Tasmanian Derby

The 2018 Tasmanian Derby is a Listed race, formerly Group 3, run in Australia’s island state every year. It’s one of the rare opportunities Tasmania has to showcase its talent to the nation with their three-year-old ranks put under the spotlight.

The Tasmanian Derby is a 2200m test with $100,000 up for grabs for the best three year old under set weight conditions.

Tasmania does not have many black-type races each year so the Tasmanian Derby is crucially important to them. As can be imagined it brings out the very best local talent with the odd interstate challenger also known to pop up.

While the winner of the Tasmanian Derby may not necessarily go on to be an all out champion, they do earn a heap of respect locally and the title of the being apple isles best three year old.

Some horses of note to come through the Tasmanian Derby include  Party Boy in 2001, Phantom Thief in 2005 and Betwixt in 2009.
