2011 AJC Australian Derby Day – Randwick Race Fields & Programme

Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse will come to life this Saturday April 9 with a bumper nine-race programme to celebrate the 150th running of the AJC Australian Derby.

The 2011 AJC Australian Derby Day programme is headlined by three Group 1 features, including the meeting’s namesake race, the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m).

Jimmy Choux

2011 AJC Derby Favourite Jimmy Choux

Featuring a crack field of 14 three-year-olds the 2011 David Jones 150th AJC Australian Derby is scheduled to run as Randwick Race 7 at 3:40pm (AEST).

Clear favourite in the AJC Derby markets is consistent Kiwi colt Jimmy Choux, backing up from a last-start victory in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on March 26.

Jimmy Choux has won their past five race starts all at Group level and is currently the $2.20 favourite to make it six straight in the Derby on Saturday.

Notable rivals taking on Jimmy Choux in the 2011 AJC Derby field include Australian Guineas winning filly Shamrocker, the Peter Snowden-trained Retrieve and Gai Waterhouse’s Redoute’s Choice colt Light Brigade.

The two other elite status showdowns accompanying the Derby on Saturday are the $1 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) and the $500,000 Group 1 Inglis AJC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m), running as races five and six.

In the 2011 TJ Smith Stakes 10 rivals will take on the world’s best thoroughbred Black Caviar, looking to put an unlikely end to her freakish succession of wins.

Then in the AJC Sires Produce Stakes, Bart Cummings’ unbeaten colt Do You Think will start the favourite of an 11-horse field of two-year-olds following the early withdrawal of Smart Missile from the race.

Aside from the triple-shot of Group 1 action, the other six Randwick races this Saturday also hold Group status and feature plenty of talented turf stars to enjoy a punt on.

Below is a complete 2011 AJC Australian Derby Day race programme complete with the race number, scheduled start time, field and early favourite for all nine Randwick races.
