Victoria Derby 2011 Key Dates & Scheduling

July 20th, 2011

The 2011 Victoria Derby is still a while away however it’s not too long until we’ll get a bit of an idea about what sort of field we’ll be looking at on the day.

Right around the country nominations have been flooding in for the Victoria Derby 2011 with a huge number of horses holding the dreams of connections and trainers.

The 2500m race is one of the feature events of the Melbourne spring carnival, a tough ask to stand out among so many other high quality events.

The Victoria Derby itself is scheduled for Saturday the 29th of October this year, right in the period of most interest in Australian horse racing.

While that is the ultimate date to keep in mind, if you want an early start to your form guides here are the dates trainers are working off.

Nominations close for the 2011 Victoria Derby on Tuesday September 20th.

That’s around the time the spring carnival is starting to heat up but it’s worth setting aside some time to have a look through who’s in and who you should be keeping an eye on.

The next important date is the first declaration, that will be on Tuesday October 18th, at this stage the field will be cut rather drastically with a much better idea of the big players having been determined.

After that it’s just one more date to remember, final acceptances will be released on Wednesday October 26th, the $8,250 nee needed to be paid up by 9am.

This will give us our final field and when betting really starts to vamp up.

Remember though if you get in earlier and take advantage of pre-post betting your odds will be a lot higher.
