The barrier draw has been conducted for the Group 1 Victoria Derby, which will run at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday November 2, 2013.
Likely race favourite Complacent has drawn the outside barrier of 16 for the 2013 Victoria Derby.
Complacent has won his last two race starts from barrier one, with the most recent being in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes.
The Authorized colt has won three of his five race starts in total and has earned more than $390,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
Complacent will be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the race and is trained by Peter Snowden at Flemington, giving him the home track advantage despite his wide draw.
Savvy Nature has also drawn well outside trainer John O’Shea’s ideal pick of one to seven with barrier 13.
The Savabeel gelding was relying on an inside barrier to give him the best chance of rolling the other fancies in the 2013 Victoria Derby.
However, one consolation for Savvy Nature is that he has drawn inside Complacent, who O’Shea perceives to be the biggest three.
If Savvy Nature comes into barrier 11 once the two emergencies are withdrawn, he will look to be the fourth horse in the past 30 years to win from that barrier.
Barrier one has seen the most wins in recent times, with four winners hailing from the inside gate in the past three decades.
Polanski has drawn barrier one for the 2013 Victoria Derby and will be ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman in the race.
