The Victoria Derby is one of the best classic races held at Flemington Racecourse as part of the prestigious and highly anticipated Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

This 2500m staying race, run on a left-handed turf course, takes place on the first day of the first of the four Melbourne Cup Carnival meetings each year on the Saturday before the famous Melbourne Cup. A Group 1 event for three-year-olds at set weights, the race is worth over $2 million and takes place in late October or early November.

The 2020 Victoria Derby runs on Saturday October 31, 2020 at Flemington.  

Victoria Derby Day

The Victoria Derby is the highlight event on the famous Victoria Derby Day. VRC Derby Day is one of the most exciting and elite meetings of the entire carnival as every race on the card holds group status, including three other fantastic Group 1 races: the Kennedy Cantala (1600m), Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) for three-year-olds and the Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) for the fillies and mares.

Punters can study the form of the horses in the traditional prep race to the Derby, the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day the weekend before. This lead-up event has been an excellent indication for the Victoria Derby in recent years, with many Derby winners coming via this middle distance race.

The Victoria Derby attracts a huge number of bets each year, and Derby day boasts the largest crowd attendance of any of the carnival’s race days. With so many spectators and punters, the betting markets on the Derby are always competitive and lucrative. The Victoria Derby also features in a number of popular betting doubles, including the Victoria Derby / Cox Plate double; Red Anchor (1984) was the last horse to take out this double.

2020 Victoria Derby Field

The Victoria Derby field attracts a line-up of the best three-year-old stayers of the season. The VRC Derby field rarely features fillies taking on the colts and geldings, the girls saved for the Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) the following Thursday.
Good lead-up races into the Victoria Derby field include the previous weekend’s Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) on Cox Plate Day and the Listed Geelong Classic (2200m) held in late October.

The 2020 Victoria Derby field is released on the Tuesday of race week and will be published in full below once announced by Racing Victoria.
