Restrepo will attempt to recreate his magnificent heat performance when he steps out for the Group 1 Victoria Derby final at Tabcorp Melton tomorrow February 4, 2012.
The four-year-old gelding won his Victoria Derby heat easier than any other runner in the 2012 Victoria Derby and will be looking to do the same tomorrow night.
Restrepo will have to contend with a second row draw when he runs in the 2012 Victoria Derby.
The Art Major colt has won seven of his eight race starts and has earned more than $60,000 in prize money.
Co-trainer Clayton Tonkin believes Restrepo has the best chance of any horse in tomorrow’s 2012 Victoria Derby.
“We’ve had a lot of very good horses come through our place, like Bonavista Bay and Safari, but what he can do is unbelievable,” Tonkin said.
“He’s right up there with them already, and there’s plenty more to come.
“He is exceptional and I wouldn’t be swapping him for anything else in the race.”
The 2012 Victoria Derby will also share it’s program with the $400,000 Group 1 Hunter Cup, the Group 1 Inter Dominion Trotting Championship Final, the Group 2 Inter Dominion Trotting Championship Consolation Final and the Group 3 Bonanza.
