The Group 1 $2 million Victoria Derby (2500m) is the feature race on Victoria Derby Day, which kicks off the Melbourne Cup Carnival, and the Victoria Derby field features a line-up of the season’s best three-year-old stayers.
The 2019 Victoria Derby field is due for release on Tuesday of race week, four days before the race runs on Saturday November 2, 2019 – the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup takes place on the first Tuesday of November.
Before the release of the Victoria Derby field each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Victoria Derby nominations are taken in September. This is followed by Victoria Derby first acceptances in October and then the final field of Victoria Derby acceptances.
As an indication of horses likely to contest the Victoria Derby field it is a good idea to watch the earlier three-year-old races like the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) held three weeks earlier.
2019 Victoria Derby Final Field
The 2019 Victoria Derby field will be released by Racing Victoria on the Tuesday leading-up to Derby Day and published in full below.
The 2019 VRC Derby Field features 16 hopefuls including the Spring Champion Stakes winner Shadow Hero who defeated subsequent Cox Plate runner-up Castelvecchio. The Caulfield Classic winner Thought Of That is drawn the rails, while the Kiwi raider Long Jack backs up off a Geelong Classic victory but is drawn the outside alley (16 of 16).
Update: After showing signs of inflammation to his high suspensory the Danny O’Brien-trained #5 Serious Liaison (7) has been scratched from the 2019 VRC Derby field.
