The ATC Australian Derby is the premier distance race of the Sydney autumn for three-year-olds and is run over the classic derby distance of 2400m at set weights, which favours the classier types. The ATC Derby has become a prestigous event for three-year-olds on the Australian racing calendar and has a proud history of providing high quality winners who go on to become stars of the Australian turf.
The ATC Derby is a blue ribbon event and can enhance the winners value immensely, should they go on to become a stallion or a broodmare at the end of their career.
Gallopers of the ilk of Sky Heights (1999), Octagonal (1996), Mahogany (1994), Naturalism (1992), and Durbridge (1991) all won the ATC Derby before going on to win many of Australia's premier races year after year.
Any three-year-olds contesting the Derby will typically come via major 3yo races like the Gr1 Randwick Guineas at Randwick in April, or the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas and Gr2 Tulloch Stakes, held during the Rosehill carnival the previous couple of weeks. In recent times Criterion (2014) & It's A Dundeel (2013) have taken out the Rosehill Guineas & ATC Australian Derby double. Angel Of Truth (2019), Levendi (2018) and Jon Snow (2017) have all claimed the Tulloch Stakes and Australian Derby double in recent times.
The ATC Derby has proven a handy guide to the Gr1 Caulfield Cup at Caulfield during the Melbourne spring, with Descarado (2nd in 2010) going on to win the race the following spring and Monaco Consul (3rd in 2010) running third in both races. Nom Du Jeu (2008) and Roman Emperor (2009) both finished runner-up in the Caulfield Cup after winning the ATC Derby beforehand.
Angel Of Truth (2019) captured the Gr1 Tulloch Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill before leading all the way to win this event in impressive fashion for Kembla Grange trainer Gwenda Maxwell.
Recent ATC Australian Derby winners include Levendi (2018) and Jon Snow (2017).
