    First raced in 1861, the Australian Derby has undergone a number of changes over the years including a 24 year period where geldings were not permitted to race in the event.

    Raced at set weights for three-year-olds at the iconic Randwick racecourse, the event is considered the premier 3YO event in Australian and New Zealand.
