2012 Victoria Derby Day is due to kick off at Flemington Racecourse within the hour, with the first race due to jump at 11.20am (AEDT) today.
Due to the high profile nature of today’s race card, there have been only three scratchings over the entire day.
The most high profile is Mid Summer Music, who has been withdrawn from the Group 3 TAB.com.au Stakes.
Mid Summer Music has had two starts this campaign, with her most recent resulting in a seventh placing in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint at Caulfield Racecourse on October 20, 2012.
The seven-year-old has won 10 of her 26 race starts and has earned more than $1.28 million in prize money during her horse racing career.
Betting favourite for the 2012 TAB.com.au Stakes is now Fawkner, who is paying odds of $2.60 at bookmaker.com.au.
