Victoria Derby Field

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 2021 Victoria Derby field is due for release on Tuesday of race week, four days before the race runs on Saturday October 30, 2021 – the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup takes place on the first Tuesday of November.

2021 Victoria Derby Field, Nominations & Acceptance Dates

  • 2021 Victoria Derby Nominations: Closes on Tuesday October 5, 2021 – Drew 63 Entries
  • 2021 Victoria Derby First Acceptances: Close on Tuesday October 19, 2021
  • 2021 Victoria Derby Final Field: Released on Tuesday October 26, 2021

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.

2021 Victoria Derby Final Field

The 2021 Victoria Derby field will be released by Racing Victoria on the Tuesday leading-up to Derby Day and published in full below.
