Derby Day

Victoria Derby 2024 - Derby Day

The 2024 Victoria Derby on Derby Day heralds the start of the Victoria Racing Club’s Melbourne Cup carnival held at the iconic Flemington racecourse in Melbourne.

The 2500m distance makes the Victoria Derby a gruelling test for spring three-year-olds and the $2 million in prize money makes the event one of the key races on the Australian racing calendar. In 2020 the race was won by Johnny Get Angry.
