The Victoria Derby is a Group l staying race and is the premier race for three year old stayers during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is held at Flemington racecourse each year over 2500m.
The race is at Group l level and boasts a total prize pool of $1.5 Million and is at Set Weights for three year olds.
The 2017 Victoria Derby will be run on Saturday the 4th of November, 2017 at Flemington racecourse.
The Victoria Derby is the ideal race for late bloomers who are on the up, as we saw last year with Prized Icon.
Favourites have a pretty poor record in the race, with only two saluting in the last decade, with one of them being Tarzino in 2015.
