AAMI Victoria Derby Day 2018

Gates open at 8.30am • First race at 11:45am • Last race at 5:20pm

Considered by many to be the most prestigious day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, AAMI Victoria Derby Day embodies a world of glamour and sophistication – only to be matched by an impressive day of all black type races.

Everyone from fashionistas to racing die-hards to first-timers RSVP to AAMI Victoria Derby Day on Saturday 3rd November, 2018. Widely regarded as one of the most prestigious days of racing in Australasia, AAMI Victoria Derby Day is known as a day of exceptional racing, fabulous fashion and colourful entertainment.

The day features a card of nine Group races, with four at the elite Group 1 level. The feature Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby is Australia's premier staying classic for 3 year olds. This is the last chance for horses to qualify for the Cup, so there’s a lot at stake on the track.

Off the track there’s plenty of action too. Live music, amazing bars and restaurants and more will keep you entertained all day long.

Although the dress code is black and white, it’s an incredibly colourful day. Myer’s Fashions on the Field competition begins for both men and women, with ladies embracing the classic dress-code of black and white and men decked out in sleek grey suits.
