Victoria Derby Exacta

The Victoria Derby exacta is an exotic bet type open at bookmakers around the country on the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m), held at Flemington Racecourse during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Like the Victoria Derby quinella, the exacta bet has you predicting the first two three-year-olds over the line in the spring classic but in exact finishing order.

For example, the winning 2020 Victoria Derby exacta was:

1st – #3 Johnny Get Angry

2nd – #6 Hit The Shot

Note that this was the exact order required to win. If the race had ended with Hit The Shot in first and upset winner Johnny Get Angry in second, then this Victoria Derby exacta would not have been successful.

How to Pick a Victoria Derby Exacta

Getting the Victoria Derby exacta right will take knowledge and some luck. It is a real challenge to get the exact finishing order of a race right, so you may also wish to consider a box Victoria Derby exacta to cover multiple combinations of horses and finishing order.

Regardless of how you place your Victoria Derby exacta, there are a few things to consider when making your selections. First is the AAMI Vase run the previous weekend, as that race has produced many Victoria Derby winners over the years. You should also avoid fillies in your picks for first place, as they have rarely won the Victoria Derby, instead being saved for a run in that week’s Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) over the same track / distance.

Where to Place a Victoria Derby Exacta

We recommend that every player uses online betting sites like Ladbrokes.com.au when placing a Victoria Derby exacta.

First of all, it’s a very secure method of betting while still being incredibly convenient.

Secondly, online betting sites often offer special bonus bets, and these are a great option for punters interested in more challenging bet types.

Thirdly, using online betting sites is surprisingly easy and intuitive, and shouldn’t be at all intimidating to new punters.
