Tasmanian Derby

The Tasmanian Derby is a Listed race for three-year-olds that takes place each February at Hobart racecourse in Hobart, Tasmania. The race is run over a distance of 2200 metres and worth $150,000 in prize money. The 2020 Tasmanian Derby was won by Vamos Raffa from Skyt with Argyle Beach third.

Tasmania hosts Group 3 and Listed racing only, with no Group 1 or 2 races throughout the racing season. Feature races include the Group 3 Hobart Cup, Group 3 Launceston Cup, Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy and Group 3 Vamos Stakes. The Tasmanian Derby lost its Group 3 status during the 2011/2012 racing season and is now a listed event.

Track: Hobart racecourse, Hobart
Distance: 2200 metres
Race Type: 3yo - Set Weights
Status: Listed
Prize Money: $150,000
2020 Winner: Vamos Raffa

The Tasmanian Derby is the premier distance event for 3yo gallopers during the summer carnival in Hobart. The race generally attracts the best three-year-olds going around locally in Tasmania, while interstate trainers may consider bringing a promising type down to Tassie occasionally for the chance to win a Derby.

Typically not a race for elite three-year-olds, the Tasmanian Derby is more likely to be taken out by a more than handy local type, rather than an outstanding one.

Vamos Raffa (2020) ran third in the Listed Launceston Guineas over 2100m at at Launceston before scoring a comfortable victory in this event for trainer Scott Brunton.

Recent Tasmanian Derby winners include Cossetot (2019) and Civil Disobedience (2018) and Northwest Passage (2017).
