WATC Derby Winners

The list of WATC Derby winners contains many illustrious names. First run in 1888, the list of past winners showcases over a century of fantastic stayers. For a century the race formed an integral part of the WATC Summer Carnival, until in 1988 it was shifted to Autumn (as a result, there was no race held in 1987). Between 1993 and 2002 the race again formed part of the Summer Carnival, but since then has been held in April. The race was held twice in 1993 due to the date changes. Interestingly, the 1891 winner Crash (not shown) won via a walkover, as all of the other four competitors were scratched.

Below are the WATC Derby winners since 1970.
