Victoria Derby Field

The $1.5 million Group 1 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 2016 Victoria Derby field is due for release on Wednesday October 26, three days before the race runs on Saturday October 29, 2016 – the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup runs on the first Tuesday of November.

Before the release of the Victoria Derby field, 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.
