Victoria Derby History

A large part of the fabric of Melbourne racing, the Victoria Derby was first run and in 1855 by Rose Of May and the race has gone from strength-to-strength ever since. 

The immortal Phar Lap was a winner in 1929, Dulcify took out the event 1978 and in more recent times Extra Brut took out the Derby before being sold to Hong Kong.

Worth $2 million, the Victoria Derby is the feature race on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, which runs for four total race days over the course of a week. 

These days the event doesn't draw the absolute cream of the crop like it previously did but the huge prize money on offer will ensure the fields are competitive for years to come.
