Past Victoria Derby Results
Looking over the past Victoria Derby results can help punters with their Victoria Derby betting for the current spring.
For example the recent Victoria Derby results from the past decade show that from 2006 – 2015 just two favourites saluted for the punters: Efficient (2006) and Tarzino (2015).
In that time there were some very notable upset Victoria Derby results by roughie chances in the Victoria Derby odds including: Fiveandahalfstar ($40 in 2012) and Rebel Raider ($100 in 2008).
Doing the Victoria Derby form on the previous Victoria Derby winners can also reveal any trainers and jockeys with a stand-out record in the Victoria Derby results.
For example, jockey Hugh Bowman has ridden three Victoria Derby winners since 2010 with: Lion Tamer (2010), Sangster (2011) and Polanski (2013).
As the Victoria Derby is only open to three-year-old thoroughbreds, no horse can win the title on more than one occasion. However, jockeys and trainers can play an important role in making a decision on who to back. Researching Victoria Derby results from previous years will give you an insight into what sort of things to look for in the upcoming race, as well as reveal which jockeys and trainers have won the event in the past few years.
It’s true that lead up races often have more of an impact in deciding the Victoria Derby odds, but that’s not to say that Victoria Derby results from previous years don’t have their place. Famous jockey Damien Oliver won the event in 2001, 2003 and 2014, while Greg Hall and Greg Childs have both won the race twice within the past two decades.
In terms of trainers, Lee Freedman is the most successful of the past 20 years with three victories, while Michael Moroney had to wait another 12 years after claiming the Victoria Derby title way back in 1997.
