australian Derby is a race generally set up for the best local, or perhaps a three year old on an upward spiral, as we saw 12 months back with star filly Delicacy.
This race has been kind to favourites over the last decade, winning on six occasions, with only two winners starting $10 or better.
