2010 Victoria Derby Results

October 30th, 2010

The 2010 Victoria Derby results did not go as expected, with Lion Tamer shooting down the straight like a bullet to score a dominant win.

For much of the run, the lead swapped between Lion Tamer, Almindoro and Ulundi. While they all vied for position, only Lion Tamer had the stamina to keep up the pace for the full distance. That became truly apparent as they all ran home, with Lion Tamer finishing far out in front.

Praecido managed to take second, his best result yet in a Group race. A first Group win still eludes him, but it must surely just be a matter of time for the colt.

The heavy favourite Retrieve kept some dignity by taking third place, but it was still a disappointing performance after his Norman Robinson Stakes run. He just doesn’t seem to perform in the big runs, and it is doubly disappointing given that the wet should have worked well for him.
